Michelle, a native Texan, grew up as a Pastor’s kid. Her parents became foster parents when she was a teenager. She saw firsthand the importance of a Christian home with a present mother and father. This stirred her heart to share God’s love with foster children and eventually led her into orphan work with Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls from 1999-2002. God continued to lead her to serve overseas in China from 2003-2019 where she met her husband from Colorado. They continued to serve overseas in China and Taiwan as God added two children to their lives. In 2021 God brought them back to settle in Abilene near family. Now Michelle looks forward to serve children and families here at Christian Homes.
