Hi! My name's Kelly, and I'm a preschool director turned family director. I've served in 2 church plants, 1 portable church and made it through 2 church mergers. It's been one wild ride!

I'm currently serving at Grace Hill Church in Collierville, TN helping to lead the family team. I've been married to Jason for 13 years.  We've got four awesome kids whose ages stretch from the preschool phase to the middle school phase. When I'm not adulting you can find me vegging out on reality TV and cookies ’n cream milkshakes, because for real…adulting is hard!

I'm passionate about helping churches make a family a priority. The local church is the hope of the world, and in a time when so many families are struggling, we have the chance to show that hope to families. So, let's leverage our children's ministry environments to make it easy for kids and families to connect!

Over the past several years, I've been writing leadership posts for church leaders through the curriculum Orange. You can find me on their Orange Leader blog, First Look blog and the Lead Small Blog. You can catch me at the Orange Conference this year leading a breakout on "A Year Long Strategy for Preschool Small Groups". I've also helped to contribute to an advent family devotion through Sacred Holidays.

I'd love to help your church make your children's ministry stronger than ever! Whether your looking for someone to consult with your church to take your ministry to the next level or maybe you're looking for someone to speak at your next volunteer event, I would love to connect with you!
