I began working at Grace Lutheran preschool in 1985 as an aide and for the church as the financial secretary in 1994. I love the sense of community and outreach that this church has become. We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ and I see that in so many ways. My husband Andy and I were married here at Grace in 1977. We were raised in Loves Park but we moved to St. Paul, Minnesota following our wedding. We moved back to this area in 1981 and have been at this church since that time. We are blessed with our sons, Jim and Mike, their wives (who are now our daughters) Julie and Amber and seven wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy cooking, bowling, laughter, going for relaxing rides on our pontoon, Cub and Bear games and especially time spent with our family and friends. Thank you for the opportunity to serve on this staff. God has filled my life with so much goodness. For that, I give thanks.
