Benevolence Admin

My Family: Married for nearly 25 years to my husband, Chris with our 3 children, Jessica (along with her husband, JoJo), Micaela and Logan. We are soon-to-be empty-nesters who are looking forward to the next phase in life. We have been enjoying watching our children become the wonderful adults God created them to be.

My Story: I was born in Colorado and at the age of 5 our family moved to Alaska. Life was an adventure and when my father had an emergency helicopter landing in the small town of Talkeetna, it lead to an invitation to a home group meeting that would change my life forever. My growing up in that small close-knit community and church family, with a few bumps along the way, brought me to meeting my husband while attending Bible school in Anchorage. We were married and Chris adopted my daughter Jessica. After the birth of our other two children we decided to throw caution to the wind and head to a warmer climate. We moved to Idaho in June of 1998 and eventually became members of RLM in 2008. After 7 years of volunteering with our Benevolence ministry and in God’s perfect timing, I was blessed with a position working with the team I love after being a stay-at-home mom

Favorite Verse: Favorite Verse – I think it changes daily! However, I love the message of Romans 8…Nothing can separate us from the love of God!

Food: I LOVE trying new foods! From exotic fruits to sushi to baba ghannouj and of course dark chocolate and good coffee.

Quote: “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning how to dance in the rain!”

Hobby: Traveling, sharing good food and great conversations with friends & family and reading.
