As a child, I experienced how impactful it can be for both parents and children to form positive relationships with adults who live for God, are honest, and are willing to come alongside them in their journey with Christ. After 10 years of teaching public school, God gave me the unexpected opportunity to use my skills and experiences here at Grace. Colossians 3:16 became my life verse: “Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.” God continues to mold me into the person He made me to be, and it is thrilling for me to be able to be a part of that happening in the families of Grace.
