Joanne Eytzen lives in Ferndale, Washington, a dozen miles from the Canadian border, next to the ocean and surrounded by snow-covered mountains on three sides. A Christian first, she is wife to her husband, Roger, of 31 years; mom to three grown children and grandma to two grandbabies who are four months apart. Joanne, who is retired, leads a women's Bible study at her church, Birch Bay Bible Community Church, a USMB congregation in Blaine, Washington. She calls herself a "Jesus girl" and feels privileged to serve through GodWill and help people who need it.
The Christian Leader, published bimonthly by the U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (USMB), connects the USMB family, celebrates our Lord Jesus Christ and cultivates discipleship as understood in the evangelical/Anabaptist tradition.
