Over the past six years she has been employed at Genesee Lake school in Oconomowoc where she is a Program Coordinator. She knows that God placed her on earth to serve and love on His people.

Her prayer for Cornerstone of Grace is for the families to surrender their lives and wills to God so they may walk in the purpose God saw for them from the beginning.

Nancy is retired after working in public education for 32 years. She is married to Pastor Dave at River Valley Alliance Church in Watertown. Dave and Nancy have two grown daughters, two sons in law, and two amazing grandchildren. Besides her involvement at Cornerstone of Grace, she is involved with SafeFamilies of Wisconsin, leads women’s Bible studies in her church and watches her grandchildren during the school day. Nancy is motivated to serve Cornerstone of Grace because she knows that many women and children are struggling and need resources and relational support to survive in this crazy world. She desires that all who enter Cornerstone of Grace would know who they are in Christ Jesus and be changed by him. In her free time, Nancy enjoys reading on an air mattress in the lake, jigsaw and crossword puzzles, and organizing things.
Angel devoted twenty years to teaching at the secondary level as a special education teacher and reading specialist. During that time, she also served as the Director of Children’s Ministry at Rejoice Lutheran Church in Illinois. In 2019, she “retired” from teaching and founded God Inspired Life with the mission to provide resources that encourage others to seek a relationship with God and live the life they were created for. This same passion led to her involvement with Cornerstone of Grace; and she feels fortunate to be part of a ministry acting as the hands and feet of Jesus to women and children needing emotional and spiritual support. She is married to Danny, has two sons (one in college and one in highschool) and three dogs that keep her busy. When she is not volunteering at school, church or coordinating community events, she enjoys boating with her family, kayaking and hiking.
Rachel is an accountant by trade and the treasurer of Cornerstone of Grace but is finding ways to expand her ministry. She completed her undergrad work in accounting at UW-Whitewater and recently completed a master’s in ministry at Liberty University. Currently, Rachel serves as the staff accountant for Doosan Bobcat-Johnson Creek while living in Monona and attending Blackhawk Church. At the church she has been serving in youth ministry for 7 years by leading a group of high school girls. In the next year Rachel is looking at coming back to Watertown and calling it home again. Rachel is looking forward to serving as the treasurer of Cornerstone of Grace to use both her degrees while also looking forward to providing hope to women and children of Watertown who are in dire situations and in desperate need to see the love of Jesus Christ. In her free time, she enjoys going to different parks to hike at, spending time with friends and spoiling her niece and nephews with her time.
