Favorite Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:12 "Let no men despise you for your youth, but set the example for believers in speech,

Favorite Sports Teams: N/A I do not have one, but if you ask my husband, I a sure he could tell you his! ;-)

When we lived in Fort Worth, I did enjoy going to Ranger's baseball games

but I only enjoy watching in person.

Hobbies: Spending time with my family, organizing homes, bow fishing, sitting in a deer stand,

and sleeping.....can that be considered a hobby?! Before I had my own children my all-time

favorite hobby was babysitting, but now I have three very active boys of my own to keep up with.

Conversion Experience: I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and family where fulfilling God's purpose in life

was my reason for living. I attended church my whole life and was a good kid so to speak; however, I was not saved

until the age of eleven. I was saved at "Heaven's Gates Hell's Flames" drama at Calvary Baptist Church in Ruston, LA

on September 11, 2000. My salvation was undeniable. I knew my life would no longer be the same. I began to pray

for God to reveal His purpose for my life.

Calling to Ministry: At the age of twelve, my home church (Magnolia Baptist Church in Saline, LA), was hosting a revival.

One night during the revival I felt God calling me to the ministry. At the time of humbling myself and accepting His call,

I did not know entirely or a specific role He had in store. I simply said, "Yes". During my Senior year of college,

God gave me a desire and called me to attend seminary to pursue my Master's Degree in Christian Education

with a concentration in Children's Ministry.
