My Story

I was raised in a Christian family that valued weekly worship and serving in the church. When I went off to college, I wandered away from church and from God. I moved to St. Louis in 1991, and met my husband, Michael. We were married in 1994. After we had our first child, we felt a pull to return to church. We attended the nearby church “religiously”, but felt that something was missing. We ventured outside our comfort zone and discovered Faith in 2001. We immediately felt welcomed, and it quickly became our home. Faith is where I learned that I could have a relationship with God and that the Love of His Son is not conditional on the things that I do, but on who I am—His Child.

In the Spring of 2008, I started volunteering in the church office, helping with VBS needs. Within a short time, an administrative assistant position became available, and I joined the staff part-time. I have been blessed by this opportunity to share my gifts with the rest of the team and have enjoyed every minute. My position consistently evolves and has challenged me to take on more leadership roles and gain new skills.

Michael and I have been married for 22 years and have 3 children, Addy (17), Joe (14), and Jack (10). We have 3 cats- Macy, Mei, and a kitten yet to be named. I enjoy garage sales, thrift stores, and bargain hunting in general. I belong to a Bible Study that meets on Sunday mornings at Faith (Come join us at 9:15 a.m.!!), and the Families for Families Faith Community. I participated in and facilitated The Rooted Experience in 2016 and look forward to watching many more people “get rooted”!! God’s abundant blessings to you!
