from natalie

My husband Ryan and I have lived in the Bismarck/Mandan area our entire marriage. Although every Winter I question our sanity for living here, I can’t imagine ever leaving the people who now feel like family! I stay very busy being mom to our 6 kids, homeschooling, and writing, but when the opportunity to be Children’s Director at Missio came up, I felt compelled to pursue it. Every Sunday I thank God for the gift that it’s been in my life. 

I love getting to know each of the kids God brings through our doors and the privilege of sharing Jesus and His Word with them. My passion and vision for Missio Kids is that it functions and feels like a home environment where every child feels know completely and loved unconditionally.
