Ms. Richards comes to Aug Prep with 12 years experience in ministry to Children and Youth at Episcopal churches in San Antonio, TX, where she taught and coordinated Godly Play (among other things including mission trips and lots of pizza!). Born and raised in WI, she earned her BA at Briercrest Bible College in Saskatchewan, Canada, with the majority of her studies focused on Bible and Theology. Prior to working in church ministry, she worked with at-risk children from New York City at Mont Lawn Camp in Bushkill, PA (where she met her husband, Greg) and worked for Lutheran Social Services as Program Manager of The Connection – a day services program for adults with developmental disabilities.
Ms. Richards and her husband have four children and two dogs. She enjoys lakes, music, and Wisconsin sports. She is thrilled to be teaching Godly Play at Aug Prep and her prayer is that through this beautiful, Montessori-based program for teaching the Bible, her students will experience God in new and meaningful ways each time they enter the Godly Play classroom, and understand that they are loved and cherished members of the family of God and of the Aug Prep family!
