I grew up just a little outside of Gilman, Minnesota, the fourth of nine children-- which means that I had at least three times as much fun as the average American child. What I love most about serving in music ministry is becoming an instrument through which the Father can speak to the hearts of His children. Some other things that bring me joy are: curling up with a cup of coffee/tea and a good book, going for walks, and swing dancing.
