When you are young, you never think about how blessed of a life you have. Everything in your life is taken for granted! Then you become an adult and realize that your seemingly perfect childhood was a huge blessing from God. I grew up in a loving, hugging, kissing, “I love you” saying, Christian home. I went to Christian school and a great church where I learned so much about God. I remember being five years old and being kept awake by the feeling that I wasn’t going to go to heaven. One night, I called out for my mom, and she helped me to ask Jesus in my heart right there beside my bed.
As I got older, I realized I really wasn’t living for God the way I should be. Sure, I was going to church and doing all the things my parents wanted me to do, but I just didn’t have a real relationship with Him. It wasn’t until I went to college, during my freshman year, that God revealed Himself to me in a season of my life when I really needed Him. I haven’t been the same since.
I am so pumped to be on staff at LCC. I LOVE this church and everybody in it! It is such a blessing to get to work somewhere that you love. My life’s greatest blessings, though, are my family. I have an amazing husband, Mick, who is my perfect match! He is strong where I am weak, and he keeps me settled when I get too “excited,” as I like to call it. We met in college and have been married since 2005. We have two incredible boys, Hudson and Tucker. They could not be more like Mick and me, and we wouldn’t want it any other way!
My hope for LCC is that we would be a shining light in our community while everything around us seems to be growing dimmer every day. I pray that we can be a place where people feel free to come and to be comfortable being themselves, to show their weaknesses so God can show His strength.
