I am a super outgoing, fun loving mother of 4 beautiful boys who I also home school. I am married to my very best friend and my soul mate since 2004 and I have been on one crazy adventure we call life for 32 years now. I am happy to share all about it but I don’t have enough space here so, feel free to ask and we can go to coffee. Here is the very short version.
I grew up in Vancouver, WA with my amazing family and church where I was heavily involved. I never thought I would move out of the greater Portland area till Tim and I felt God leading us to move to NE Tacoma in September of 2008, we were moving close to Tim’s family and the church he had attended at a teen so it made it a little easier as this was very hard for me who had always been close to my family and friends.
In August of 2009 we felt the Lord directing us to move to Lake Forest Park where we began to look for a new church home. My sister who also lived with us, had a good friend who attended Canyon Creek, so we checked out this very site you are now looking at and thought that these people seem so genuine and real, like us! So we decided to check it out, when we walked through the door we all knew that this was home. We have been involved in and loving Canyon Creek ever since. I have never been at such a real, relevant, relational, reproductive and rousing church in all of my life (and I grew up in church).
June 2012 Tim and I purchased our first home in the City of Snohomish (I know further north again) but, we plan on staying here for the rest of our lives. All that to say your stuck with me, I’m all in and I couldn’t be more thrilled to say that. We truly are HOME!
I have a deep love for God’s women and His people and am so blessed to serve here at Canyon Creek. We truly are just as real as we seem and always have room for more friends who we hope will also become family.
