I grew up in Alameda, California and was raised in a Christian home. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at a young age. My husband Gerard and I moved from California to Iowa when Gerard got a fellowship to attend Iowa State for his Phd. We had two boys, Nathan & Matthew, when we were living in Iowa. Upon graduation Gerard accepted a job at K-State so that brought us here to Manhattan. When we moved here it was the first time we had to “shop” for a church because there wasn’t a church in the same denomination that we grew up in here in Manhattan. That turned out to be a big blessing, we felt the Holy Spirit’s presence when we attended Faith for the first time and have been blessed to be a part of Faith. When my youngest started kindergarten I started to work at Faith and our church office was located at South Wind Place at that time. I love working at Faith. When I’m not working you might find me knitting, sewing, getting together with friends or going to the gym.
