Wendy Graham Hadley, Director of Children's Ministries
Wendy and her family began worshiping at Caswell Springs in 2004. She and her husband, James, were married in 1990, and have two children, Meghan and Matthew. Her family is the greatest blessing in her life.
Wendy grew up as the middle grandchild, which meant she was too young for the older kids, but too old for the younger kids. She found her place playing with the babies and helping in the kitchen, which are still two of her favorite things. As a teenager, she was led to work in children’s ministries and began teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Her love of children is evident, and she believes them to be God’s blessings. Everyone gets a hug each week from Mrs. Wendy!
Her family is active in sports, school and life’s usual craziness. Together they enjoy watching movies and going to the river. Her interests include scrapbooking, making cards, cooking and baking, and she loves to surprise people with goodies from her kitchen. She enjoys reading Christian historical fiction as well as other genres.
Her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
