Office Administrator: Vickie Schmidt

About:
I have lived in Gillette, this time, since 1985. I graduated from CCHS, graduated from business school, was married and had two children. I became a widow in 1986 and stayed in Gillette and raised my two fantastic kids. My goal for them, as a single mom, was that they would graduate from high school and not go to jail; with God’s help, each of them helped me reach those goals and they have become remarkable adults with awesome families. I have learned to trust and lean on God more than I ever thought possible in these many years of single parenthood. Shopping at garage sales, consignment and thrift stores, and clearance racks brings me great joy and fulfillment.

 

 Testimony: I grew up in a one-sided Christian home with my mother, being the Christian influence. I loved Sunday School and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Protector and was baptized at the age of seven in a horse trough in a very small church in Kansas. God has let me experience many faith building events since he and I became friends and I am very thankful for those tough times and his love and grace to see me through them.
