I am a follower of Jesus, blessed by a great family: a wonderful husband, two remarkable grown children, a terrific son-in-law, two precious granddaughters, and two mischievous Westies. God has given me a love for his Word, for travel, for books, for fun, for missions, and for following his call to teach, write, and lead. Serving God and his people has brought me far more joy than I ever expected or imagined!
I was honored to serve for ten years on church staffs, as Director of the Women’s Ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church and then as Minister of Women and Marriage at Northwest Bible Church, both in the Dallas area.
I received a Master of Arts in Christian Education with a focus on Women’s Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Effective Ministries to Women.
