When Aleece isn’t in the kitchen with her family, she’s at the Christian Youth Theatre with her family, and when she isn’t there, she’s running Redeemer Children’s Ministry, Special Events, and Administration. She grew up outside of Matteson, IL and came to know Jesus at age 7 (which is not a boring salvation story). Aleece is well suited for her role because of two factors, her love for Jesus (which she says has been bolstered by Redeemer through the years, and by the book The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney), and her several degrees, which include (but impressively aren’t limited to) B.S. in Elementary Education and M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from National Lewis University.
Lastly, a description of Aleece would be wholly incomplete if it failed to mention her deep affection for her husband, Chip, and her dear daughters, Tahlia and Ella.
