I started going to church, the church my parents help start, at an early age of 5 or 6. I grew up in that small town, tiny church. I went to Sunday School, VBS, and youth group in that church. I even started to serve communion there when I was like 12 years old. My college and young adult years were spent going home to Meeker on the weekends and still attending Meeker Christian Church. When my parents moved to Grangeville I followed them, and we joined GCC. At GCC I’ve grown in my walk with Christ by teaching Sunday School, teaching at VBS, and helping with other deacon responsibilities. All of this and being married to a faithful Christian woman has led me to this eldership.
Favorite Verses: Ephesians 2:10 & Titis 2:10b
Hobbies: I’m a car guy who’s into his grandkids.

I have been blessed to be married to my husband Eric of seventeen years. Anyone who would take on four children, a dog, two cats and a mortgage is a brave soul; did I mention three of those kids were teenage BOYS at the time? They are grown, married and we have eleven of the most precious grandchildren ever. A few of my favorite words are Wife, Mom and Nana. I love my family at G.C.C. as well.

My favorite Bible verses: Ephesians 1:18-19 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe!
