More than a quarter of a century – that’s how long I have been married to Ernie – I just love saying that!! During that time we have been blessed with two incredible young men we get to call our children, John and Ricky. Ernie and I live in Hampton, and unlike me, my husband is one of those rare people that are actually FROM here! However, since I’ve lived here 30 years and I’m from just up the road around the Richmond area, I can almost claim Hampton as my home town.
We have been a part of Freedom Life since the doors opened in 2004 (actually that was the rest of my family – I took a couple of months to complete a commitment elsewhere). We knew Freddy from a previous church and so that was our initial connection to Freedom Life, but it was the message of Grace that changed our lives and keeps us coming back for more! I absolutely LOVE being a part of a church where I feel comfortable inviting ANYONE – as Freedom Life is a “melting pot” of people.
I became an Elder in March of 2010. I enjoy being associated with a leadership that don’t take themselves too seriously, but take their passion for The Lord very seriously! Its how “Work” gets done!!
Spending time with my family (immediate and “extended”) is my all-time favorite thing – I just love people, and I love making new friends! Any chance I get to have a good conversation, a good laugh or a good hug, I’m a happy camper!
RANDOM, QUIRKY FACTS: I get goose bumps every time I hear the Star Spangled Banner played; I really enjoy Greek yogurt and cake with butter cream frosting (but not together); going fast on the open water and playing Phase 10 and Catch Phrase.
