Jim and I have been married 52 years and have three children and seven grandchildren. Chris, our son, and our daughter Laura live in St Louis with their children. Matt and his family are in Chicago. We have been here at Concord since 11/22/1992. Our daughter Laura started third grade in the Children’s Department with Tommie Bowen and Ellen Kreinkamp as the leaders. The kindness, Christian, Bible-based teaching kept us here. The Children’s Ministry leaders mentored my future teaching and service in the Children’s Department. It is such a blessing to have these godly women in our lives. I LOVE the people at Concord Church, their commitment to service and Bible-based instruction. I have developed many longtime relationships with like-minded people and am blessed to have them in my life. It is an honor to be a part of this family of believers.
I currently serve on the Advisory Council as Secretary. I have been humbled and honored to serve in the leadership of Concord. I have seen how this board contributes to the ministries and purposes of Concord. I feel my voice has been a part of the many important decisions to move Concord forward in challenging times. An important Bible verse to me is Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding: In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
