I am a former active duty army officer turned stay at home mom to three amazing and energetic little boys. I absolutely love to spend time with my wonderful husband and my boys, as well as with extended family and friends. Hiking, biking, and jogging also top my list of favorite things to do; which is good because eating chocolate and drinking hot cocoa throughout the long Minnesota winters are also right up there! While I love spending time with my family and eating chocolate, my passion is to encourage others to grow in their faith in Jesus and to live out the purpose that He has for them. I know firsthand how Jesus Christ alone can transform a life and nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing others come to know Him and grow in their relationship with Him. For those seeking more formal information, I hold a master’s degree in theological studies and am currently pursing a master’s degree in strategic leadership.
