"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue... Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." ~Proverbs 31:25-26, 30

"Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom, though it cost you all you have, get understanding. Cherish her and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown… Hold on to instruction; do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life." ~Proverbs 4:5-9, 13 (NIV)


I am proud to be a born and raised Tennessean. I appreciate the beautiful tapestry God has created for us here and love to be outside as often as possible through activities such as camping, hiking, fishing, or golfing with my husband, Bobby.  Bobby and I have 3 beautiful children and are active members at West Park Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN, serving throughout Children's Ministry, Community Outreach, and Local Missions. I have always had a strong love for learning, but realized God's calling to teach while working as a bedside nurse. My heart's desire is to be a light for Christ while instilling my passion for education into others.
