    I was born on July 28, 1981 in Tulsa, Ok. I lived in Oklahoma for my entire childhood and teen years.  In 2010 I surrendered to vocational ministry and began seminary at Liberty University and later transferred to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In 2016 I earned a Master of Arts in Christian Education with a concentration in Biblical Counseling. Matthew 22:37-39 has been my guide post in life as I make my journey with Christ in this Christian life. My desire is to love God with my heart, soul, and mind while loving the people of this world and teaching them what God has graciously taught me in the message of the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ.
