    Favorite Bible Verse:  1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (Love is patient and kind; love does not boast; it is not arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.  As for prophecies; they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.)  
    Why: It was a reading at my husband Aaron and I's wedding ceremony and also in our vows we made to one another.

    Favorite Thing about working in Children's Ministry:  There are so many special moments in Children's ministry. My favorite would have to be seeing the pure joy in children's eyes when they are learning about Jesus! There is this look of amazement in their eyes when you relate the love Jesus has for us to them that never gets old. I also enjoy seeing the look of excitement on parents face when they see that their child(ren) have a safe and fun place to learn about Jesus!
