Favorite Bible Verse: "But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Significant Life Experiences that led me to HLCS: HLCS began when I was a senior in high school. Even though I was not able to attend here, I have had a passion for the school and the need for Christian education in today's world. I received my bachelor's degree from Spring Arbor University which helped to prepare me, not only for teaching, but teaching with a Christian perspective.

I love HLCS because… of the love that the staff and the families have for each other and for the students. I saw multiple examples of other people going out of their way to help my children succeed.

Favorite Bible Verse: My favorite verse is Romans 8:15 "For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by him we cry 'Abba Father'."

Significant Life Experiences that led me to HLCS: I came to teach at Harbor Light because I am a HLCS graduate and wanted my children to have a similar educational experience.

I love HLCS because… it is a family friendly environment where my children's education can be based in the word of God.  As a teacher, I love the staff and students and look forward to spending time with them.

Activities & hobbies I enjoy: Outside of school, I enjoy leading worship, playing volleyball, re-decorating my home, and spending time with my family.

Favorite Bible Verse:

“I will hear what God the LORD will say;
For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones;
But let them not turn back to folly.
Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him,
That glory may dwell in our land.
Lovingkindness and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth springs from the earth;
And righteousness looks down from heaven.” Psalm 85: 8-11

Significant Life Experiences that led me to HLCS: My first contact with HLCS was as a student. My seventh grade year was the first year of HLCS as a school. I graduated from Harbor Light in 1991 and went on to study ethnomusicology at Wheaton College and Kent State University. Returning to Northern Michigan after 4 years in Thailand, I joined the staff of Harbor Light Community Chapel as the Arts Director. Through my work at Harbor Light Chapel, I was given the opportunity to help write the curriculum for, and teach Bible to the Junior and Senior classes. I have immensely enjoyed the experiences I have had as a teacher to the great students of HLCS.

I love HLCS because… it is a place where faith and learning are brought together and applied to the lives of the students and faculty. It is also a place where people are treated as children of God, made in His image.

Activities & hobbies I enjoy: making music, skiing, cycling, and photography.

Favorite Bible Verse: One of my favorite Bible verses is Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV). "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." 

Significant Life Experiences that have led you to HLCS: Our oldest daughter came to us one day and said that she felt she should switch to a Christian school to be closer with other Christians and have more Christian friends. We enrolled her in the middle of her freshman year and she loved it! We planned to enroll our other two children the following year but ended up moving. A year later we returned and put all three daughters in HLCS. They were welcomed with open arms. Harbor Light has made the transition back up north much easier for all of us! I like to be involved with the school and so I volunteered and began doing the Facebook page, then the website and now a position in the office! I love what I do at Harbor Light so much that it doesn't really seem like a "job"! I am really enjoying the encouragement and blessing of working with others who love the LORD and are seeking to glorify Him in their teaching and service. With all our hearts we strive to prepare the next generation of leaders for Christ!

I love HLCS because… of the family atmosphere that is here. I love how the school strives to glorify God in how they teach and how they emphasize families, and encourage church involvement like a stool with three legs (Family, Church, School). The staff is truly committed to helping the students grow in the LORD while also helping them identify their gifts and where God may be guiding them for the future. This is a wonderful place!

Activities & hobbies I enjoy: I enjoy ministering with family and friends as well as studying and teaching God's word. I love working at Bible Camp in the summer and investing in the next generation. I like playing and coaching volleyball and taking picutures!

Favorite Bible Verse: I have a favorite chapter, Psalm 34

Significant life experiences that led me to HLCS: God did.  I was not looking to teach at all but when my kids heard that Mrs. Ledingham would be retiring they encouraged me to teach history.  I told them they were crazy and that I was not interested.  They kept bugging me and then Mr. Vanest talked to me and encouraged me to consider it.  God moved my heart to really think about teaching history and I began to get really excited about it. 

I love HLCS because… the spiritual aspect of my student is just as important, or more so, to the staff at Harbor Light as the educational aspect.  The staff has really had an impact on the spiritual development of my kids.  I like that I can pray with my students and openly discuss the spiritual aspects of history and how history is His (God's) story.

Activities & hobbies I enjoy: Reading, Hiking, Cooking
