I am excited to be a part of COFA. An outreach that combines our love for God and the outdoors. A great combination!  I enjoy spending time with other outdoor enthusiasts and an opportunity to share the gospel with others.

 

The Women’s Outreach of COFA is planning a lot fun and interesting outdoor and outdoor related events. All women, whether Christian or un-churched, are welcome and invited to attend all events.  Sign up for email updates and check cofausa.org for upcoming events. I am looking forward to our time together and good experiences. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any reason at (303) 816-1104 or kathyl@cofausa.org

 

I connected with God later in my life, about 25 years ago. For many reasons, I did not believe He existed. I attended church once as a child and God was not discussed in my home. As a mother of a 2 year old, I thought it was my parental responsibility to expose him to church. He thrived in this setting, talked about God all of the time and looked forward to attending every Sunday. While he was in his Sunday School class, I listened to many sermons about this incredibly amazing, wonderful and loving God. I also began researching on my own to know more.

 

My disbelief continued for many years. Throughout this time, I thought about how nice it would be if He was real. It was like reading fiction and developing a great fondness for one of the characters. One evening, for the first time in my life, I surprisingly cried out to Him for His help. He responded by making it clear without any doubt that He did exist and our relationship began.

 

Since that evening, each and every day of my life is intertwined in my relationship with Him as is my over flowing gratitude for more reasons than I can write at this time. I know what it is to live life without Him and with Him. The difference is like that of night and day and incredibly good! One of my passions is this relationship.

 

One of my other passions is the outdoors. I love to be outside and experience the outdoors. I strive for daily walks or hikes. I have been an avid hiker for many years and have enjoyed and participated in many outdoor activities. For the last 5 years or so my focus has been in hiking, gold panning, metal detecting and climbing with my son. This year I am adding more ATV rides and outings with COFA and the Women’s Outreach of COFA!
