About Mrs. Halfhill:

I was married here at St Mark’s in 1983 to my husband Bill. We have 2 sons. I love cooking, canning, grocery shopping and of course, a full pantry. When I am not in the kitchen you will find me working on a jigsaw puzzle, cryptograms, sudoku or a variety of other mind games.

Favorite Bible verse:

  • “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Message from Mrs. Halfhill:

“As Corinthians tells us, God will never burden us with more than we can bear. Our biggest struggles are often our greatest blessings.
