My children, grandchildren and I grow in the word, prayer and worship.
In 2000, I moved my son, Tim, and I from Washington State to Omaha, my hometown. My mom and two brothers were here and I wanted us to have time with my mom, who was then 83. We had ten years with her before God said her mansion was finally ready for her. I didn’t want to spend time church-visiting because we had just left some wonderful people who were dear to our hearts, so I asked the Lord where He wanted us. He brought Glad Tidings to my mind. We came and there was no mistaking that this was home.
Having been called to children’s ministry, I applied and began serving in Kings Kids and teaching puppets. I knew in volunteering to serve, you get to know people. And through the years, many of our congregation have become dear to my heart.
If you want to learn something, you hang with the people who can teach you. So I’ve been in Small Groups studying the Bible, I’ve been to the prayer room to learn to pray, and I’ve been to our Sunday services to learn to worship. Being a part of these has transformed my relationship with the Lord to where I am better equipped to teach others what I know to be true.
I still love being a part of the children’s ministry, but I’ve grown in other areas. Now I also get to lead worship in the prayer room. I am so blessed to have both my children and their families at Glad Tidings. I appreciate that they can also grow in the Word, Prayer & Worship.
