Cindy was literally born to be a mom. Forty years ago, she married her high school sweetheart and together they raised eight amazing kids, five of whom are married and raising their own children.

As if that isn’t enough, she gets to work at a GREAT church, with kids, and the people who love them; you seriously cannot make this stuff up! It is her passion to impart the reality and love of Jesus to EVERYONE who passes through KidsPoint; young and old, shy or bold, sweet or sassy, nice or naughty, we all need to know how lavishly we are loved by our Father in heaven. In her spare time, she takes care of her chickens, two cats, two dogs, and even manages to sneak in some spontaneous adventures with her sister.
