Thanks for stopping by! As pastor at Maple Sheyenne I enthusiastically greet you and welcome you to experience our church for yourself! We are a small but mighty group that loves being church from worship to serving our community!
I grew up in central North Dakota and attended Concordia College, Moorhead and graduated from Minnesota State University-Moorhead before getting my Masters of Divinity from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA. I began my pastoral ministry in the suburbs of Chicago doing a mission redevelopment and spent 8 years there. I have two daughters, Maya and Maleah who keep me busy and on my toes. When I am not attending to my duties as mom, pastor and friend, I love to write (mostly sermons and devotional blogs), read (novels and parenting/pastor/world blogs), walk our dog, Mabel, knit (prayer shawls and scarves), drink coffee (Fair Trade all the way) and play games (on the Xbox or Kaboom). I am an avid movie watcher (Netflix and Redbox are my friends) and look forward to Family Night Fridays at our house where popcorn abounds!
