Broadway Church of Christ
I am a homeschool mom of two teenage daughters, Maggie, age 17 and Georgia Leigh, age 15. I have been an active member at Broadway Church of Christ in Paducah, Kentucky for over 20 years where my husband, Mike has served as an elder for the last 4 1/2 years. I enjoy mentoring young women and young moms and studying God’s Word. I have a soft spot for children and minister to them through New Pathways for Children and Healing Hands International. I have been a volunteer at both organizations for many years.
Maggie is a 17 year old homeschool student who is a full time student at our local community college. She is also an active member at Broadway and volunteers alongside her mom at New Pathways for Children and Healing Hands International. She enjoys mentoring young girls, water skiing, and spending time with her family at the lake. She plans to pursue a degree in social work with an emphasis in geriatrics and hopes to work at an assisted living facility upon college graduation.
Maggie and I have both have seen a need for a ministry that encourages mothers and daughters to serve God together. We spoke recently at Healing Hands International’s Women of Hope Conference on a panel about Christian mentoring. We enjoyed preparing for that event together and look forward to sharing our ideas with others about the importance of mentoring as well as other biblical topics that will strengthen mother/daughter relationships as well as woman to woman relationships in church families.
I have experience speaking in a variety of situations- women’s conference, small group studies, large group studies, and mistress of ceremonies for a pregnancy crisis center. Maggie has only spoken at Women of Hope but has a natural strength for speaking in front of large groups of people.
