More about me:
What I Believe
I believe in one God, existent in three persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That the Bible is the living Word of God and the source of all doctrine. It’s applicable today for training in righteousness, and we can trust what it says. I believe that Christ atoned for our sins through His death on the cross and He offers us the choice to receive Him as our personal Savior. Through salvation, we receiving forgiveness and Jesus makes a way for us to connect to the Father. I believe in the living presence, power, and fruit of the Holy Spirit, and the working of His gifts in the Church. I believe God calls and equips us to achieve maturity and unity in the faith, and to participate in His ministry as part of the Body of Christ.
I believe God wants a personal relationship with you. If you’re not sure if you have this connection with Him yet, He invites you to start today.

- After salvation, marriage is the best thing I’ve ever experienced. I’ve been married to Jared since 2008 God has taught me so much through our 12+ years of marriage that I wrote a book to encourage Christian wives (A Wife’s Secret to Happiness).
- I have two sons on earth and two babies in heaven, so delayed fertility and God’s goodness through it all is part of my life testimony. You can read about it here:
