About Me

Bryan and I

I married my junior high sweetheart and we have three children, one girl and two boys. We also have two cats and a Saint Bernard. We currently reside in west Michigan in a log cabin overlooking a pond.

Erika and I

In 2020 my sister and I joined our teaching skills together and launched “The Context and Color of the Bible” podcast. Our goal is to add context to Scripture so we can add color to the black and white pages of the text. You can find our podcast on your favorite podcast app. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

I received my bachelor’s of science degree in elementary education from Taylor University. I taught in a brick-and-mortar classroom for five years before having children. Currently I’m a homeschool mom. In 2021 I became an online teacher as well. I taught Chinese students through VIPKid and now I teach with Outschool and APH Virtual ExCEL Academy.

My love for teaching took me into the classroom at church. I’ve taught one year olds through adults. Whether I’m on the floor playing with toddlers and reading the Bible or answering hard questions posed by junior high students or digging in deeper to the Bible with women, I’m implementing my own curriculum. You can usually find me curled up with a commentary preparing for my next Bible study.
