I came to know Christ as my personal savior as a freshman in college at UW-Stout.  As a scared freshman with no friends I knew I did not want to enter the party scene so I was overjoyed when I was invited to hang out with some kids that didn’t involve drinking.  After hanging out a couple times they invited me to a Campus Crusade for Chris meeting and I remember accepting Christ at one of the very first times I attended.  I ended up accepting Christ over and over again each week until I realized that once was enough! I started reading the bible and met friends who were able to teach and encourage me.  Completely apart from me at a college 6 hours away my high school boyfriend also accepted Christ!  After we graduated we moved to Wausau, got married and started attending Wausau Alliance Church and our faith grew substantially!! We now have three kids and after teaching 4K in the Wausau School district I followed God’s calling on my life and spent the last 8 years at home raising our kids and homeschooling them as well.  I am SO excited God has called me back into the workforce and thrilled to be teaching at Faith Christian Academy. I love outdoor adventures of all kinds, listening to audiobooks and eating tacos.
