This will be my 5th year as Director at Sonshine Kids.  I have been married to my husband Chad for 15 years and we have two, beautiful girls; Ellie Jane is in 5th grade and Emrie is 1st. I love watching movies, Netflix shows, crafting, and most of all spending time with my family. 

I truly believe the most important thing you can teach a child is the love of Jesus Christ.  I find no greater joy than hearing kids talk and sing about His love.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9
