Born in:

Estevan, Saskatchewan    

Current Location:

Surrey, BC

 

Current Life: 

Part time EA, Pacific Academy Middle School. I'm also a wife to a youth pastor and mother to 2 rowdy little boys.

 

Credentials: 

Studied at the University of Regina in the Faculty of Education. Went on to serve at an orphanage in Mexico for a year. Now, since my husband is a youth pastor, I have the privilege of building relationships with our girls there; leaders as well as youth.

 

I became a Christian when…

I grew up in a home with parents who have done their best to be excellent Christian examples to my brother and myself. I realized as I got older that life not only WAS different for them than others but it also FELT different than people not living for the Lord. Realizing this for myself changed everything in my pursuit for God.

 

A few of my favourite things: 

The colour pink, anything crafty, gummy candies, and any music that I can dance ridiculously to with my boys

 

What I would say to my teenage self:

“You don't need to wait for God to come up with an exciting plan for your life. He is waiting for you to accept His gifts that He has placed in each of us individually. Gifts that are beautiful and exciting but we need to choose to unwrap them “

 

A Bible verse I love:

Jeremiah 29:11 

“For I know the plans I have for you” says the Lord “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future”.

It's a constant reminder that there is absolutely NOTHING the world could offer me that could ever come close to what God has equipped me to live for and accomplish.
