(nee Garner). Currently I am a volleyball coach, teacher & I work as a local missionary with Athletes in Action. My passion is walking with people as they bring faith and sport together. God made sport, we get to enjoy it, yet it doesn't define who we are one bit. God is the only one who can define us. We have Nothing to Prove, as we already have a seat at the table with the Creator of the Universe.
