Personal Testimony & Information
 
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to procalim libery to the captives, the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to grant those who mourn in Zion - to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified." (Isaiah 61:1-3)
God has placed me in the education system and on the mission field so I can proclaim His freedom and Truth to children and youth. Coaching, teaching, and traveling to other countries is a melding of what I love to do and the call of God on my life. It is in those arenas that I am able to build relationships in order to share the freedom Christ has given us in Him. When I am not on the softball field or travleing abroad, I love spending time with my family in Illinois during the summers and over the holidays.
