About My Family

I have been married for 50 years. I have three children and four grandchildren ranging in age from 2 to 27. Education was my chosen field, and I taught in a variety of elementary, secondary and college classes. I ended my career as an education specialist for the National Archives.

I have a husband who encouraged me to teach, write and travel as opportunities arose. I have traveled to all 50 states. I went to China and South Korea as a teacher, Ethiopia and Nicaragua for missions and Iceland for fun.

About My Ministry

I am a disaster relief chaplain. My first disaster relief experience was in Houston with Hurricane Harvey. I have served as a chaplain for at least nine different disasters.

Now that I am isolated due to my husband's health and COVID-19, I writing an e-book called, "How to Trust in God During a Disaster."

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 the using agency 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 guidance on writing just the right words that will touch, help and lead disaster victims to the Lord. Pray for disaster victims to have opportunities to read my e-book and have the gospel speak to their fearful hearts. Pray for victims and their families who have been touched by the coronavirus. Pray that soon we will have a vaccine against the virus. Pray that we recognize that the people who are isolating because of their age or health are people who are victims of the disaster.
