My name is Mitzi Valdez! Born in Beaverton, Oregon, raised on the Big Island of Hawaii and transplanted in 2001 to Leander, Texas! I am wife to my husband Randy (May of 2019!) and a dog mama to our two little critters Amos and Shelby. I was first introduced to the idea of a relationship with the Lord in 2013 while attending Prairie View A&M University College of Nursing. Little did I know at that time what a true relationship with God really meant. The Lord brought me to Dallas, Texas in 2017 for a job as a surgical recovery nurse. I found myself at Watermark after a bad breakup and a google search! My story with Watermark began in 2017 after attending a Sunday service, I was completely wrecked and realized my desperate need for a Savior. It was at that point that I jumped two feet in, plugging into community, living authentically and realizing the true meaning of God’s incredible grace and mercy for my life. After traveling to Haiti with the Watermark Young Adults Team, I decided to declare my commitment to a relationship with the Lord, at our large May Baptism! It was all up from there folks! Shortly after I met my husband Randy, began running harder with the Lord and realizing that nursing was no longer where my heart lay. After a year and a half of prayer and discernment, I stepped out of a 5 year nursing career to step into ministry. It has been a complete blessing to submit our lives to the Lord, and to serve His people through ministry work. Working in the marriage ministry has been an amazing reminder of God’s love for the church.. and His love for us, personified through the covenant of marriage. I am so excited to serve you all and to be recklessly sold OUT for God’s Kingdom!
