  • Church Membership & Activities

    I attend First Baptist Church of Yorba Linda (where my husband is worship leader) and Calvary Chapel Chino Hills.

  • Community Service & Involvement

    I have served overseas through ISP in South and SouthEast Asia.

  • Interests & Hobbies

    "I am blessed enough to say that I am married to my best friend. My husband is my biggest supporter and I thank God for him daily. We traveled the country prior to having children and saw most of the United States. We have 3 beautiful daughters. We also have 1 large dog, a few small dogs, 2 cats and chickens."

  • Personal Philosophy

    "It is an honor to be given the opportunity to impart the knowledge I have with others. I feel it is my calling to teach and I love the adult learning atmosphere where student responsibility is so vital.

    God has blessed my life in countless ways and continues to do so daily. It is humbling to think that the God that spoke the universe into existence involves Himself in our daily lives and that He cares for us so much that He died for us.

    God Bless you in all that you do..."

    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    - Romans 6:23, NASB

    Climb Until Your Dream Comes True

    Often your tasks will be many,
    and more than you think you can do
    Often the road will be rugged
    and the hills insurmountable, too

    But always remember the hills ahead
    Are never as steep as they seem,
    And with faith in your heart start upward
    And climb 'till you reach your dream,

    For nothing in life that is worthy
    Is ever too hard to achieve
    If you have the courage to try it
    And you have the faith to believe...

    Faith is a force that is greater
    Than knowledge or power or skill
    And many defeats turn to triumph
    If you trust in God's wisdom and will

    Faith is a mover of mountains,
    There's nothing that God cannot do,
    So start out today with faith in your heart

    And Climb Until Your Dream Comes True.
