I desire to see people know they are loved by God and that He has a beautiful plan and purpose for their lives.

I’m most passionate to help those who are lost, broken, and hurting. Lives are changed and miracles are seen when we share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s through His love and mercy that broken lives are mended and hurting hearts are healed. Therefore I’m excited and honored to partner with the Seed2Life team!

In addition to exhortation and giving, I have the gift of administration. I will use my gifts and experience to assist Seed2Life International in helping others see their ministry goals become reality. Ultimately reaching others for the sake of the Gospel and restoring hope.

I am looking forward to what God has planned for Seed2Life and personally serving as part of the team. My life experiences have given me compassion for the poor, lonely, elderly, disabled, and especially orphans.  My personal mission experience began in the home with foster and adopted children and has taken me to Mexico and Guatemala as well. I hope to be involved with many more trips; being the “Hand of God” to hurting people all over the world.  It is a privilege to be part of the Seed2Life team; doing my part to help enable other ministries to be effective for the Kingdom of God.

Knowing my identity in Christ has given my life meaning and purpose. I know I am a daughter of the King!  I am truly blessed to be born in the greatest country in the world, founded on Biblical truths and overflowing with abundant resources. His Word is clear that he desires His people to minister to the poor and those in need. I am excited to be serving as part of the Seed2Life team that is helping to do this in a healthy, God honoring way.

In everything that I do, I strive to give glory to my heavenly Father. Whether it’s being a godly wife, a great mom, or an ethical businesswoman, all I do is out of gratitude for all the blessings He has bestowed upon me. 


Much will be demanded from everyone who has been given much, and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be asked.” – Luke 12:48  (CEB). I take this verse to heart; recognizing my responsibility to those less fortunate. I’m very excited to be partnering with Seed2Life International; lending my God-given abilities as an accountant to serve as Treasurer.

I lived in Malawi, Africa for two years which taught me a lot about God, the world, and myself. I saw first-hand how various ministries and churches tried helping the poor, but it did not work out. I believe Seed2Life is doing amazing work to empower churches and ministries to reach the poor. I love to write, tell stories about people and experiences, and serve any way that I can. I believe I can help with identifying churches/ministries that are in need and make them known to the organization and potential donors. Additionally, I can use my writing and storytelling abilities to help people become more interested in helping the poor.

Over my 58 years of serving Jesus it’s been through the difficult seasons that I’ve learned the power and peace that comes from spending time with the Father in prayer. I’m excited to join the Seed2Life team as the Prayer Team Coordinator. My passion is praying for ministries and the needs of others and to see people find the freedom that comes through a personal relationship with Jesus.  I believe prayer is the key to heaven and faith unlocks the door. I believe that God is calling His people to pray.

Do you want to help the poor in your community but struggle gathering the necessary resources?

Do you have resources to share and are looking for a place to invest that will impact lives for generations?

Seed2Life International is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit. We are an all-volunteer run team passionate about helping to resource poverty alleviation efforts and those that reach out to assist the struggling in their neighborhoods. Needs such as housing, food, clean water, bibles, medical/educational/relational help, and basic life skills just to name a few, can provide opportunities to serve and share Jesus at the same time.

Seed2Life International also develops relationships with businesses, organizations, and individuals to gather and share resources such as volunteers, tangible goods, and finances to help equip those that are reaching out to the poor. We also offer support with building healthy teams, goal setting and strategic planning.

We eagerly await opportunities God brings us to help others pursue their God-given mission to touch the lives of people all over the world.
