LaFollette church of Christ
I was born in Oneida, NY (2/23/50) to Violet and Norman Dart. They were some of the very few Christians living in New York State at that time, and our small congregation was the oldest in existence in that area. After graduating from high school I attended SUNY at Binghamton, then went on to graduate from David Lipscomb College. There I met my husband of almost 43 years, Jim Wesson and so began the journey! After Jim’s graduation he began preaching fulltime and we lived in several different places — including several years in the northeast which is somewhat of a mission area. Over the years we learned a lot, often by trial and error and making mistakes!
One of the great joys of our life has been our children; a son, Peter and daughter, Rebecca. We struggled with raising them to be first and foremost Christians, not “the preacher’s kids”! Both children are married — Peter preaches fulltime and Rebecca and her husband (and baby!) are missionaries in the Pacific. Over the years I have taught children of all ages, from babies to adult women. Many times I’ve found it necessary to develop my own material and create visual aids. ( I have a series for teen girls called “Going the Distance”, a study on the committed Christian life — available on request) This past year I was privileged to speak at a ladies day at Rockwood, TN on the theme “Counting Your Blessings” and “Making Your Blessings Count”. If this is a way I can encourage other ladies, I would welcome the opportunity !
