Mildred Gerner lives in Omaha, NE with her husband, Pastor Leroy Gerner, and has walked closely with him in ministry for 36 years. She has three adult sons and daughter-in-loves, four beautiful grandchildren, and a fifth due August ’22, all of who refer to her affectionately as GrandMil. An enduring occupation for Mildred is learning about Christian spiritual formation, communicating it with others, and listening to their stories. A few of her favorite things are southern cuisine, summertime, dramas set in England, a brisk 2-mile walk, Ole Miss Rebels football, lounging on a beach, and her simple, homebody lifestyle with Leroy.
