I am blessed to serve Hosanna as their Children and Family Ministry Director, primarily working with children ages 3 years – 5th grade, and families. I joined Hosanna staff on September 14th, 2020. I am excited to share the love of Jesus with Hosanna’s disciples as we walk together through the seasons of life.
I have been a life-long lover of Jesus, and connected to the LCMS since birth! After graduating from Concordia University with my BA in Elementary Education and Early Childhood, I’ve taught in the classrooms of Lutheran Schools for 20 years. I have served as an educator of grades K-4, PE and Technology teacher, high school and Jr. high volleyball coach, athletic director, and recently served as Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry at Trinity Lutheran in Janesville, MN. I married a hometown boy from Janesville, Andy Dimmel, in 2002, and we live on the family farm with our four beautiful children: Steven, Hope, Morgan, and Oliver. God has richly blessed us with surrounding family, golden retriever fur-babies, and a love of the outdoors and sports.
