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 28 years and are blessed with five wonderful children and their spouses: Ryan, Kyle (Samantha), Brooke, Brittany (Geoff), and Jacob. In her spare moments, Daphne enjoys coffee with God in the morning, time with family, reading, watching movies, listening to music, and kayaking.

What TV show are you into at the moment?

Designated Survivor

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

How to make centerpieces with fresh flowers for my daughter’s wedding.

Something you’re good at:

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

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!

Funniest/Worst vacation memory:

We went to Slidell, Louisiana and literally had an alligator out our backdoor… and the trip went downhill from there.

The best thing you cook/bake:

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