Sparky

Sparky was originally born into Clown Ministry and was led quite naturally into the world of safety.  With the help of the Des Moines Fire Department she developed a nonprofit organization, L.A.F.S. For life, and has been presenting dynamic school assemblies since 1997.

 

Sparky presents 200 – 300 educational shows to over 30,000 children annually in local schools.    Her first love is always ministry where she presents shows and services in camps, churches, praise rallies and wherever else she is called.  In her spare time you can find her visiting churches, local hospitals, nursing and hospice homes.
