Emily Pearson remembers officially asking Christ into her life at camp in middle school. Reflecting on the darkest times of her life she sees that God is always by her side. She lives by the statement “I am the product of undeserved grace.” Emily is the mom of 3/4 children. As a single mom Emily wants her children to see God in her life. Emily’s favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Stacey Kurut first met Christ when she was asked to referee a christian youth basketball program in her early 20’s. As a referee for this program, she began going to church. During one service she heard the song “I Can Only Imagine”. Stacey became overwhelmed with the Holy Spirit and committed her life to Christ. Stacey is a wife and mom of five children. God has been growing and stretching Stacey in this season of life by leaning into His strength in the midst of anxiety and depression. Stacey’s favorite verse is Philippians 4:4-7. “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Tammy felt God leading her to the Four:10 Ministries where she currently serves as the Executive Director. Tammy, along with her husband, have three adult children and grandsons. 1 John 4:18 has been a verse that has been a favorite for many seasons of her life. “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
