When I was 20, newly married with a newborn baby, I had a constant fear of death. One day while I was driving with my dad, I started to tell him that I knew that if I died I was going to hell. He pulled the truck over at the gravel pile between Stead and Red Rock and proceeded to tell me that it was Jesus Christ that I needed. He prayed with me and that day that Jesus became real to me and I accepted Christ.
I believe that The Lord is calling me to minister in new and different ways. I don’t feel that God has released me from the call of discipleship in Mcdermitt as of yet.

I have two children that also support the ministries I've taken on.
I like all kinds of music including contemporary Christian and Christian rap. Casting Crowns, Lecrae, Tenth Avenue North are some of the artists I listen to.
