Sandy provides counseling for people, both here at the Vineyard and from the community, ministering emotional healing to the brokenness that all of us experience. She walks alongside them, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to bring healing and freedom. Sandy has a passion for gourmet cooking and is well-known for her 7-course meals. Some of her greatest moments have been watching the delight on the faces of her guests as they experience all the dishes and their flavors. No OOH is too loud. One of the items on her “bucket list” is to travel to France and prepare a 5-course meal with a French chef. After she eats her way out of France, it’s off to Tuscany, Italy. Rollie, her husband of 31 years, and Sandy enjoy spending as much time as they can with their three grandchildren.
