I grew up around 15 minutes from here. My dad was a church planter back when it wasn’t called that. I spent a LOT of time at church when I was a kid and started singing up front when I was 7. I’ve been singing and playing piano ever since and love that I’m able to reflect Gods beauty and creativity in this way. My husband Joe and I have been a part of New Life since before we were married – around 30 years ago. We have 5 kids who have grown up and been loved by so many in this grace filled community.
I began this 2nd round as NLDs worship coordinator in 2010. I left the first time when I was 8 months pregnant with our twins, who have now graduated from high school! I see my role as worship director as being one that encourages and helps shape our corporate times of dialogue with our Creator. It’s incredible to think that He invites us actually commands us to do this and I’m humbled by the responsibility to lead in this way.
Here are a few things that I’m crazy about: my high school sweetheart husband, strong coffee, banter, the beach, my kids and hanging with friends at UJs.
