Her interests include - reading, traveling, going to Curves, watching football, and my most favorite is spending time with my family and friends.

 Her favorite Bible verse is - One of my favorite verses is – Isaiah 43:1-3.   “ . . . this is what the Lord says, Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” 

In her opinion, the best thing about MRCA is the feeling you have when you first walk into MRCA.  The warmth and love that permeates the hallways, the smiles and laughter of the children as they interact with fellow classmates, faculty and staff, and the undeniable presence of the Lord that is evidenced daily by and through His faithfulness to this ministry.

There has never been a day in the nine years that my children have been going to MRCA that I have had a doubt that they were not safe and loved.  We are so blessed to be here.

Each year the teachers pray and seek guidance in placing each child in the class that would best suit their situation.  God has guided and I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that every one of my children has been placed in the class with the teacher that they needed for whatever situation we were going through that year.
