Jodi thrives on all sorts of gastronomic adventures. Never one to let a lack of a few ingredients stand in her way, she confidently forges ahead to throw dinner together even if it means making Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken with no teriyaki and no pineapple. She’ll improvise! As a full-time homemaker, Jodi loves to connect with God through praise and worship and life-giving relationships with her female friends at Harvest. She’s served in several areas at Harvest including Life Groups, Catalyst youth, and the Worship Team. In this season of life she’s focusing more attention on her unique opportunity to bring God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven to her home as wife to her husband Jodie and mom to her three daughters.
If you could run away from all your responsibilities, where would you go and why?
I’d take off for Banff and Lake Louise in Canada because I read about them in a Jeanette Oke novel when I was a little girl. I somehow created a belief that life could be perfect in a log cabin with a fireplace surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.
