If anyone has been around the world and back, I have. I grew up in Texas, went to Oklahoma Baptist University for college, married a guy from Daytona Beach and began working in youth ministry in 1995. My husband and I have had the pleasure of serving at Flomich Avenue Baptist Church in Holly Hill, Florida; First Baptist Wasilla in Wasilla, Alaska; Madison Street Baptist Church in Starke, Florida, and have been currently serving at Blackshear Place Baptist Church (BPBC) in Flowery Branch, Georgia. We’ve been in the Georgia area for 10-years serving in Youth Ministry for 8 years and in Men’s Ministry for 2 years.

Even though the Lord led me to get a Youth Ministry degree in college, He has had me dabble in a lot of different areas. I’ve had the pleasure of ministering to runaways in the middle of downtown Oklahoma City, worked in the mental health field for 6 years, child protective services for 2 years, secondary business education for 11 years, as a sexual-integrity speaker for 5 years, to owning my own business for the past year. The Lord has allowed me the privilege of writing daily devotionals since 2011, to pen How to Come Before the King (a study on the life of Esther), to creating an online bible study forum for BPBC, while teaching others how to live the gluten-free life on Wednesday nights.

My husband and I have 3 children. Our 20-year-old daughter is getting a degree in Biochemistry, our 16-year-old daughter is in her junior year of high school, and our 8-year-old son keeps all of us on our toes. We have the sweetest Doberman you’ll ever meet, but he makes his presence known to strangers. We have so many food allergies in our home, I have to make almost everything from scratch. We have our own garden, can some of our food, while my husband hunts and fishes to provide for the family. We’re a jack-of-all-trades and can figure just about anything out. If there isn’t a way around it, we’ll find another way to do it.

The Lord has led me to start Providential Living to start teaching others what it really means to live the providential life. Having come from a violent, abusive home, I learned early on not to trust anyone. I led a destructive life of using drugs, drinking, and unhealthy relationships until God got my attention when I almost died from a drug overdose. From that point on He has had to reteach me how to think, feel, and act. He has had me walk through PTSD, do the 12-step program from Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, go through a Rehab Center, live in a halfway house across the street from a crack-house, and learn why we do the things we do. If anyone knows what it’s like to overcome all odds, I do. And I want to show others that nothing is impossible for God.
