Encouraging a closer walk with Christ

through mentoring, teaching, and evangelism.

About Me

I’ve been doing Christian ministry for 25 years and mostly on the college campus. Currently I do one-on-one mentoring, small group Bible study teaching, speaking at retreats and conferences, and coordinate events to reach our city with the Gospel. I live in Tucson, Arizona with my husband Lee who is the best answer to a lot of specific prayers!
