Education: Trained in New Zealand at Carey Baptist College Auckland. I also have a teaching degree BA Hons in Technology with QTS. I will be undertaking further training here in the UK during 2010
Comment to those looking at my sermons: I’m still establishing myself as a new pastor. God’s still training me.
Sermon or series that made a difference: I like the old preaching best and feel there is much more depth to it.
One of my favorite illustrations: Optical illusions. How we view things in life that seem to look one thing, yet can be something else.
Family: I have 5 children and 1 grandson. I am married to David who works with the mentally ill.
I am also a part-time school teacher with kids between 4-11 years.
What my parents think of my sermons: N/A
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My Husband thinks I’m the best preacher out; (but then he would say that)
Best advice given to me about preaching: Never presume everyone Knows Christ, or the bible stories.
Books that have had an impact: anything by A W Tozer, Dr Martin Lloyd Jones, and Charles Spurgen.
Hobbies: singing, guitar, computer, soccer, and reading.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Be careful church with the holy things of God. Don’t touch what belongs to Him. Keep your hands off His church.
Something funny that happened while preaching: Someone put their hand and asked if they could go to the toilet.
What I want on my tombstone: She served Him who loved her
