Share your heart for the area of ministry you are currently leading?
I love getting to know people and hearing about their lives. I want everyone to belong at Abundant Life not just attend. My heart is for making each person feel they are cared for and supported. I want to build relationships within our church community and serve the Lord as He leads me.
Jeff and I currently serve in children's ministry and are a part of the greeting ministry. I also serve on the decor team and refresh women's ministry bible study and event planning. When we "officially" became members of the church we knew we wanted to belong so we jumped in to serving.
How long have you been at Abundant Life?
We have been attending Abundant Life since the end of 2019.
Tell us a little about your family...
Jeff and I have been married since July 1988. We have 3 children - Ricky, Courtney, and Garrett. 2 bonus kids - son in law, Brandon and daughter in law, Michaela. 3 grandchildren - Willow, Kannon and Evelyn. We love spending time with our family and playing with our grandchildren. Being Poppy and Gigi is the best blessing. We have been so blessed by our church family and enjoy the time we get to spend with them outside of church too.
What are you passionate about?
I love helping others and letting them know they are loved, seen and heard. I love sharing about Jesus and inviting people to our church, bible studies or anything that gets them wanting to have a relationship with him. And flowers, I love flowers. Working out in my yard while listening to worship music is a good day for me.
