I am brand new to the CRCNA Communications Team and am looking forward to connecting people to each other and to ministry resources! Born in Cereal City USA (Battle Creek, MI), I grew up in the CRC and have been involved in youth ministry, small groups, and outreach. I currently live in Grand Rapids, MI, with my husband Drew. A few of my favorite things include being outside, DIY projects, and traveling.
My hope is that this playlist will bring you closer to our Creator, who is worthy of all our praise. Enjoy!
