Being born on November 25th, 1961, Carlsbad has been my hometown for most of my life. My husband Keith and I were married in August of 1982 and have lived in Oceanside for the past 30 years. We have three grown children, Kristen (36), married to Dominic, Alyse (26), married to Benito, and Conner (20), who is a college student. We also have three amazing grandsons, Nolan (12), Gavin (8), and Devin (4).
Our family loves to camp & hike. My husband and son built me a Tear Drop trailer for my son’s senior project. I also LOVE to cook. The bigger the crowd the better!
I love the beach! We live in paradise. We toured eight European countries one summer and Rome, Germany, and Austria were wonderful. I very much enjoy history and Europe definitely has history!
I have always been an avid swimmer, and I thoroughly enjoy the water. But I am always up for a Manicure/Pedicure and massage with my girls.
My favorite books are the Bible, and books by Charles Spurgeon. One of my first Pastor’s, Chuck Butler and his wife Carol, were probably the ones with the biggest influence on my life. Their ability to teach God’s word, and mentoring me through the Scriptures completely, changed my life!
My favorite bible verses are: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8(NIV) “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
Romans 12:2 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
