Birthday: January 15

In Ministry Since: I have been a member at Cottonwood for 22 years.  Served as Women’s Minister for 7 years and have now been serving as Marriage Minister for almost 3 years.  I feel very privileged and called to serve in these areas of ministry.

Favorite Scripture: Ephesians 3:20  Now to Him who is able to do abundantly and exceedingly more than we can think or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

I came to love this scripture during a very difficult struggle in our family. I drew near to God in a way that was deeper than I ever had before. He blessed me with incredible strength, peace and comfort to stay the course while He fought the battle for our family. I still had moments and days when it was difficult, but spending a great deal of time in prayer allowed me to sense His deep love in such a fresh, new way. I felt His powerful presence and protection with me and our family.

It was during this time that I was drawn to begin praying His word back to him in the areas where I was crying out for help and understanding. Praying His word gave me such comfort and such incredible peace.  My relationship with the Lord grew exponentially during this time.  It was difficult, but also one of the richest blessings in the way that I came to know Him. I came to know Him better, and learned to depend on Him at a level I had never experienced before.

I encourage everyone to invest in their prayer life and try praying God’s word back to him in all your areas of need. He honors this, and He will bless it!

God was pouring into my life all along, I only became keenly aware of it, when I drew near to Him with an intimacy that I had never entered into before that time.
