Beka grew up in a pastor's home and has been very active in children's ministry since she was a teenager. She graduated from Cedarville University and has held several children's ministries positions since graduating. She and her husband, Kevin, moved to the area a year and a half ago. Beka has a strong passion for children and their parents.
I was born in…Poughkeepsie, New York – lived there a whole 2 weeks before we moved!
Life verse…Kinda difficult to boil all the Bible has to say to both encourage and instruct down to pick one favorite… yikes! My go-to passage has always been Lam 3:21-24 and lately John 16:33.
Favorite Bible character...Ruth.
I have travelled to…Norway, Germany, Austria, Czech, Poland, Denmark (all when I was 10!) and Dominican Republic – been to the DR many times serving in the small village of Juan Tomas.
My significant other is…Husband – Kevin; and if you count her, our dog, Friea.
Biggest pet peeve…people taking too long to do something simple… like at the DMV!
What's on your bookshelf…cookbooks, but I just use the pictures for ideas, who has time to actually read the directions!?
My ideal vacation would be…taking Kevin to explore Norway and Europe!
I am happiest when...Kevin and I are actually home at the same time!
My favorite pastime...hiking in the mountains.
Likes…sweatshirts, candles, salt and vinegar chips, board games, pizza, sandwiches, black coffee.
My last meal would be…Pizza – hands down!
If I had a different job, I would be…a teacher in an inner city middle or high school.
My childhood ambition was…to serve others.
