On Her Call to Ministry:

“I have a love for the Lord and for the people God puts in my path through recreation. Team sports are an effective way to bring people together to laugh and cheer each other on. It often opens up the door for me to encourage and minister to people who are hurting and share the love of God with them. It is a joy to do team devotions and to see people praying for each other.”
