“I have had the privilege of coming along side people by praying, crying, listening, laughing, talking, and counseling with many people throughout my life. I have been married to my best friend for 26 years. We have two adult children, a son-in-law, two dogs, and two cats. My passions are to seek truth, teach and equip others to have an intimate relationship with their Savior, partner with the Holy Spirit to set captives free, enjoying and hiking beautiful Colorado, quilting and simply anything that includes my friends and family.”

Favorite Quote: “The Spirit of the sovereign LORD is upon me, because the Lord has appointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort brokenhearted and to account that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell whose who mourn that the time of Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn Israel, He will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair. For the Lord has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.”
