I was born and raised on a Christian farm in Brainerd. I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters, almost all of them older than me. Every Sunday our family went to a small country church and that is where I asked Jesus into my heart. I was surprised when the pastor said I had to ask Him in, as I thought He was already there. My mother made sure you used the gifts God gave you so when a piano player was needed for Sunday School, there I was. It stood me in good stead because piano playing still is an activity I enjoy very much.
Once I had my own family, we were looking for a church that was authentic and real. What could be more real than a church where jeans were welcome! During one of those church services, there was an advertisement for a bookkeeper, just part time. My heart just jumped! I had always longed to work in a church environment and this position offered that along with working with numbers which I have always enjoyed. Now I have been here over 10 years and have learned so much. Thank you TJN!
