I have been married to my husband, David, for 31 years, and we are the parents of three children: Michael, his wife Alison, grandson Oliver, and daughters Emily and Ellen.
I grew up in a Christian home, and professed my trust in Jesus at the age of 12. I realized then that I was a sinner, and the only way to salvation was to fully trust Him and put my faith in Him. During my college years I became disconnected from regular church attendance, and wasn’t letting God lead my life.
After David and I started dating, we realized that we had grown up with very similar backgrounds. We had been married for four years, and after we had our first child, we realized that we needed to find a church home. We wanted to find ministries to be involved in, to have a place to help us teach our children, and to have a place for them to learn and become faithful in their own walks with Christ.
Milwood has been that place for us. We joined in 1988, and have been incredibly blessed to serve God here, be involved in different ministries, and the be a part of the fellowship and friendships over these years.
