I was born and raised in Tyler. I grew up living across the street from my church. My family literally walked across the street every Sunday morning and back again on Sunday nights. I feel so blessed to have been raised by a family that loved the Lord. God has been number one in my heart my entire life and I feel this is the best gift I ever received from my parents. I lead our Chapel services for the Early Education Center each Monday morning. Sharing God’s word with over 100 small children is an awesome way to start the week. I feel passionate about showing young children and their families how incredible God’s love is and I pray it is a small seed that I am able to plant in their heart.
