I have known and loved Jesus for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, my mom showed me what it meant to know Jesus and follow Him. She was a teacher...she might be to blame for my choosing to become a professor (the best professional decision ever!) God has been faithful to me in all things. He has carried me through the most difficult times and given me the most incredible gifts in this life: my husband, kids, family and friends - the great hope of Heaven for eternity.

My Life

Favorite Quote

Matthew 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
