Marilyn Seeger, Tri-Cities Lighthouse President
I was born and raised in S. Calif. and lived there until 1982 when my husband decided to go back into the Navy. Eventually we ended up in Bremerton which was just a hop, skip and jump over the mountains to the Tri-cities. We had moved to Mare Island, CA when I was first introduced to Aglow in 1984. Everywhere we moved there was an Aglow group to make the transitions a new Aglow experience. When we moved to Pasco in 2000 to be near our daughter, there was not a local Aglow so I went back to work in a library but soon found myself in children’s ministries which was quite a change from women’s ministries. In 2007 Aglow Tri-cities began and I became part of that team. In the past few years my daughter died of cancer and I took care of my elderly mom until she went home to Jesus in Aug. of this year. Now I am beginning a new phase of my life watching for new wonders to unfold.
I am a wife of 24 years and a proud mother of three wonderful children who have blessed me with 9 wonderful grandchildren. I was born again in 1993 and have enjoyed serving my Lord as a worship leader, deaconess church secretary and in Spokane evening Aglow. Secretary and President. The desire of my heart is to walk in the presence and love of my Abba Papa and to be a sweet fragrance unto HIm willing to serve where and when He calls me to.
I have been in Aglow for about 21 years. I started attending Aglow with my Mom in Calif. I have served in multiple roles. Hostess, President of Spokane Evening Aglow for 10 years, served on area team. I have been married to a wonderful man for 45 years, have 2 great kids and 5 wonderful grandkids.

She and her husband of 56 years go to Surprise, Arizona during the winter months where she attends Aglow and works with the Healing Rooms.
Kim Veenhuizen , NEW Colville VP Public Relations
Kim has been married for 35 years and has two grown boys, 3 grandchildren (2 girls and 1 boy). My second son is married to a wonderful young lady and we havea great relationship. Kim has lived in the area for 8 years and is a student getting her degree in Early childhood Education and Development. For the last 2-1/2 years she has been a foster mom for 2 little girls.
Deedee Lipp, Wenatchee Lighthouse President
Deedee has been married for 23 years. I lived in Wenatchee the whole time. I have four children. 21, 19, 18 and 9. We are self employed. We bought out our parents pest control company and added home inspections to it about 15 years ago. I also work for the school districts as a substitute teacher. I love children and want to help influence them for Jesus.
I have prayed with moms in touch for 13 years and was an area coordinator for prayer for our schools. I still pray once a week and lead our group, which is now, moms in prayer ministry. I was first invited, by Margaret, to an Aglow mtg in June 2010. I had such a burden for my son, Kellen at the time and God really met me at that mtg. He healed Kellen then as well. I immediately knew that this was the kind of ministy I wanted to be involved in. I want to touch peoples lives in this way by Holy Spirit too. I started on the team as Finance Dev. then two months later. Aglow is a huge stretch for me, honestly. I am challenged and uncomfortable at times. I haven’t yet really prophesied and seen visions/pictures or heard from God regularly. It comes such a little bit at a time. But God is changing me from the inside to be so in LOVE with Him. I want to be in His presence all the time. I want to know Him more. And become more obedient. I will be moving in the dance and the prophetic and healing. And I am excited about my relationship with Jesus and our Wenatchee Aglow.
It was fairly recently that I heard the Lord call me to serve with Aglow, and I am excited to see what He has in store. I actually attended meetings as a little girl while my mom served on a local team, so in a way it is part of my spiritual heritage, and that would make me a second generation Aglow woman. The three mandates given to Aglow (male/female reconciliation, Islam, and Israel) are all things the Lord has highlighted for me in my heart, so it is exciting to me to be a part of a ministry with the same directives. I have really enjoyed getting to know the women who are involved, and I look forward to being a part of the things the Lord has planned for our area.
Georgi Lockhart, VP of Administration, Tri-Cities
I was born twice in my hometown of Bay City Michigan. The second time was on October 25, 1983 when I was baptized as an adult and accepted Jesus as my Savior. I had been searching for God and He made it easy for me to find Him when I started looking in the right places. In the course of my life, I have been married three times. My first husband of about 20 years died of a long illness. Through this union I have one stepson, Ed. My second husband and I were married 5 years until he left me for another. But God had blessed me with a stepdaughter, Kim, son-in-law, Ron, a grandson, Cameron, and Grace, my granddaughter. This young family each had a part in the wedding to my third husband. In March of 2006, I married George, and I moved out here to Washington, where he and three his sons lived. George is also from my hometown but I didn’t meet him there. Our story is truly one that God has orchestrated because of all the similarities in each of our lives. God brought me to Aglow through a friend I met here in the Tri-Cities. I had not heard of Aglow in Michigan. I was asked to be a part of Aglow near the end of 2009. Being the VP of Financial Development has been a challenge for me but a rewarding one. God has changed the speed of my spiritual growth through Aglow; it seems faster than back in 1983 when I was looking for Him. These last few years have been amazing and I look forward with excitement to see what God will do next in the lives of my brothers and sisters in Aglow but also in me and my own family’s lives.

Susan Boisselle is a woman of enthusiasm, joy and fortitude. She is many faceted and lives life abundantly. Giving it all she has, she walks in obedience doing what she sees the Father in heaven doing and speaking forth His words.
It was during the Christmas season as a child that she first experienced the presence and holiness of the Lord. Without any human assistance, she entered into worship followed with repentance. It was at this time that she became born again and began her love affair with the Lord. Since then, Susan has experienced other encounters with the Kingdom of God.
She was introduced to Women’s Aglow as a young woman when her mother took her to an Aglow meeting. There she wept as she again found the presence of God she had experienced as a child and teenager and turned her life around. Aglow was momentous in her life and helped transform, teach, and establish her in a godly foundation. Today, at the urging of a friend, she has helped birth a new Aglow in the Yakima Valley.
Susan is currently enjoying her 35th anniversary of life with her husband, Jim, and raising the last half of her twelve children. She has been involved in teaching both adults and children, loves to worship, and participate in intercessory prayer. She has lived a life hidden away from the public until now and marvels at what the Lord is doing with her.
