If you had to sum up your responsibilities at Grace in one sentence, what would it be?

The glue that keeps the Connection Team together and working smoothly so all spinning plates spin cohesively.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Life is too short, so live it to the fullest.  Love lots, laugh loudly and live for Jesus whole-heartedly.

What do you do for fun?

Travel, read and spend time with my children and grandchildren.

What is one verse from the Bible by which you try to live your life?

Philippians 1:9-11. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.

What is your favorite movie?
