I became involved with CEF seven years ago as a volunteer with the Western Row club. Our leader's circumstances required her to leave the ministry so although I was new, I had a choice of dropping the ministry or picking up where we left off. Praying through the situation God directed my paths to keep the ministry going. I was able to get other volunteers, namely my good friend, Janet Fairweather.
There are so many blessings with the club. Our hope is to bless the children but find they bless us considerably. I love to see their eagerness to learn and grow in God's word. Each class throughout the years has given me much encouragement. I plan to start a new club at Mt. Healthy South Elementary School along with volunteers from my church, Evangelical Community Church, who is active serving the school and this increases our outreach there.
I am a native Cincinnatian, growing up on the west side and eventually moving to the northwest. My husband and I now live in Maineville, Ohio. We are avid golfers, active in our church which include Bible studies, community groups and service in other areas. We have a new-found hobby of kayaking, too. Of course, four of my greatest joys are my four grandchildren who have are very special and been a huge blessing.
