Bridgewood Church of Christ
North Richland Hills, Texas
Serving God and my family has always been my priority. I was a stay-at-home mom for 13 years and only went back to teaching when my husband, Gary, had an opportunity to go to graduate school and our youngest was in second grade. I have taught mathematics at Abilene Christian School, Fort Worth Christian School, a public high school, and recently retired as assistant professor of mathematics at Tarrant County College. Besides my degrees in mathematics and English, I have done graduate work at ACU in Bible and counseling. When Gary was on the faculty of the Brown Trail School of Preaching in Bedford, TX, I directed the wives’ program, teaching Life of Christ, Acts, and several other courses. I have spoken for several ladies’ days, retreats, and lectures including the Ft. Worth Lectures, Mid-Atlantic Retreat and Cold Harbor Road Lectures in Virginia, the Connecticut Women’s Retreat, Come Fill Your Cup Retreats in Denver and Oklahoma, and the European Christian Women’s Retreat in Spyer, Germany. I am the author of 2 books in a series, “The Drama of Redemption.” Book 1 is “Walking with Jesus from Creation to Canaan” and book 2 is “Walking with Jesus through the Prophets.” I’ve spoken on various Bible topics, so it is hard to pick a favorite. The unity and integrity of the Scriptures, fulfilled prophecy, and the nature of Jesus are topics I see as having a major impact on our lives in this “post-modern” culture, because we become like the God (or gods) we worship. I believe the Word is too precious and my time is too short to waste it on “fluffy” stuff. Since Gary is now the coordinator of the graduate studies with the Bear Valley School’s Extension Program, I have had the opportunity to teach women, children, and the lost in places like Ukraine, Tanzania, Paraguay, Peru, etc. We have been married 53 years and have 2 children.
