I recognized my need for a savior and accepted Christ while I was in elementary school. While I am thankful for God’s grace in allowing me to grow up in a Christian home, I know that it sometimes made it difficult to see myself as a sinner, in need of God’s grace and unable to save myself by my own righteousness. But I am reminded of Philippians 1:6, “…He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Looking back over the years, I can see God’s working in my life. As a young adult, God moved my heart to a place where I recognized deeply that I could not be “good enough” through my own efforts. God reminded me that He is able to do what I could not and gave me peace when I sorely needed it. I am beyond thankful for His grace and steadfast mercy.
I attended Maranatha Baptist Bible College for three semesters, and had the blessing of taking classes that taught education from a Christian perspective. I then transferred and took classes online through UW Superior. While taking online classes, I started working at Faith Christian Academy. I started working as a teacher’s aide, and then was able to work a semester as the 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. I look back on that time in my life as the year I learned that I LOVED teaching in a Christian school. Being able to share God’s word and see His working in young lives has been such a precious experience, and one that I am thankful for every day. After having moved away from Wausau for around seven years, I am so excited to be back and teaching at Faith Christian Academy!
