Hello! I’m Doris. I’m wife to a gentle but passionate giant, mother to two free-spirited fairy princesses and friend and daughter to our beautiful Servant-King. I’m also the Marriage and Family Life Pastor at New Joy Church and am surrounded by gifted, wise, and loving people that I can call my brothers and sisters in Christ.
I am not always a good role model when it comes to being a wife or mom, but I am really good at learning and growing. The two most important things I’ve learnt are: 1) It’s okay to not be perfect. God’s grace is sufficient for me and He uses my mistakes and messiness to remind me that I can’t do this without Him. And 2) I need people in my life who I can lean on, learn from and grow with. I’m a little nervous about connecting with you in this way as it’s really out of my comfort zone, but I truly believe that we all need community and I’m excited to learn and grow together with you as we work towards building Jesus-centered, Kingdom-minded families.
