Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by! Let me tell you just a bit about myself . . .
I've been married to Wes, my high-school-sweetheart preacher-husband, for over 30 years, and we have three adult children. I was saved in 1993, after being raised in church and hoping I was saved. On March 8th of that year, I truly trusted Christ completely for my salvation for the first time in my life.
Our older son, Samuel, is 27 and married to Juliana. They both graduated with Master's degrees from West Coast Baptist College, where Sam is currently teaching speech and Bible courses; Juliana teaches 2nd grade at Lancaster Baptist School. Last fall, Samuel and Juliana made us grandparents: Emma Janette was born October 7th, and immediately captured our hearts! Sam and Juliana will begin deputation to go to New Zealand in September, 2016.
Our younger son is Andrew, age 25 and single. He's a graphic design whiz for the Antelope Valley Press in Lancaster, CA. Andrew graduated from West Coast Baptist College in 2013. He's a devoted "big brother" and mentor to DayDay and Gideon, both of whom he met while working in the bus ministry at LBC. Andrew loves making a difference in people's lives, and he has definitely done that for these two boys. He has a heart of compassion and lives that out in his daily life.
Our youngest child is our only daughter, Beth. She's 22 and a graduate of West Coast Baptist College. She's the high school history and social studies teacher at First Baptist School of Rosemount, MN. Beth took a mission trip to Uganda in January, 2015, and has the desire to return to Uganda as a missionary. We're excited to see what God does in her life in the next few years!
