I was Fairview's first Music Teacher and returned in 2011 after taking time to work from home while raising our 3 children. My husband, Mike, and I met at Holladay Park Church of God, a sister church to Fairview. He was 12 and I was 8. By that time I had already taken piano lessons for 3 years and had accepted the Lord. We started dating 12 years later. Yes, the decisions we make, the relationships we form and the talents we pursue as children are important. That is why teaching music is a serious business for me. Serious fun! Music has not always been my vocation but it has always been part of my ministry, community involvement and personal creative outlet. It is a privilege to pass that joy forward and to see my own adult children, former students and little grandsons continuing to make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Psalm 66:1.
