I’m just a normal girl trying to live each moment for Jesus. I am a preacher’s wife and a young mom, Bible teacher, and student. I have an unhealthy addiction to coffee and I’m a secret reality TV show junkie.
Jesus changed my life at the ripe age of 8 and has continually shown Himself each step of the way. I was blessed to have a mom and dad who love Jesus and made it a priority to surround me by God’s Word and God’s people. I have such fond memories of sitting on Brother Tommy’s lap and listening to the hymns of old wondering why everyone sang in such funny English.
I was really just an average girl. I wasn’t homecoming queen, or the girl who always had a date to the dance, but I absolutely loved, and still love, softball. Most of my time was spent practicing and preparing for the season. My dream was to go on and play college ball and God allowed me the opportunity to sign with The University of Texas at Dallas. After only a semester of being there I knew He was calling me to something different, completely different. At the age of 18 I “surrendered to ministry.” I say that loosely, because in my head that meant I had to jump on a ship for Africa and become a missionary.
Instead of Africa, I ended up at The Criswell College and took on my first girl’s ministry in my home church. I met and married my husband Josh who has been my best friend and ministry partner for 7 years now. Josh is the lead pastor at Sache’s First Baptist Church and I have the privilege of heading up the women’s ministry. If you are in the DFW area we would love for you to join us.
I’m a mom to 2 incredible little boys, Haddon Eli who is 3 and Leland Asher who is 18 months. Hopefully within the next year we will be welcoming our third son home from the Democratic Republic of Congo. You can follow our journey at HisOwnRoom.org.
So life these days are lived out changing lots of diapers, lunches at Chil-Fil-A, talks about church and ministry, but most importantly snatching up every opportunity God lays out; whether thats teaching a small group, speaking at an event, being a tired mom, or picking up the lady walking alongside the road. Each day He gives, I want to be counted faithful.
