About Me

I asked Jesus to forgive my sins and come into my heart when I was 5 years old.  My dad was a pastor and I grew up in the church learning who I was in Christ.  I rededicated my life to Jesus Christ at summer camp when I was in high school.

Philippians 1:6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. 

While attending college I met my husband and during my sophomore year experienced Jesus in a new way.  Jesus was mine.  Not just my families.  Mine.  After graduation, I married Rev. Brian Malvig.  We were called into ministry and God has directed us to 6 different ministries.  We learned and grew at each place God sent us.  Then God called us back to Lincoln.  We are blessed to have 4 children…

Hannah is 21 – Majoring in International Relations with a journalism minor.

Ethan is 19 – Majoring in Bible/Theology with a music minor. He is studying abroad at Tokyo Christian University in Tokyo, Japan.

Lydia & Elizabeth are 18 – Seniors at LCS.

I believe parenting is a responsibility given by God and I am looking forward to partnering with parents in the education of their children.  I am also excited to welcome more precious children into the Academy class here at Lincoln Christian School this year.

Philosophy of Education

My educational philosophy is centered around the love of Jesus Christ. I believe learning to occur when the students know they are safe and loved.  My goal is to provide an environment that provides each child with both safety and love.  “I love because He (Jesus) first loved me.” 1 John 4:19

My goal is to model Christ’s love for each child and do my best to facilitate learning in the classroom.  I will also come alongside parents to help each student in achieving their learning goals.
