Wendy Wheeler

Wendy has been an active supporter of Family Promise since the Lawrence affiliate was first created. She has served as co-coordinator with a fantastic team at First Baptist Church for several years and truly believes in the important work and community connections made through Family Promise Lawrence. 

Wendy is proud to have been a public-school teacher and is now enjoying the busyness of ‘retirement.’ She is the mother of two daughters who live in Lawrence with their families and are also supporters of FPL. She has three grandchildren, the oldest of whom has already started volunteering with her at Family Promise, cooking and playing with kids. 

Wendy grew up in SE Kansas and has been in the Lawrence area since 1989. She graduated with a BA from Ottawa University and a Masters in Education from Baker University. She has been active at First Baptist Church Lawrence for many years and is passionate about food insecurity in our community, which has led to coordinating the FBC Sharing Pantry with a wonderful team of volunteers. She enjoys cooking, sewing, gardening and hanging out with her grands.
