My Faith Journey
I began my faith journey at a very young age, attending church with my grandmother and mother. I was baptized as a young adult at Zion Baptist church and was a member of the teen and youth choir for several years. After joining FMBC over 20 years ago, I have served formally and informally in various capacities in the church, beginning my faith journey formally as part of the HR committee. Last year, God led me to a higher calling to serve as a Trustee for FMBC and Co-chair the Human Resources Committee. One of my favorite quotes: “Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. Author: Rabindranath Tagore
I have been married for 34 years and have two beautiful millennials aged 26 and 30 as well as a granddaughter I adore. It has been especially rewarding to watch my granddaughter grow in Christ at the age of 3 and for me to be instrumental in guiding her faith and spiritual journey.
