“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6


Born in Missouri, I was raised in Arkansas and moved to the Memphis area before transplanting to Florida in 2000.  I served in the Village Baptist financial and administration office seven years before leaving in 2010 to assist in the opening of the Destin LifeWay Christian Store. After two years as assistant manager of the LifeWay Store, I returned in 2012 to Village as Assistant to the Senior Pastor. I also serve in the Village Missions programs and act as Events Coordinator for the church along with backup support to other departments. My husband, Ray, and I moved to Destin from the Memphis area with our two daughters; Amanda is now married to Nick, they live in Destin and they have two daughters, Ashley recently moved to Chicago to start a career.  I feel blessed that the Lord has opened doors and allows me to serve Him on the beautiful Emerald Coast and with the Village Baptist family.


My hope for Village is for us to be a body of Christ that shows compassion and grace, to be “one” in the mind of Christ, and reflect God in all we do as His disciples.
