Administrative Assistant, Andrea Dillie, ts@terraceshores.org

Andrea grew up in Oshkosh and has quite the different background from the rest of the staff here at Terrace Shores! Andrea grew up in a family that was consumed by addiction. By the time Andrea was fourteen she was doing drugs everyday and was suicidal. It was only by the grace of God that she survived! In 1995 she met Tim Dillie, a native of Markesan, and they were married in 1998. It was through Tim and his faith that Andrea came to faith in Jesus. Tim and Andrea have two sons, Tristan and Gavin. Today, Andrea is so grateful for the undeserved love and protection God gave her during those dark days and for the many blessings she has. More than anything, Andrea wants her story to give others going through dark times and addiction a hope for a future. Click here to see Andrea’s video testimony.
