I have lived in Colorado since I was 4 years old. My husband Doug, moved to Colorado in from Billings, Montana. When we had our children Ashley in 2001 and Brandon in 2003, we moved to the Cherry Creek School district. In July 2005, we needed our children baptized before my twin brother, Aaron, was being shipped off to Iraq. Our church at the time would not accommodate the date I needed so I called Smoky Hill United Methodist Church. Not only was I welcomed to the church with open arms, but I had my children baptized before my brother left. I started working in the nursery in 2008. In 2014, I started working with Donna, doing Nursery Administration. Prior to this, I was doing home daycare since 2006, which was closed down in 2015 when I was offered the job of Children and Family Director. I was very lucky to have Teri Dahn to train me and learn her job over the last year. Helping our children of the church learn about GOD in Sunday School is very rewarding. I have a wonderful group of volunteer Sunday School teachers.
