She can’t get enough of following Jesus on various adventures from her Bakersfield California home to Ireland, Texas, Hungary, and back again. Through 30 years of marriage, 4 kids, multiple callings, she has focused on encouraging and loving the least of these. Bringing hope for the hopeless, loving the forgotten, and touching the sick in Jesus' Name is who she is.
