I grew up in the small town of Marlow, Oklahoma. I was so blessed to have parents that took me to church and taught me about God’s love. When I was in third grade, I gave my life to Christ. My parents sang in the praise team and when I stepped out of my pew to walk forward at church, my Dad was overcome with emotion. He sat down in his choir chair and cried tears of joy into his hands. What a wonderful example of a father’s love! Thank you Mom and Dad for loving and praying for me! How much more does God, our Heavenly Father, love us?
Both of my parents, along with 6 aunts and uncles, were teachers, so it was no surprise that I chose a career in education. I taught fifth grade in Edmond for 5 years before having our first child. I spent the next 8 years teaching in our Weekday program here at Quail Springs Baptist Church. My wonderful husband, Grant, and I have been married for 15 years. We joined QSBC in 2000. God has blessed us with three children, Layn, Gage, and Kenley.
HOPE FOR MY MINISTRY
I am so humbled and blessed to serve as Director of Weekday Ministries. My hope is that God would use me and our entire Weekday staff to make an impact in the lives of each family in our program. Please join me in praying for about 165 children and their families that come through our building every week, many of which have no church home. Pray that we constantly seek God’s direction for building relationships and meeting the needs of these precious families. Pray for us as we strive to teach these children about God’s amazing love.
