I grew up in Baton Rouge and consider it home. An LSU graduate with a business degree, I’m a national marketing manager for a global engineering firm. I’ve got two young boys who both attend St. Luke’s Episcopal School. My oldest son asked me last year (in 2017) if we could go to church at St. Luke’s. We attended and now I’m not having to drag my kids out of bed on a Sunday to attend church. They want to go! It’s been rather charming to have my boys teaching me the way to be an Episcopalian. I’ve gotten an elbow and head shake a time or two. My nine year old loves correcting me! I have a soft spot for the pet blessing at St. Luke's in October. It’s something my husband usually takes the kids

My husband, Chevis, and I have attended St. Luke's for six years. He is from Baton Rouge, and I am from Mobile, AL. We met at work, when we were both working in restaurants, which is how I ended up in Baton Rouge in the first place! My sister and her (now) husband attended and were married at St. Luke's. We came to church with them and loved it! More family members have come as well, and now 14 adults and children from our (extended) family are members of St. Luke's. I love St. Luke's because it is home. My family is happy here. Stephen Ministry is a big part of my life at St. Luke's. It's a cross denominational one-on-one caring relationship in which lay persons, through extensive training,
