Favorite Scripture Verse:

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1st Corinthians 13:6-8



I arrived at Blessed Sacrament in 1998 after moving to Midland from Kentucky. Finding a place to attend church was at the top of my “to do” list.  I was happy to find a welcoming and friendly Catholic church within walking distance of our new home. I enrolled my oldest son in 3-year-old faith formation classes and signed up to be a co-catechist in 1998. After many years as a catechist for elementary students I was hired to work in the school’s Kinder-plus room in 2006.  The following year I worked as a part time classroom aid for Kindergarten in 2007, and a full time classroom aid in kindergarten from 2009 to 2012. Also in 2007, I attended Divorce Recovery here at Blessed Sacrament.  I have been a part of the Divorce Recovery team that facilitates this class since 2008.  From 2009 to 2011 I also co-taught Theology of the Body to 9th graders for faith formation on Sundays.  In 2012, I became the “Lunch Lady” and “Extended Care Director”.  Throughout the many transitions, I added to my education as needed and to satisfy my own curiosity about our faith. I do believe everyone is meant to be a lifelong learner and I strive to encourage lifelong learning here at work and in my home.
