I am a lover of God, people and relationships. I spent nearly 20 years in high school and college-age ministry, and the Lord has blessed me with some pretty great administrative skills as well. I graduated from LIFE Pacific University with an A.A. in biblical studies, and from Warner Pacific University with a B.A. in business administration.
One of my favorite passages of scripture is Malachi 3:10-12: "'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,' says the LORD Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,' says the LORD Almighty. 'Then all nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,' says the LORD Almighty."
It is amazing to me that the Lord asks us to test him with our giving. I truly believe that you cannot out-give God. The more you give, the more he gives back to you. The heart of God is generous, and being good stewards of our resources and giving where he calls us to give is rewarding on so many levels. I am thankful to have the opportunity to build solid relationships with those who have a heart to give of their resources to Multnomah.
I live in Vancouver, WA with my amazing husband Linus and our crazy cat Dessa. We can often be found hiking in the hills of Forest Park, visiting cool Portland eateries or hanging out with family and friends.
