1 John 4:10-11
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
Mrs. Cheri Witte
I graduated from Calvin College in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and minors in Math and English. After graduation, I worked at Calvin Christian Elementary School in Wyoming, MI. I taught 1st grade math, worked with the Special Education teacher as Educational Support Paraprofessional, and directed their after school program. After a couple years there, we chose to start a family, and I felt called to stay home with my children. I have been with Kids’ Corner for over a year.
I grew up on a farm in Edgerton, Minnesota and attended a Christian school there. I met my husband, Scott, at Calvin College and have been happily married for 16 years. We have 3 wonderful children that attend Hudsonville Christian- Noah, Kiersten, and Claire. We are members at First CRC in Grand Rapids, where I enjoy helping with GEMS, Little Lambs, Children’s Worship, and Bible study. I am also enjoying my term as a deacon. I love gardening, reading, cooking, travelling with my family, camping, watching my kids’ activities, and just being outside enjoying God’s world.
I’ve always enjoyed spending time with children. I love their curiosity and the way they take in the world around them. I am forever grateful to have Jesus in my life, and I strive to show His love to the children around me, to help them learn more about Jesus and His love, and to be His hands and feet on this earth. I am continually awed by the environment of Hudsonville Christian, and I know that the staff is the main ingredient. Seeing hundreds of children worshipping our Lord at chapel is one of the most beautiful things I will ever see on this earth, and I am so blessed to be one part of this amazing community of believers.
