I was raised as a "church kid" from a Christian home. I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was only 5 years old, and was baptized at Redwood Chapel at the age of 12. I thank God for bringing me to faith at an early age, knowing that going through the trials of life without Him, I would have been a much different person. As I have grown in knowledge of my Lord, Savior, and Lover of my soul, He has carried me and my family through loss of loved ones, pain of broken church families, financial crises, and physical pain. Every step of the way, He has shown His love and faithfulness. The Lord has gifted me and my family with talents that we can use to edify the body of Christ and grow His kingdom. I am loving the adventure of raising up children who love and worship Jesus!
