General Comments:

After graduating from Nordhoff high school in 1964, I went to Ventura College to pursue business and home economics. Upon completion I realized I did not want to work in this area and my real love was Literature and Psychology, which I went two more years, with plans to transfer to a State college in California.

I went into the Admissions office and decided to choose the state college that was the furthest north! I thought it was California State University, Chico, so off I went. During this time, my mother, brother and sister were praying for me that the Lord Jesus would impact my life. I thought I was okay and started going to the college group at Neighborhood Church. It was mostly a social gathering.

Then I met some people who were going to a little church on the edge of town, it was an Assembly of God church with mostly older people, a couple of young families, a few hippies who had been converted and an elderly woman as Pastor with 2 young men as her associates. Growing up in a Baptist church, I found this environment strange to say the least. I had found myself in the midst of the Jesus Movement in Chico in January 1969. It was amazing and glorious. I had an encounter with the love of God the Father.

He came to me and said He wanted to be a Father to me, and my response was, well if you want me then I want you. Those were days of the Presence of God that remained and all we wanted to do was go to church and meet with God. We met for prayer meetings in the Morning and fellowshipped with our new brothers and sisters.

I realized I didn’t have time to go to college, so I dropped out of Chico State. I wanted to go to Bible College, but had heard that there weren’t too many good ones that were on fire, so I heard about one in England. After my sister and I spent 2 months in France with Operation Mobilization, selling Billy Graham books from village to village in Aix on Provance, and Avignon, I crossed the channel and lived 2 years in Kenley, Surrey, England, about 20 minutes south of London, at the Bible School there. After I finished bible school, there was a need for a secretary at the newly opened base on the Isle of Cumbrea, west of Glasgow, Scotland. Youth with a Mission rented this 16th century cathedral sitting atop a hill.

Sometimes, we didn’t have much to eat and some visitors commented that it seemed like a kitchen out of Dickens novels in the basement. But we still had fun taking teams to churches and preaching on the street corners.

After a few months I felt like it was time to go to Singapore, where I felt the Lord called me shortly after I dedicated my life to Him. So off I went, thinking there was a youth with a mission team, but there was only a representative. However, he had a rich Christian Father-in law and they took me into their home. So I began going door-to-door with the Christian teenagers, and doing various crusades in churches.

After a few months, I came back to Chico and our church was starting a Bible School. So, I was secretary, half a day and taught a couple classes in the school the other half. It was there that I met Damon Posey who had been saved out of a hippie lifestyle. He loved Jesus and he loved me. We got married on June 18, 1977. We have lived in Chico, Sacramento, San Jose, Portland, Oregon, back to San Jose, back to Chico and have now been in Redding the last 6 years. We’ve been married now 32 years and I can say it’s always best to let Jesus choose your partner.

We have 3 amazing children- Isaac (our oldest) and his wife Natasha, just moved to Redding a month ago and so we get to see our grandsons, Jackson and Sawyer more often now. Katie – is doing her PH.D work at Penn State in the area of Curriculum Development (her Masters was in Children’s Literature) and Jonathan, is a songwriter in New York.

God has truly blessed us.
