In 25 words or so, describe what you do at St.John's :
I have the absolute joy and privilege to develop, direct, facilitate and/or implement various events, activities, programs and opportunities for children from birth through 6th grade and their families to Connect to God and His people in Worship, Grow together in God’s Word through life groups and Share Christ with their words, service and resources.

Tell us a story of how you have seen God moving through your ministry :
Some of the things I absolutely LOVE about my job are the “God sightings” we get to witness and hear about from the children and families we serve. A few of my favorites: A one-and-a-half year old who recently started attending our “Seedlings” life group for toddlers and subsequently taught her family to pray before meals; 3rd grade cousins who brought their 1st grade cousin to visit Sunday school for the first time and stayed to help him adjust to the classroom instead of joining their friends; A student with an anxiety disorder transformed by the Spirit and leading worship; teenagers and young adults who were once served by Children’s Ministries back serving in Children’s Ministries.

Hobbies - Interests:
I'm a competitive ballroom dancer, Semi-pro beach lounger, I love to cook but I don't like to clean up afterwards!

Favorite Bible verse / Life Verse :
Romans 8:38-39

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." 

Favorite quote:

"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."

-John Wooden
