When did you start coming to Canyon Springs?

6 years ago

What made you decide to Volunteer?

Canyon Springs helped us out with scholarships for our kiddos and I wanted to give back. So I started in the toddler room, then did VBS 3 years ago and every year since because it’s so magical. I had so much fun with all of these sweet kids I started helping in the Toddler room for church. I was happy to volunteer wherever they needed help.

Hailey would help me in the toddler room and then when she was old enough she started volunteering at Awana, VBS and the Toddler room on Sundays. Eventually this turned into every Sunday. Hailey loves the kids and babies and as much! As her Mom, it’s rewarding to serve with her and watch her with all the kids! They adore her and Hailey loves them back!

What is your favorite part about Volunteering?

I would say giggling with the kids. We play and dance and go on “bear hunts.” I also love, when I recognize families from school or sports as it makes you feel more connected when you see them at church.

Hailey says she loves helping people and meeting new people from volunteering. She likes it because she loves to play with little kids and make them laugh and loves the baby snuggles and when the babies fall asleep on her.
