I've been taking care of kids since I was in grade school...I know that sounds crazy, but growing up, my mom wasn't always there for my brother and I so I was mom to him. And as I got older I started babysitting every weekend, then I took summer nanny jobs, and the last year and a half, I've been a nanny for a great family. The parents felt the girls were old enough they didn't need me anymore, so that was the end of that. I am a volunteer with Campus Life for high school teens and I am a small group leader for 7th graders at church.
