I currently reside in Grimes with my husband Lance and two children, Lucan and Gracelyn. We have attended Northpoint Church since 2007 and enjoy being involved there. I also participate in our local Moms in Prayer group and enjoy chronologically reading through the Bible via The Bible Recap podcast. In my free time, I ferry my kids around but also love being a part of Des Moines Mom, reading, podcasts, baking sourdough bread, and fermenting kombucha.
