assisting children’s directorRod and I have been married since 1981. We have three really tall boys, three beautiful daughters-in-law, and an adorable grandson.
I was born and raised in Edmonds to Norwegian immigrant parents, but also lived in Hawaii, Norway and on our summer farm in Montana. Rod and I have lived in the South Everett/Mukilteo area since we married.
I am passionate about kids and want them all to know and love Jesus as I did. For the past 20 years, this has led me to lead local and global children’s ministry training and outreach, traveling to dozens of countries and working with remarkable leaders wanting to reach more of their children for Christ. During this time I have been an author and curriculum writer for several organizations.
I am currently completing a Master’s Degree in Holistic Child Development.
My husband and I enjoy the outdoors and are currently half-way through our bucket-list goal of visiting all 50 states and all National Parks of the USA in our small RV. I am also a knitting maniac. We especially love coffee, chocolate, a good book … and time with our family!
