MEET THE TABLE LEADER: DANIELLE KELLER

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I live in Litchfield Park with my img_1362hubs and 3 kids. We have been married 23 years and own our own business. Chandler is 19 and a sophomore in college. Hailey is 13, and Ashley is 12. I’m one of those rare Arizona natives and grew up on the north side of town. I love decorating, shopping and all things Pinterest. But my passion is studying God’s Word.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT DESERT SPRINGS & HOW DID IT BECOME HOME TO YOU?

We’ve been attending DSCC for about 11 years. They had just moved into the old building (which had previously been a Catholic church), and the holy water vessel was still in the back of the sanctuary. Things sure have changed since then! We used to attend Palmcroft, and after we moved to Litchfield Park we found out that Pastor Don had moved to Desert Springs to help his son, Steve, out. We figured if he was Don’s son, it must be a good church, and we’ve been here ever since! 🙂

WHERE ARE YOU SERVING AT DSCC?

I serve on the Charis Women’s Team.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VERSE & WHY?

I have so many favorites, and maybe a few favorites for each season in life. But the one for right now is “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6. God is so good and so faithful, and that which He starts, He will complete! That gives me such comfort and encouragement, as I rarely ever get to see anything to completion in this season of my life. But the Lord is complete, and all that He begins in us He will complete!

If you see DANIELLE around, be sure to say “Hi!”

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at the age of 9. I am so thankful the Lord led me to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO. It was while I was there that I felt a call to full time ministry. My only stipulation was I didn’t want to go to Africa and I didn’t want to be a pastor’s wife! 🙂 When Don and I met and married, he was in youth work. After 6 years of marriage, God called us to First Baptist Church in Pekin, Illinois, where Don was the Senior Pastor. God knows where He wants to place us to use us for His glory! I am so thankful for the privilege it has been to live my life serving in the church and also international missions work through International Needs. God is so good to allow me to travel with my husband to 55 countries, teaching and encouraging women in their faith.

I have 4 children: Ric, Steve, Shari & Lori. We have 14 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren & another one arriving in April! My desire as I raised my children was that they would love the Lord and serve Him. I feel so blessed to be a mother, grandmother & great grandmother.

I enjoy walking, traveling, my Premier Designs Jewelry business, hospitality in our home and most of all, time with our family!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT DESERT SPRINGS & HOW DID IT BECOME HOME TO YOU?

When Don retired from Palmcroft Church, where we has pastored for 17 years, Desert Springs became our church home.

WHERE ARE YOU SERVING AT DSCC?

Don has served as Mission’s pastor here at DSCC, together we started the ministry called Fourth Quarter, and we host a Life Group. I serve on the Women’s Retreat Team and enjoy leading a Bible study table.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VERSE & WHY?

My favorite verse, which is my life verse, is Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
