Lydia has lived in the Ozarks for most of her life and has attended Glendale Christian Church since she was in elementary school. She has a passion for kids. Ever since she was old enough, she has been volunteering in the children’s ministry. Whether she was playing with babies in the nursery, reading to the preschoolers, or worshiping with the elementary kids, she has always been involved.
Lydia graduated from Missouri State University with a degree in Child Development and a minor in Religious Studies in 2019. She has taught at Kids Korner Preschool for five years now and is currently teaching a 2-year-old class in addition to her role as Early Childhood Minister.
She currently lives in Rogersville with her shepherd mix dog Roxie. She loves seeing children grow in their love for Jesus, and is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the beginning of their relationship with Him.
