Kerry Michaels attends our HCF Lubbock campus. She and her husband, Kerry, have been married for 35 years. They have attended Harvest since 2011. They have 6 children, 2 daughters in-law, a soon to be son in-law, and 2 precious granddaughters. “Thirty years ago, God placed a strong desire in my heart to home school our children. It has been an unbelievable journey that I will always treasure.” Kerry enjoys being creative: crafting, cooking, and painting.
What books have changed your life?
Other than the Bible, as a child I remember reading all that I could find at the library written by Erma Bombeck. If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I doing in the Pits? was one of my favorites. As a young adult, I remember not being able to put down the historical novel Love is a Wild Assault by Elithe Hamilton Kirkland. I just recently finished Sacred Influence by Gary Thomas, a powerful book about how God uses wives to shape the souls of their husbands.
If you could escape all of your responsibilities, where would you go?
Escaping to the mountains has always brought peace to my soul. I love breathing in the mountain air, hiking, and unplugging from ALL devises.
What area of ministry are you most passionate about, and why?
I love to serve people, whether it is through coffee, food, praying with them, giving a shoulder to cry on, or making them look and feel better (it’s the hair dresser in me).
