She and her husband Dave and their 3 children Hannah, Rachel and Joshua started New Creations in Ramsey 3 ½ years ago. All she can say is what am amazing journey this has been. She has loved getting to know the children and their parents and extended family. They are all family to her. If someone is crying, she will find out why and try to make it better. She has had over 40 years’ experience in working with children and their families with being a former children’s pastor and foster parent. She attended the University of Northwestern in Roseville for Christian Education and Music. That is where she and Dave met. She can never remember a time that God and His church was not the most important thing in her life. Her life verse has proven to be true over and over again throughout all of her life; Proverbs 3:5 & 6 (NLT) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Franchise Owner / Co-Director: Dave C
Mr Dave is one of the first names the children here at New Creations learn to say. It might sound like “misser dabe” at first but it doesn’t matter to Mr Dave, he eats it up and makes sure everyone has a big squeeze from one of their favorite guys. He has taught in our toddler room, waddler room and infant room. One day he made a note and hung on the door that said office of Mr Dave, attendance, accounting, food service, human resources, operations and anything else that needs to be done. He is the jack of all trades and the master of most especially loving children. He is proud of the center here at Ramsey and the outstanding faithful staff he employs but his heart is loving the kiddos that come through the door each and every day. He has partnered with MaryJo all the years of doing ministry in churches to children and their families. He and MaryJo have been foster parents to over 30 children and has made more bottles and changed more diapers than most anyone. His favorite Bible verses are: Proverbs 18:22 NLT “A man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord.” And “Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.’’
