Fulfilling my duties as a watchman on the wall brings me great satisfaction, although, the weight of God’s grief over the lost and rebellious in this generation can be overwhelming at times. As the headlines roll out prophetically, my moods sometimes swing wide, but I keep my eyes on Jesus who keeps me sane.
Research, study, writing, teaching – these are the things that make me tick.
I’ve been in God-College most of my life, and have studied Origins and Eschatology specifically for the last three decades. I specialize in tying current events and discoveries to the Bible because every day the Bible is being proven right from both ends. I’ve taught an Alpha & Omega class to teens and adults for several years, and have created my own children’s church and VBS curriculum using the Answers in Genesis “7 C’s of Creation” model.
My husband and I have written a novel together, and are working on a second – both considered “spec fiction” by the Christian publishing industry. The first is a techno-thriller filled with spiritual warfare, political intrigue, gruesome subcultures, and pompous religiosity. The second will be an adrenaline packed survival drama.
As a homeschooling mom of three, teaching has become a way of life for me. Rarely do I give a simple answer when a detailed one is so much richer. My penchant for words makes it a challenge to limit my teaching videos to ten minutes, but my crack production team [read: teenage son] assures me shorter is better.
I pray that all of my endeavors point to Jesus Christ and lead people to repentance and faith – not just believing faith, but mature faith that can stand firm to the end.

Mikayla says this is where I’m supposed to say something about myself. Well, as this site should be more about helping YOU help others see GOD – I’ll be brief.
I’ve spent the last 20 years or more teaching, writing, producing media and music. I love playing piano, pretending to play guitar and drums and acting like I can still skateboard. Depending on how much you want to stalk me on the Internet, you may find evidence of me indwelling costume characters, juggling jesters and magical unicyclists – but I may just deny even the possibility.
In recent years, I’ve been serving in full-time ministry as either a worship director, technical director or both. As Mikayla, most of my education has been God-college. He has led me and guided me through many seasons of being mentored while also being a mentor. The areas in which God needed me to know things – he gave me unique opportunities to teach. I’ve never felt that I know enough. But He doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.
When called to full-time ministry in 2006, God refused to put a label on the calling. He did not call me to be a youth speaker, worship leader, tech guy, pastor or evangelist. No. He called me to be prepared – when necessary – to fill every one of those positions. However, before I could operate in ANY of those positions, God had to bring me back to the basics and correct alignment. He even called me out of church ministry for a time. My priorities had to be re-launched and the training from the ground up began. Now, I’m entering yet a new season.
God called me to ministry. And in some way, or maybe several ways, He has called you too. Don’t despise simple beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). Seek to hear His voice and be ready to take the small steps to action.
That wasn’t much of a bio. So, if you want to hear more about my slightly odd life…I wrote a book about part of it. It’ll be available soon – and it won’t be brief.
