Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Psalm 100:2
I have been playing the piano since I was five years old. I grew up at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Nederland, Texas, and attended Trinity Lutheran School in Port Arthur, Texas, from Kindergarten thru 8th grade. Church organists and choir directors at both places were my mentors. They taught me to use my talents in service to our Lord from a very young age.
I went on to receive a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. I met my husband Jerry there. We have two grown daughters and two wonderful sons-in-law.
I began working at Christ Lutheran Church and School in 1999. My responsibilities have expanded over the years. They now include planning the worship services, playing piano or organ for all worship services, directing adult choir, bell choir, and middle school choir, and teaching music to the elementary grades.
Music is a universal language! It is filled with emotion. It is an expression of our praise and thanks to God for all His love and faithfulness. It is a way we can proclaim the saving message of salvation through Jesus. I love teaching and sharing my love of music with all those worshiping and learning at Christ Lutheran Church and School!
