I have been very blessed to have been raised by Godly parents who encouraged me to dream big and experience life to the fullest. I have a degree in Business Administration and have been able to travel the world. I have worked for several wonderful companies including LaFarge and Cessna.
I have served with Mercy Ships, which has given me much insight into our world. I would encourage everyone, no matter what age you are, to donate your time and resources to this phenomenal ministry. I was able to visit many ports in Europe and Africa, while living with people from all over the world.
I’ve had the thrill of getting my private pilot’s license, and the satisfaction of using a jackhammer. I’ve also found myself running with the bulls in Spain, and checking the shark nets in South Africa. My latest adventures are raising six kids and homeschooling them along with my amazing husband, Jim. This is not for the faint of heart! I am so grateful for the privilege and opportunity to do this. It has been my greatest blessing.
I have also been extremely grateful to have been providing Cross Seven as a resource for families. It has been a blessing to know that this website is providing many homeschoolers with an excellent resource at a reasonable price. I am extremely grateful for Claritas Publishing and their incredible diligence to create this musical memory work.
I teach the memory work class to my local homeschool co-op called Central Homeschool Family Ministries. I have been working with students for the past 10 years. My youngest is still in grade school, so I still have several years to go. Then who knows, what if grandchildren start becoming a part of my life?!?!
I spend a lot of time volunteering with Kansas Home Educators. They provide so many incredible resources for homeschoolers. I have loved getting to know and working with true homeschool heroes.
A new adventure has been to work with the staff children at NewSpring church. It is a Bible believing fellowship, and our purpose is to help people make an eternal connection with Jesus Christ and with others in order to grow strong to produce fruit for the kingdom of God. Our strategy is to accomplish this by creating joyful, relevant, irresistible environments led by skilled staff and dedicated volunteers.
One last note is that I have two children in college. They will be graduating in the year to come. So many wonderful things have happened throughout the years, and it’s all come about because of our family’s decision to follow God and homeschool our kids! It is the toughest job I’ll ever love!
