    I’ve been married to my favorite pastor for 33 years. I have watched God interact with me and my family, my church family and our community each and every day. He is a good, good Father and I am happy to represent Him as Director of our Family Ministry here at Living Vine Church. I directed a similar ministry at our church plant in Snohomish, WA.
