I grew up on the front row of church but my journey really began the day I stopped trying to build my own life and surrendered it all to Jesus.
Jesus met me right where I was at, but I’m so glad he didn’t leave me there. With kindness, he took me firmly by the hand and led me into radical life change. (one of my favorite bible quotes from Romans 2:4 MSG) There were fears to overcome, insecurities to let go of and healing that needed to take place, but he walked me faithfully through it all.
I believe in this one simple truth… Jesus can change your life.
Ever since I was a little girl sitting in church, listening to my dad preach, I somehow knew that I was wired just like him. I didn’t know how or when, but I knew that someday I would follow in his footsteps.
But life doesn’t always play out the way we think it will.
I spent 15 years at home raising my 4 kids and supporting my husband as he and his brothers built their family farming business. But my heart was restless and longing for something more.
Once my kids were in school I stepped into a Pastoral role and I’ve never looked back. I love walking alongside people in their journey of faith, helping them discover their God-given purpose, and release their passion for serving others within the church family and the local community.
It hasn’t always been an easy journey. There were fears to overcome, insecurities to let go of and some healing from my past that needed to take place… and I’m sure there are still more adventures to come.
I love sharing my personal stories of what I’ve encountered along the way and how I learned to really live out my faith in life and leadership. I currently serve as a Teaching Pastor at Mountain Park Church in Niagara Falls, Canada.
