As a quick update until I have more time, here is my newly written bio for my website:
Denae Kauffman is an accomplished photographer, pianist, and speaker who loves the Lord Jesus and seeks to live soli deo gloria. As a photographer who loves living in Montana, she loves to spend a day in the great outdoors photographing the beauty of nature and Godís creation. She also enjoys doing wedding photography which led to her own business of Soli Deo Gloria Photography. Her greatest joy in sharing her piano accomplishment is to play for worship services. She also greatly enjoys leading Godís people in worship when she gets the opportunity to do so. She wishes to encourage her generation to serve God with their whole heart, to seek His face, and to live for His glory. Her public speaking includes sharing about her journey to India, motivational talks for young people, and being a Hunters Safety Instructor and Regional Coordinator of Bowhunters Safety Instructors for the State of Montana. She is involved in several local and national organizations including her roles as Area Rep. for Operation Christmas Child a division of Samaritanís Purse Ministries, and Leader for The Truth Project Biblical Worldview Discussion Groups by Focus on the Family. As the oldest of three children, she enjoys spending time with family, cooking, scrapbooking, her private homecare of the young and elderly people she cares for, and her fondest dream is to fulfill her calling to become a Godly wife and mother.
I am a 25 year old who loves my Lord Jesus with all my heart. I seek to honor Him in all I do and to reflect His glory to the world around me. I love ministering wherever He places me. I have played the piano since I was 4 and love it very much (when I play I feel God's pleasure) I play for church frequently, and am also a worship leader in my church. I love kids and can't wait to have my own. Right now I am caring for a four year old and also doing private homecare for the elderly. I am very involved in my community and volunteer frequently. I am currently leading a Truth Project Biblical Worldview Studies Group (if you haven't heard of this you should check it out @ www.truthproject.org, it is really awesome)! I love to hunt, and teach both Hunter and Bowhunter Education. I have been feeling very out of touch with the homeschool world since graduating, and am very glad to have found HSA.
The Bible, Anything by Joel Rosenberg, Chuck Colson, Janette Oke, Lori Wick, Dee Henderson, Ruth Graham, Max Lucado. What can I say, I love to read. I never have enough time to read.
Any Southern Gospel Music (Jeff and Sheri Easter are my favorite), Classical, Hymns, some Praise and Worship.
Hey thanks! Yeah Montana was really beautiful while I was there which was during the summer months. I was in Bozeman, Big Timber, Livingston and Billings. I liked Bozeman the best for sure. Western Montana is nice. Where is Glasgow?
Hey Denae! So I saw this girl at church the other day and she looked SO much like you. Anyway, it made me start thinking about you and wonder what's new in your life. How have you been? Did you go to the Idaho get-together?
