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.”

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