Children's Ministry Admin Assistant
I am so blessed to get to be the Children’s Ministry Administrative Assistant at not only an amazing church but truly a place that is staffed with some of the most wonderful and talented people I’ve ever met! I came on board here in January of 2016 and hope I get to stay for a lifetime. Prior to Northwest, I worked at the Shelton School for 10 years as the Testing Coordinator for children in grades 3 through 5 with learning differences. I had planned to return to work at Shelton after the birth of my child, but I had no idea how much I would love and treasure being a mom, that I just had no choice but to stay at home. That’s a decision I’ll never regret!
I am saved by grace through faith and made the decision to accept Christ at the age of nine during my fourth grade year at a private Christian school. I will be forever thankful that my parents invested their resources into providing a Christian school environment. My life was sharpened daily by my Christian teachers through the freedom to learn about God whether it be Bible or English class. Through the years, I have sought after Him through Bible Studies, weekly mentor meetings with older Christian women, served in Campus Crusade for Christ at Southern Methodist University and led the women’s Bible Study at the Chi Omega Sorority house.
My absolute favorite person in the world is my husband, Rob! We love to go boot scootin’ anywhere that will play good ole’ country music, swim in our heated pool year round, laugh until we can’t stop and love the heck out of our two kids, ages 15 and age 5. I enjoy running and cooking, but those don’t compare to the joy I receive as a wife and mom. My life verse has always been Nahum 1:7 – The Lord is good. He is a safe place in times of trouble and He cares for those who trust in Him. But once my dad received the diagnosis of ALS 6 years ago, my life verse became Romans 15:13 - May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is, after all, our only hope.
