THE START OF SPARK
"I’m a dreamer and a planner. I have big ideas and I like to make big things happen through creative entrepreneurial ventures. At a young age, I started creating performing groups for youth. My passion for producing shows has continually expanded because I love the excitement and joy that singing and dancing brings to audiences. (For me in particular, the Spirit really speaks through uplifting music.)
Starting an inspirational performing group was something I always knew I would do, but I didn't know how it would start. When the time was right, and with the help of a great mentor, McKay Crockett, (and a lot of support from my husband Doug), SPARK came into existence last September. Singers with strong testimonies of Christ were drawn to the group and they began performing together with the goal of creating a movement for all ages to “rise up in faith and be a light to the world.” When we came up with the group name, we didn’t even realize all the ways that the name SPARK would actually define the work we are doing. Managing SPARK and producing the videos and shows has been very rewarding. I love that the music and the messages personally affect the members of the group as much as they affect their audiences.
As I said, I love making big things happen, and the big thing I want to see happen through SPARK is for many people to find Christ, or if they have already found Him, to grow closer to Him. I know that a life in Christ brings peace and security and changes hearts. It’s changed mine. I think He’s happy about what we are trying to accomplish through SPARK."
