Trish excepted Christ at age 15 while on a youth group retreat, for a church that was not her own, at the invitation of a neighbor she did not know well. Looking back, it is clear that that was a divine appointment. She has been married to Steve since 1981 and together they have 10 children and five grandchildren. This allows her to use her child development degree constantly. She is delighted that the Lord has given her the desires of her heart.
