“ I enjoy the combination of teaching, counseling and
preaching in my rural community church, alongside my
husband of 33 years. I am an ordained
minister and I have recently retired from Public Education for over 24 years as
a school counselor and bilingual teacher.
I am living testimony that God is a Code Breaker! When your DNA from your
family history tells you that you will only continue
down a path of alcohol, divorce and abuse." God breaks that cycle and declares “I am complete in Him, who is the Head
of all principality and power” Col.
2:10 I can be who God has designed me to be.
