My Story

My story starts with the awesome opportunity of growing up in a Christian home which included regularly attending Sunday school and church as well as either attending Christian schools or being home-schooled. That foundation provided a sturdy foundation built on God’s Word.

As a three and half year old I went forward during a service to receive Christ; however, approaching upper elementary/junior high years, I began to doubt whether I truly received Christ as my personal Savior. During a revival service, I determined that my pride was not worth spending eternity in hell. I went forward at the altar call and simply asked God to, “Save me!”  God began to deal with me about following Him in baptism to show what I had professed. I also noticed that sins that I once did that did not bother me, now bothered me a lot! God had started the “perfecting” (completing) process in my life.

My heartbeat for Christian education took root at the beginning of my formal education. My parents committed to Christian education as an unwavering option when I entered kindergarten. Through the years I either attended a Christian school or was homeschooled depending on our family’s life circumstances. After graduating from high school, I attended Pensacola Christian College and earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a sacred music minor. After receiving my degree, I taught in several different Christian schools in the Indianapolis area. Those experiences ranged from small to large schools, combination classes to all-inclusive classes, older established schools to a school that was relatively new. Each of these experiences provided a foundation to help prepare me for the ministry God led me to here at Harvest. After marrying my husband Frank Weasner in 2009, I moved to the area and taught at Harvest as the 4th-6th grade teacher until 2013 when I took a leave of absence to stay-at-home with our son Drew. In 2012, I had the opportunity to receive specialized training for Dyslexia. In 2017, I began my master’s degree in Educational Learning through Maranatha Baptist University. During my time as a stay-at-home mom, I have also done occasional substitute teaching in the public school. My substitute experiences have allowed me to see first-hand the difference between Christian education and public education and the valuable opportunity we have as Christian educators to present academic knowledge from a Biblical worldview.
