Kensington Woods, Hattiesburg, MS
A now empty nester, with 2 grown children and a “daughter-in-“love”. I have helped my husband serve as an elder and a deacon in roles that have included youth campaigns, Exposure youth camp and served as a cook at Maywood Christian Camp. Participation in mission trips to Tanzania, Africa where I have taught ladies and children is important to me. Writing children’s curriculum, teaching children and ladies classes, and speaking at ladies events are ways I love to utilize my God-given talents. My sewing room is my “happy place” where I can piece and quilt to my heart’s content as well as curl up with my Bible studies. I have been married for 31 years and have lived in TN, MS, AL, and LA.

Sommer is a great speaker that is very knowledgable in the scriptures & life and can speak on any topic with various moods of speaking. She can bring you to tears through laughter or by her love of the gospel & the conviction you’ll hear in her voice. A dedicated servant of The Lord now for many years she is willing to travel any distance to speak in order to edify the sisterhood of the Lord’s church.
