I'm a small town girl, who moved to the Chicago suburbs in High School. Never expected to love the city, but I did, while living in Chicago for 4 years, and then Moscow, Russia for 4 years. I never expected or planned to be a missionary, but I did that too, when God called. Now I'm back in a small town...never expected that either, but here I am! I am so thankful that God brings unexpected things into my life.
