Hi, I'm Daphne.

Daphne is our dedicated Marriage and Parenting Ministry Coordinator. She has had the privilege of working in several ministries over the years, and her deep passion is to share the abundance of Christ’s love every day so as to strengthen and encourage others. She and her loving hubby Steve have been married 32 years and are blessed with five wonderful children, their spouses, and three lovely granddaughters. Daphne loves time in the morning with coffee and God, moments with her family, reading, watching movies, listening to music, and kayaking.

What’s something new you’ve learned this year?

How to quit parenting adult children. It’s actually a work in progress.

Something you’re good at:

Being spontaneous. I especially love trying different kinds of food—desserts best of all!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An architect or an interior designer

Where’s your happy place?

In front of the fireplace, with a cup of creamer (and a little coffee), spending time alone with God. It is so peaceful and exciting at the same time!

The best thing you cook/bake:

I make chocolate-covered strawberries. There’s no cooking or baking involved, so it’s great for everyone!
