Dana was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and moved to Joplin, Missouri, to attend Ozark Christian College in the 80s. She met her husband, Tom, and they have four children. They moved to Ozark, Missouri, in the early 2000s.
She loves kids and has worked with them for years. She is part of our Early Childhood Ministry, and specifically works as director of our Kids Korner Preschool (KKP), a preschool of Glendale for children ages 2 through 5.
Dana thinks there is nothing better than to teach little ones about Jesus and how much He loves them.
Her passions include loving Jesus and seeing Him work in our everyday lives. A published author, she shares her experiences with Jesus in a short devotional and has published inspirational romance novels and a mystery series.
Dana will never turn down a chance to write, eat Oreo cookies or Cheez-Its, or sip on a decaf mocha.
