God led me to start Selah 8 years ago and at the time I no idea how many moms it would eventually impact! I have been married to Pastor Kris Duerksen for 16 years and we are the proud parents of 4 amazing kids. I’ve been in the parenting ‘business’ for over a decade so I know the tremendous joys and exhausting struggles in this season of life. I am far from being a perfect mom, but I want to do this job well so I am passionate about learning along with my fellow moms what it takes to run the race and run it well. When I’m not ‘on the job’ I love running, playing games, baking, and reading.
I started attending Selah 7 years ago, and in that time God really gave me a heart for new moms transitioning into the stay-at-home life and all the changes that come with that. As a first time mom stuck at home, I found community online but with Selah, I don’t need that! But because I’ve been there, I also have a passion to connect through social media and you can find me on our Vlogs and Instagram. I’ve been married to my husband, Adam, for 11 years. We have 5 adventurous boys, from 2-10! When I’m not doing dishes, laundry, or playing a game of memory for the 80th time that day, you can find me reading while I drink instant decaf (moms gotta sleep!), pinning hilarious parenting quotes, or making snow angels in my favourite season.
