I was saved when I was five years old. My grandmother
prepared the soil of my heart for salvation. My
kindergarten teacher added water through her life
and Bible lessons. She had a spirit about her that was
contagious! One day, in Bible, she was talking about
the “broad” road and the “narrow” road and how the
narrow road lead to heaven. I kept thinking about
that. I could not get it out of my mind. I was so afraid
that I would not be able to “find” the narrow road.
Some time later, I finally realized that I was a sinner
and that Jesus had died for me.
Teaching first grade at Lancaster Baptist School is
the passion of my life! I absolutely love it! My students
have taught me so much about faith and compassion.
It is such a blessing for me to see students, who are
now teenagers and young adults, who
have a passion for the Lord and desire
to serve Him with their lives. Some of
my first students are now studying at
God has taught me that He is such
a loving Father. Everything I need is
found in Him. He has such a wonderful
plan for each part of my life and truly
dreams more for me than I could ever
dream for myself! My favorite verses
are, “My soul, wait thou only upon
God; for my expectation is from him.”
“And now, behold, the king
walketh before you: and I am old and
grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are
with you: and I have walked before
you from my childhood unto this day.”
(1 Samuel 12:2).
I will forever be grateful to Pastor
Chappell and West Coast Baptist
College for the eternal impact they
have had on my life! Before coming
here, I did not know what servant
leadership was. First I heard it taught
from the pulpit and then saw it lived
out. Pastor Chappell and so many of
my teachers reached out to me
personally and made such a
difference in my life. They are a daily
visual to me of how Christ would
have me live. They are my heroes!
