Since moving from Dallas, Texas to Atlanta in 2001, The Church of The Apostles has been an anchor of support for me and has ministered to my family in countless ways. It brings me great joy to walk alongside women in their journey with Christ and to help them experience His love regardless of their season in life or underlying circumstances. It is a beautiful gift to have the opportunity to celebrate the process of ladies discovering, developing, and expressing their gifts in community.

I entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as a young teenager. My husband, Tom, and I married in 1982. We have three adult children and a new son-in-law.

The desire of my heart is to serve women, to encourage them, and to provide opportunities for them to grow and experience Christ as their most precious treasure. Women are designed to inspire, influence, and champion the cause of the kingdom of God with beauty, strength, grace, and wisdom in our culture. By fostering an environment that invites intimate, authentic community, the church can create a safe place that equips and supports women in their endeavor to impact and influence others in their own spheres. I am both grateful and humbled by the opportunity to serve the Lord in this capacity.

What a blessing to be called to do something I have done all my life: work with women and use my God-given gift of organization in planning events and special projects that will glorify the Lord.  It is a privilege to join The Church of The Apostles staff in the position of Event Coordinator for Women’s Ministry. Women are relational and enjoy getting together to fellowship with one another. It is my heart’s desire to see women grow in their faith and their walk through opportunities that draw them closer to Christ. I look forward to serving the unique needs of women at the various stages of their Christian lives through ministries such as the Widow’s Network, Quilting for Christ, Single Moms, Single Hearts, and ministries to the next generation.

I have been blessed to be married since 1980 to David, my high school sweetheart. We have lived in Marietta, GA since 1988, where we raised our children, Lauren and Stephen.

Following and serving the Lord is always an adventure!  Since becoming a follower of Christ as a young child, God has given me amazing opportunities to know Him more through Bible study, my marriage to my godly husband, Steve, parenting our daughter Elisabeth, Christian community, and involvement in the work of His Kingdom locally and around the world.

I am grateful for this gift of serving the women at Apostles by coordinating Bible studies, outreach, and mentoring.  My vision is that we will become more like Christ, serving Him with gladness and sharing Him with others in word and deed, for His glory and for our joy.
