I will never be judgmental, always recognize and respect your beliefs, no matter what they might be. Likewise, I also have my own personal beliefs as a Christian. That was not always the case for me throughout my life’s journey. Growing up, I was raised and went to both grade and high schools as a Catholic. I remember learning that I was to love God and love other people. I married as a teenager, was divorced in six months and of course according to the church I could not be a Catholic anymore. I met some nice people in a local Baptist then a Lutheren church and pursued my belief in God as I got to know Him more personally. I read somewhere that the Bible said that Jesus, God’s son, came to earth to die for me so that I could know God personally and somehow it stuck with me. Read more.
I have been a minister of and also ordained with The Church of Interfaith Christians. I have also been a member in the choir at St Andrews Lutheran church for six years. I have since a child enjoyed music and singing. My professional training was mostly in voice. After being in choirs, and assorted bands I eventually found myself performing at wedding functions as a lead vocalist, emcee and band leader now for over 20 years. I have sung for more than a thousand wedding ceremonies and the receptions. When I realized that my calling was to be a minister, and more importantly, to actually unite people in marriage as an wedding officiant, it felt so natural for me to offer both of my God given talents. Now, my primary role in life is as a wedding officiant. I feel that my voice training and performances have greatly helped me with each ceremony that I officiate. Wedding ceremonies are my passion and feel so blessed that I can be present at that personal time a couple make their wedding vows. My personal spiritual beliefs and years of being a professional in a wide variety of settings has helped me to connect with the couples and express their reflection of love in each ceremony.
