My story began when my Mom felt the Lord leading her to homeschool me and my sister from a very young age, using a Christian curriculum. My faith took roots there, as she taught me and my sister the Word of God. These roots have carried me through thick and thin, as the Lord has always been faithful.
My walk with the Lord was greatly strengthened when we became involved at Calvary Tucson when I was in high school. I began singing in the worship team choir, and then the youth group worship team. Over a decade has passed since I first sang on a worship team, and my passion for leading people into intimate worship of their Creator has only grown.
In 2008, I married my best friend and high school sweetheart, Mike Dodd. We now have two amazing children who bring so much joy to our daily lives. Joshua, my information sponge, is an energetic light who thrives on making people laugh. Lizzy is my dreamer girl whose sweetness brings a smile to the face of anyone paying attention.
God brought us to Calvary Christian Fellowship in 2009. Since then, I have been given opportunities to serve in different capacities, including worship, media, and encouraging others who share my struggle with food addiction.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” -II Corinthians 1:3-4
