I am a native Texan, born and raised in Texas. My mom and dad were wonderful parents who taught my sister and me good morals and ethics. Although my dad was raised in a Pentecostal church and my mother in a Baptist Church, we did not attend church on a regular basis. As a child, I loved Sunday School and especially enjoyed the Bible Stories on the flannel graph board. But, it was really my mother who introduced me to Jesus at an early age and mentored me through my developmental years. By the age of 5, I could recite the names of the books of the Bible. Precious memories! I gave my life to the Lord when I was 10 years old and was baptized in a little Baptist Church in Houston, Texas.
Fast forward, after years of rebellion and the birth of my youngest child, a thought came to me that I needed to raise my children in church. I joined a little church, rededicated my life to the Lord and was baptized a second time. It is a decision I have never regretted and I have never looked back. I have grown in the Lord and have served Him in many capacities, Children’s Church leader, Youth Leader, Women’s Ministry, Foot Soldiers (street ministry), Nursing Home, and others. I had the privilege to Pastor a small church with my husband and, after he went home to be with the Lord, I continued our dream of an adult education high school. This school enabled high school dropouts to earn their high school diploma. I also continued my education at Calvary Theological Seminary and advanced my studies at Cornerstone University. By God’s grace and direction, I moved to Lindale in 2016 and have started a new chapter in my life. The Lord is so faithful and kind, and I am so thankful He has brought me to CCF, a fellowship that truly reaches up, reaches in, and reaches out.
I have two handsome sons, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and three beautiful grandchildren. I am extremely blessed.
