I was born in Ft Worth, Tx, but grew up mostly in Denton, Tx. I was saved when I was 14 yrs old, and I will never forget that day. Because I made a genuine decision to have Jesus Christ come into my heart and life at a young age, I realized how important it is to teach children about the love of Christ and His gift of salvation. My favorite verse is Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in a way he should go, and when he is old, he will will not depart from it.” Nothing brings more joy to my heart than being around children and watching them learn about the love that Christ has for them.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Bible and Early Education from Arlington Baptist College in 1998. I married my college sweetheart, Jason, in 1997. God has blessed us with four beautiful children: Jase, Jake, Jorja, and Julia.
I have been on staff at Shady Grove Baptist Church since the summer of 2008. What I enjoy most about our church is the genuine love that our members have for one another, and for the incredible love that they have in Christ.
