Mrs. Lisa VanDyken
I have been working with children for the last 10 years. I have always loved being around children from volunteering with kids when I was younger to more nanny/childcare rolls in adulthood. I am so thankful to God for providing me (and our family) with this job here at HCS. Children are such a blessing from the Lord!
I grew up in a Christian home in NW Indiana (not far from Chicago), but I have never been a stranger to Michigan. I always enjoyed coming up here to visit family and Lake Michigan. My husband Tim and I got married in 2006. Tim grew up in Hudsonville and went to HCS and Unity Christian. We have 3 daughters – Emily, Julia and Leah who all attend HCS this year. We enjoy camping as a family! I love spending time outdoors and doing crafts as well!
I am thankful for the atmosphere here at HCS both with the staff and the families. I love that we not only can teach and show our love for God, but the kids are learning to do the same as well! I enjoy being a part of the HCS family here and am thankful for the seeds of faith we are planting and nurturing here at school. It is truly a blessing to walk along side these children and grow together in the Lord.
