About Me

I was raised in a christian home but I made my personal decision to receive God’s forgiveness for my sin at 10 years old. Since then I have experienced God’s love, mercy and grace repeatedly!  My faith grows more with each year.  God Is Good; All the Time.

I received a Bachelor Degree from Crown College, MN.  Upon graduation, I worked as Assistant Director at a local Daycare, while “putting-hubby-through” college.  Upon his graduation, we (my husband Rob & I) moved to southern CA.  There I taught 5th graders for 4 yrs.  Eventually, God led us back to the Midwest, to Lincoln, NE in ‘94.  He also allowed us to parent 2 awesome sons.  Both LCS alums.  We are grateful for the education they received at LCS!

Our sons are now married, with children!  Where did the time go?  We have 2 wonderful daughters-in-law and 3 beautiful grandchildren!  We are empty-nesters now and enjoying our time together.  We LOVE our roles as Nana & Papa!  God has always had His Hand on my life and I’m SO GRATEFUL!  I look forward to how He will continue to grow me!
