Scott and I were married in Palmyra, Pennsylvania on May 31, 1986. Our oldest son Nick lives with his wife, Chelsea, outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Our son Luke and his wife, Hope, live in the valley and our son, Chris, lives in California. Having spent the first 33+ years of my life in Pennsylvania, it will always be a huge part of who I am; whether it’s my Pennsylvania Dutch heritage or my passion for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I grew up in the church, learning from my earliest years about my sin and need for a Savior. I gave my life to Christ at a young age and grew slowly in my faith throughout my childhood.
After moving to Arizona in 1998 with my husband and two young boys, we found Redemption Gilbert (then East Valley Bible Church). EVBC and specifically the teaching of Pastor Tom Shrader were the vehicles God used to grow my faith deep, to see His sovereignty and experience His hand weaving all parts of my life together for His glory and for my good.
