Elizabeth loves a great story, and she's always in pursuit of the best way to tell the most amazing, important story ever to children of all ages in every venue of children's ministry, from Sunday morning to VBS to family events. Sometimes this means she is nearly unrecognizable compared to the picture at left, and depending on the day, she might be found almost anywhere in and around the building or around town.
