I hail from Hamilton, Michigan — what I call the “deep South” of Grand Rapids. God placed me there and grew in me a love for families, plants, children, the sky, music, people, stories, and all things life-giving. My Lord Jesus has given me abundant life, and I live to invite others into that same fuller life.
I have been around the West Side just over two years now, and the neighbors and friends who live here are dear to me. Nothing excites me more than seeing them take positive steps toward Jesus and accepting His love and lordship. It is an honor that I get to guide and support the BSHOP’s mission school students as they grow in faith, learn how to live in healthy community, and serve the mission of God in this neighborhood. They are discovering and then bringing the abundant life of Jesus, and I am blessed to be a part of that journey.
