Thompson Falls remained her home until she graduated in 1979. Lana found Easthaven in 1983 and made it her church home. It was at Easthaven that Lana met and married the love of her life, Mike Gardner. They have three grown children: Brandi and husband Jeff, Jeremy and wife Lindsey, Nicholas and wife Alyssa, along with their adopted daughter, Jasmine.
