When I became a Christian in Yosemite National Park in 1974, I knew I had found my true life’s purpose. Jesus was what I had been searching for all of my life. The more I know of Him, the hungrier I become.
From the beginning, I began studying, praying and seeking God. My life became a massive search for the knowledge of God and a deep relationship with Him. This search is still going on and has intensified. I know that all that He has provided belongs to me, and I won’t stop until I am living continually in His presence and enjoying highest and best in life!!!
Through the years I have belonged to Him, the Lord has taught me many things. I thank God that in accordance with His Word, He has continued to reveal Himself and His word to me. And as He commanded, I live to teach to others the things He has taught me. This is the purpose for my life and for this blog.
I attended Rhema Bible Training Center in 1977-1978 as a single person. I came back, got married, did various things at various churches, had my first child, then together as a family we returned to Tulsa for my husband to attend the first year of Rhema and both of us to attend the second year together. We graduated in 1984 and returned to California to help out at a church of some friend’s of ours in Concord, California. After two years there, we pastored The Church at Antioch from 1987-2003. From 2007 until October 2014 we were involved at a growing, thriving church full of God’s presence also located in Antioch. We learned so many things at all of these places the Lord sent us. Now we are reconnected with our roots and helping out at another Rhema pastor’s church in Pittsburg, CA. We are excited to see what the future holds.
Since 1982, I have been busy raising five sons, three of whom still live at home. Jonathan is my firstborn, born in 1982. He is working as a web programmer for a local web development company. He recently earned his fifth degree black belt in Okinawan Karate. He is a certified sensei. Daniel, my second son was born in 1985 while we were music directors and associates at the church in Concord, California. He is currently working in San Francisco as web designer/developer. Matthew, my third son, was born in 1988, about two years after we began to pastor The Church at Antioch. His goal is a career in food. He is working and attending college. In his spare time, you can hear him playing the drums.
Michael, my fourth son, was born in 1991 also while we were pastoring The Church at Antioch. He is attending college in San Diego. Timmy, my fifth son, was born in 1992. He is currently working and attending college. He is musical, extremely gifted at the piano and voice. He is starting to take students in music and voice.
I am looking forward to serving the Lord in whatever He may have for me next! I believe the best days ever are right before us! There are great adventures in God awaiting!!!
