She sees the value that the Lord has put on every person individually and strives to seek that out in people.

Liz understands that her purpose is to show people the joy of the Lord and allow them the space to feel comfortable and experience God’s unconditional love for them. She is happily married to Danny, a Youth Pastor at Christian Life Cathedral, and you can find her most days outside enjoying God’s creation, or sitting on her porch with a cup of coffee and some knitting needles.
