About My Family

I was a hairdresser for 18 years. Tim drives his own semi trucks for Murdock Trucking. He hauls corn and grain for a living.

About My Ministry

I am an SBC-endorsed Blue Hat Chaplain with Southern Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief. I really am blessed through Jesus to be able to help others. I really like using the “BLESS” method when I first come in contact with a person who is in need or dealing with trauma.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites, and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless, and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard-to-reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by their institution and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray people will come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray more people will become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain’s ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
