Brookside builds Jesus-centered homes through healthy relationships which result in Gospel-saturated communities.
I am blessed that God placed me in a Christian home, where from the time I was a baby, I was taught about Jesus and his love for me. My parents modeled Christ and were active in church leadership and volunteering. As a small child, I attended a Child Evangelism class with my older sisters, and there understood that I was a sinner and accepted Jesus into my life. Through my school years, God kept pouring into my life, and I learned more about the Bible and His truth.
God continued to work in me, using parents, family, church friends, and four years at Bible College to develop spiritual growth. My life hasn’t been perfect, and I have struggled with sin, pain, and loss, but I have experienced the awesome truth of God’s forgiveness and grace. When I struggle with trying to feel valued and worthwhile, Jesus is there to remind me that I am complete and valued in Him.
My husband and I came to Brookside shortly after we were married i n 1982 and have been involved here ever since.
My Hope for Brookside
My hope is that Brookside can be a place where people see that God loves them unconditionally and through Jesus, they can experience grace and freedom.
