I grew up in northwestern North Dakota in oil boom country. I now live in Sioux Falls, SD, with my husband, Benjamin. We enjoy the outdoors together, taking hikes, walking trails, and taking pictures of God’s beautiful nature.
2 Peter 1:3. “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” This is one of my life verses that often reminds me the Lord has provided ALL I need to live day-by-day for Him.
I started working as a preteen by babysitting. In high school I worked as a waitress and a clerk at a gift shop and pharmacy. My first job after graduating from college was as a case manager for a Family Service Agency that was a maternity home, adoption agency, and children’s home.
I enjoy reading, baking, hiking, music, and time with friends in my free time.
Bucket List Item
I enjoy traveling, so there are several places I’d love to visit someday: England, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, and Israel are at the top of my list.
I love almost anywhere with mountains. Glacier National Park (MT) and Pikes Peak (CO) have been a couple of my favorites.
Person I’d Like to Meet
I’d really enjoy meeting Barnabas from the book of Acts. I appreciate how he was such a source of encouragement to the early church. He is not mentioned often, but when he is, his character shines through.
