I was invited to a Community Purse meeting a couple of years ago, brought a friend along and we were smitten. The idea of bringing a group of friends together to bless local non-profit charities was a dream come true. So, we started the McHenry County chapter in November 2018. We have been blessed to give generously to six local charities.
Currently I serve with LifeSpring Community Church in Spring Grove, IL. LifeSpring is church plant of Lakeland Church in Gurnee, where I served for about 20 years. I love organization and databases and putting my “ducks in a row”.
I have been reminded that while my plans are good, the Lord has specific, wonderful plans for my life. I live in the strength of these promises, first and foremost, Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” My home is in Lindenhurst, IL and my family includes my husband John, my son Dan and my sweet dog Missy.
