I grew up in the wild west of Sydney but came to follow Jesus in my late teen years when I moved to Brisbane. I attended a number of camps and retreats and I saw God working in other people’s lives and he changed my heart throughout that time! I really experienced God’s love through the way that others loved and encouraged me. He healed my heart of some hurts and gave me hope for a future. More recently having my own kids I have realised his tender love to me as a father loves his children – only his love is bigger and better!

I have been a part of Rivers Church for over 10 years. My family and I love being part of this caring community and love serving others in various ways. The love and grace of God is evident in this place, so it’s a cool place to be.
