I was raised in a believing family and was introduced to the Lord at an early age. When I was 4 I became aware that I needed someone to save me from my sinfulness. I asked my mom how I could be saved from my sin and she shared the gospel with me. I prayed with all the understanding of my little four year old heart that God would forgive me and make me His. Everything since then has been one mercy after another. God has poured out his goodness and shown Himself to be faithful over and over, even when I have been faithless. The overwhelming kindness and richness of His love are more than I deserve or could have ever asked for.
I have been married to my favorite guy in the world, Matt Smith, since 1998, and we have three AMAZING kids! Maddy (2000) graduated from Master's University in 2020 and is a musician and teacher in piano, voice, and ukulele. Hudson (2002) is pursuing a business degree as well as a career in firefighting, and Hayden (2005) will be graduating from High School in 2020.
I enjoy getting to play in worship with my family, refinishing furniture, cooking, camping, and watching Surivior!
As for the body of Christ, I would love to see us continue to grow in our love for each other and for the lost around us. Ultimately I want us to be a church that brings glory and honor to His name in ALL that we do!! My favorite Bible verse is Rom 5:8 - "but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
