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 on my Kindle and bedtime story series — we are currently in Percy Jackson), walk our dog, Nelson, knit (prayer shawls and scarves), drink coffee (Fair Trade all the way) and play games (on the Xbox or Pie in the Face). I am an avid movie watcher and look forward to Family Night Fridays at our house where popcorn abounds!
