About Us

My Faith

 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope an a future."  Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

This is my favorite verse in the bible, one I find comfort in when I wonder why life is heading in its sometimes perplexing direction.  I was raised in the United Methodist Church from the time I was a child until the present and I have many great memories of services with my grandparents, of Sunday dinners after church and of one of the best childhoods a person could be blessed to have.  My love of faith and family go hand-in-hand and is a great inspiration for my Faithbook project.

My Creative Background

 

All throughout my life, creativity has been such a part of who I am.  I still remember one of my favorite Christmas presents from my aunt: a cardboard box full of construction paper, markers, pens, paints and glue.  I learned so much from that box and a Childcraft Make and Do book my wonderful mother purchased for me and I truly think this sparked the gift of creativity the Lord gave me.  

Since then, I have learned to sew, quilt, scrapbook, journal, have began learning about book making and have been a part-time professional photographer with my own portrait studio.  Creating is like oxygen and I believe using my creativity is how I serve God best; creativity is my ministry.

My Education

I am a firm believer in education; it can change the course of your life.  I have a Certificate in Paralegal Studies, an Associate of Science in Middle School Education, a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies and a Master of Education in Higher Education Administration.
