Terri Dill

For as long as she can remember Terri has had a passion for the theater and technical theater. As a child, she even wanted to live in the Swiss Family Robison tree house. Terri wrote her first play when she was eight. She would set up the stage in the garage and bribe other neighborhood kids into participating either on stage or as an audience member. It wasn't until 2004 that she decided to try playwriting again. When she sat down at the computer and started to type she says it felt like she was the secretary and God was telling her what to write. After having been the director Drama Ministry since 1999 and teaching Sunday School for 30 years, she was given the chance to work at her church as the Ministry Director. All the jobs have been very rewarding and they have certainly played a big part in her personal faith journey. For the past 35 years, she and her husband Ron have lived in Fort Morgan, CO. They have two grown children and five grandchildren. Their family is very close and they do many things together. Her son Brandon has even written music for many of her plays, and they collaborated to create "In Light of Everything" also available through Eldridge.
