I grew up in Southlake, Texas and had the gift of hearing and believing the truths about Jesus at a young age. Now looking back, I think this is part of the reason I love teaching kids about Jesus. God used Pine Cove’s family camp as a valuable instrument in teaching me more about not simply following a list of rules but pursuing a relationship with Jesus. Throughout college and grad school, I had the opportunity to serve during summers and developed a joy for partnering with families to invest in the next generations.
I graduated from Texas A&M in 2014, and then stayed in College Station to teach second grade for two years. I have also had the opportunity to lead preschool ministries at two different churches. During these experiences, I fell in love with teaching the Bible to children. The Lord then opened up a way for me to be better equipped to teach Scripture, and I moved to the area to go to Dallas Theological Seminary.
I love remembering and reminding others of the truth found in Colossians 2:6-7 “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Through this truth, I am reminded that the gospel is not about what I have done, but in remembering who He is and what He has done. When I get the chance, I love talking about these truths over a good cup of coffee, spending time outside and exploring national parks, or trying to make something new in the kitchen with a friend.
