Hi Friends! Here's a little bit about how Jesus has wired me for life and ministry.
My personal mission statement is:
'to listen, learn and love with the heart and mind of Christ and teach others to do the same.'
I graduated from Emmaus Bible College with a BA in Biblical Studies and an emphasis in youth ministry. Shortly after moving back home to Canada, I co-founded CrossTrainers Canada with one of my best friends (Patti LaRose) in 2001 at the age of 22 (what was Jesus thinking?!) I was blessed to serve as CrossTrainers' Executive Director for 19 years in Bradford Ontario. Although I am no longer serving the LORD in this role my heart beat remains intimately connected with their mission 'Training people to live, love and lead for the glory of God.'
Some of my favourite things include walking or hiking with Jesus and other close friends, campfires and sunsets. You'll often find me drinking a warm beverage and laughing with friends or treasure hunting at thrift stores. I enjoy road trips and singing my favourite worship or country music loud and off key. Although my hair is most often up and I throw like a boy, my love for deep friendships and sensitive heart are unmistakenly that of a woman. Above all, my passion is Jesus. He is my everything. The most powerful tool He has used to teach me more about His heart, is His Word. I believe the Word of God is the sword of the Spirit and is most effective when He wields it. My prayer is that the Spirit would use my life and voice, to speak His message, His way for His glory.
