I am so excited for this opportunity to serve you at EBC!!! Starting in the fall of 2009, I have been faithfully attending EBC (except while living in Toledo for a year - the commute was a little too far). I have loved being able to watch so many of our kids grow up from a far and am excited to have a more direct part in helping them grow into grace-followers. To help you get to know me a little bit more, I want to share with you some of my background. I have worked with kids since I was twelve. My parents' cultivated in me a desire to serve others. Some of the avenues I have served with kids in include a summer camp (called Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp or P-HOC - I talk about it a lot!), after-school ministries, teaching, and nursery. My husband, Jonathan, and I have been married for almost three years. We have one son named Levi who turned one in August. We are praying that we will be moving back to Xenia by the middle of November. I am looking forward to living in-town after currently living 25 minutes away. I am looking forward to working with parents and fellow childcare workers over the next few months to just learn how God has been working at EBC and how He might use me in this new role. Thank you so much for your support over the past month! It has been so invaluable! God bless and go in God's grace and peace throughout your day!
