Psalm 116:1-2

I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on his name as long as I live.

My husband Al and I have 5 adult children.

My work experience includes; healthcare at Presbyterian Homes, cleaning homes and industrial cleaning, teaching classes in art, geography and creative writing and everything else through home school experience.

Some of my favorite activities are, visiting friends, time with grandkids, reading, writing, biking and hiking, drawing, painting and sewing.

I love the family-friendly atmosphere and encouraging staff and parents at CCLS. My intent is to encourage and inspire the kids who attend AfterCare through play time, activities, hanging out and homework.
