Tracy's God-given love and care for children was evident long before her coming to faith in Jesus. Her entire adult life has been a career in teaching and helping kids of all ages.

She immediately obeyed God's path for her which included a long journey of attaining a seminary degree in Children, Youth, and Family from Indiana Wesleyan University. She has a loving husband (Brian) and three adult children (Megan, Caleb, and Noah). All it takes is seeing her with kiddos for five seconds and you know this is God's call on her life. She lights up with joy around all children.
