A Wife...to Steve Stern, and this is the joy of my life.
A mom...of three amazing daughters – Whitney, Tori & Tess as well as my only begotten son, Josiah. Whitney is married to Corey who is a huge blessing to our family (and Whit likes him a lot as well).
A pastor…at Westside Church in Bend, Oregon. It’s a place I love dearly and it’s been a joy to serve on staff there for nearly eight years. To discover more about the church I call home, just jump on the information superhighway and take a sharp left at www.westsidechurch.org.
A speaker...at churches, youth and women’s events. This may be why you’re actually on this site. Choosing a speaker is such an interesting thing, isn’t it? I’ve found that it’s one of the bigger conundrums in ministry as there are a lot of great speakers out there, but not every one is right for every group. I don’t have a lot of empty space in my schedule, but I do book as many speaking engagements outside my church as I and my family can comfortably handle. There are a couple of messageshere and here for your listening enjoyment, so you can see if we might be a good match for one another. Also, reading my (often random) blog will help you understand who I am. The best way to contact me for booking information is by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A pretend chef.
Pretty sure that there will be Food Network in heaven.
