Family: I’m married to the love of my life, my one & only, Emitt Grimes.

How long have you been working in your current field: I’ve worked with kids for over 12 years

What story does your family always tell about you: How I know the words to every song, even at a very young age.

Began relationship with Christ: As a child then rededicated my life at age 16.

One of your greatest experiences with God: When I rededicated my life to Him, I could hear Him calling me. My whole body felt His presence. It was awesome to feel His power within & around me. I knew He had been pursuing me all along. I was baptized a few months later. As I was underwater, I saw a bright light & a hand from heaven on me. Since then, I grew in my relationship mostly through my prayer time alone with Him. He has spoken so many promises over me & it’s amazing to see His promises fulfilled. His love has completely changed me. Who I am today is only because of Him.

If you could witness any event, what would it be? I would love to see when Jesus came out of the grave!

Life Motto: Not my glory, but His.
