When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

I would love to hear from fellow educators how this experience has impacted your life. We all have been touched deeply 10 years ago when this attack on America took place. 

Enjoy learning!
