I was born and raised in Kentucky. With a father who suffered from bi-polar disorder, an alcoholic mother, and a brother addicted to alcohol and drugs, I longed for a safe place. I had a wonderful aunt who took me to church and introduced me to Jesus. I knew from a young age, He was the answer to all the questions and problems in my life, I just didn’t understand how to have a real, fulfilling relationship with him that would enable that healing to take place.
It was through the tragic loss of a friend, who was also the business owner where I worked, that God revealed Himself to me.
The oldest of six kids I was blessed to grow up in a family that was Christ-centered. Growing up in the Calvary Chapel environment taught me the necessity and love for expository teaching.
