Northside is lead by a fantastic pastor, Kenny Chin, who has been a very influential person throughout the growth and development of my life. As well as being a pastor, Kenny wrote the epilogue forward in my book, “Be True To Yourself”. He has always believed in me, has given me Godly advise, and always listened when I needed it.


New Hanover

New Hanover Church is my wonderful church body that has given me such love since the day I walked into their doors! They are a church that preaches God’s great word and not a sermon just pleasing the ears of the church. That are a non-judging, warm, fun loving church. I’m grateful every day knowing my family has such a great church foundation! Pastor Phill Spry has a great way of communicating and teaching God’s word to his church family, straight from God’s word. The pastor, the elders and the women of the church are my wonderful church family and a great support group. Their prayers help me through the trials of life!

Each piece of jewelry from Bittersweet Designs is singular and unique, as they are all hand-made in designer Laurie Lenfestey’s studio in Santa Fe. Many ingredients are layered and interwoven in each piece: semi-precious stones, vintage Czech glass, freshwater pearls in soothing grays and warm champagne hues, sterling chains, vintage glass buttons, and ethnic additions, such as Milagros, Ethiopian crosses and telsums. Laurie adds the unexpected to the expected with each creation, in a layered collage of treasures. The result is a line that is elegant and free-spirited, with a subdued bohemian flair.
