I met Jesus as a child in northern BC, where I grew up as a preacher’s kid. For the past 14 years I’ve been in full-time ministry to refugees, based in Kitchener. I’m a mom of 3 children and soon-to-be 7 grandchildren, who all give me much joy.

I started attending Lakeside in 2008, after my marriage ended. Lakeside is such a wonderful community in which to heal, to grow and to serve! I’m enjoying leading the prayer ministry at Lakeside Central.

My favourite verse is Roman 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
