I grew up in a loving Christian home was saved during Vacation Bible School at age 9. I have grown twin daughters and 8 grandchildren. My family is one of the greatest pleasures of my life. I worked in the secular world for 20 years and then was blessed with the privilege of becoming a Ministry Assistant at Hudson First Baptist Church where I worked for 18 years. I have now been retired for 4 years and love it. I have always loved NCBSA and am honored to be serving in this group of wonderful people!
I was born in Jacksonville, NC (about an hour North of Wilmington). I was raised in a Christian home and was saved at a young age. I honestly don't remember a time in my life that I didn't know Jesus. I praise God every day for the many blessings He has given me and my family.
I am currently serving as Secretary at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Jacksonville, NC. I've been married to my husband, John, for 21 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Carly (20) and Emma (16). As you know, being a Christian doesn't mean that we live perfect lives. There are days we struggle; days we get it so very wrong, but we know that when we step back and rely on God, He will meet our every need according to His perfect will and in His own time. We simply have to be patient and trust Him to do it.
I am humbled to have been elected your President-Elect, and then your President. I don't know all that it entails, but I know God will enable me to accomplish His will through this wonderful organization.
NCBMA Second Vice-President
