One of my earliest memories is of Pastor Pope offering me a stick of Juicy Fruit gum or a DumDum lollipop if I would walk with him and listen to him tell me about Jesus and how important it is for me to know him, love him, serve him, and know him as my Lord and Savior. Even though my parents walked away from the church, that early sweet but tangible connection to Jesus strongly influenced my life. Later, I would study journalism and eventually graduate with a BA in English from the University of Michigan. Tom and I were married in 1989. Shortly after, God called me out of newspaper publishing and writing and into service in children's ministries in churches in Michigan and Illinois. When Tom's job brought us to Georgia in 2021, we were happy to find our new home and family at Mount Paran North. I am delighted to join the North Kids staff as Early Childhood Coordinator in 2022. Two of our adult children, Cynthia and Cat, have joined us in Marietta, while our son Luke lives in Michigan.
