Mrs. Lisa VanDyken

Professional Biography 

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!

Personal Biography 

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!

Philosophical Biography

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.
