I’ve enjoyed singing and performing my whole life. Music is very important to me. I feel the spirit most through music. I try to infuse music into our home on a daily basis. I spend most of my time homeschooling our three children and am continuously singing and making up songs for them. I’ve enjoyed and learned much through my participation in the MMC and look forward to continuing that relationship.
Grace started singing for audiences when she was 5 years old. The family dining room was her stage. The console stereo was her piano. Her parents albums provided orchestra and backup singers. She went on to participate in music and drama from elementary school through high school landing roles in both dramatic and musical plays. She participated in vocal competitions earning highest marks and has sung with several community choirs throughout her adult years. MMC is by far her favorite and most rewarding choir she has been associated with. She is a founding member of the MMC and currently serves as Choir Services Specialist. When she is not singing she can mostly be found spending time with her husband and 4 children, their spouses and 11 grandchildren. Hobbies are vast and varied.
