BECKY DAYE

BECKY DAYE

CUSTOMER SERVICE COORDINATOR

Becky Daye gets to do all of the things she loves on a nearly daily basis: reading, writing, exploring Western New York with her family, Bible study, watching movies, making music and checking items off of her Dayedreams list. But it is in the mundane things of life, the laundry, the dishes, the dodging of sword fights, the stepping on Legos, the changing of diapers and the dealing with tween drama, where she is reminded of her desperate need for Jesus. Becky is a pastor’s kid, a pastor’s wife and a mom to four pastor’s kids so her life is a series of sermon illustrations.

TRENA TURNER
