With God’s enablement, my desire is to make Jesus Christ known in a greater way. Through evangelism, discipleship, mentoring, and biblical counseling, I strive to honor Christ and offer comfort to souls. I am passionate about encouragement and equipping women to know God and His Word deeply.
My education includes Principles of Biblical Counseling through BMATS, Track One-Fundamentals and Track Two-Advanced Theology training by Association of Certified Biblical Counselors’ CDT. Further education for Biblical Counseling is through Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. My certificate for Christian Ministry is also through Southeastern. Currently, you can find me teaching theology classes, Bible workshops, and leading an inductive Bible study class in my local church. I also enjoy mentoring, counseling, and leading seminars from home.
In addition to serving women in my community, my church has graciously afforded me opportunities to join the ongoing work of global missions. I am grateful our God has allowed me to expand my worldview beyond the cultural boundaries of the Arkansas River valley.
My freelance writing has been published in magazines and newspapers but for the most part, my blog is where I now write. It is common for me to go through cycles of studying Scripture, reading, teaching, and then writing as a means of offering what I have gleaned to a broader audience. As a digital resource, I repeatedly share links with friends as supplement to my teaching and counseling.
Wife to Russell for 44 years and a grandmother to five, I have celebrated joys and weathered storms all the while doing life in Christian community. I’ve witnessed God move in astounding ways, both in my personal life and the lives of others. I’m now living out the benefits of decision making with a determined priority of God’s wider purpose. I’ve defined my faith and make life choices reflecting those values.
