They have attended Watersedge Church for the last 16 years and Christine helps lead one of the kindergarten groups at the Yorktown campus. Her passion has always been creating and teaching. "I believe God has given me spiritual gifts to use and to share the love of art. My gift is using creativity in all aspects to have a positive influence on those around me and while working with children. Teaching art at Denbigh Baptist Christian School allows me to intertwine God's Word through art and to teach others about Him while creating art. I can help children create and incorporate a beautiful picture of who Jesus is through their creativeness. Because He is the ultimate, most creative God and He gave us passions to express and share it with others. I love teaching and I am inspired to help everyone find the artist in themselves and bring out their more creative side. I want my students to have an amazing experience and to be comfortable learning something new. My hope is that they are encouraged to make a beautiful new creation and follow their art."
