Over the years, I have had opportunity to serve amoung my church family in many capacities, from teaching and coordinating children and youth classes, to ministry teams, VBS, and adult class teaching.

Those are all great discriptions of things that I do- I fill my time well.

I know you all feel the same, which is why I love speaking and teaching in a room full of women! I would to talk to you any time regarding your events and how I can help serve your needs.
Western Hills Church of Christ
Wow! I am humbled to write my own bio. I am a spunky, energetic gal that loves women and being immersed in God’s Word. However, I am flawed and have to admit – I made a “C” in speech during my Harding University days. I am a 39 year old mother of two preteen boys, and a part-time teacher. I am a 2001 graduate from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor with a BS in Elementary Education. My husband, Justin Hall, is the youth minster at Western Hills church of Christ. I have had a yearning to bring others to Christ since I was a young girl and was baptized at age 11. My favorite topics to speak about are life struggles, juggling life, and parenting. I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, and food. I would be honored to speak at your Ladies Day.

Granbury St. Church of Christ
My husband and I have been married for almost 8 years and are raising 3 sweet boys. I am a 2009 graduate of Southwest School of Bible Studies. My husband and I started Hopkins Publishing in 2011 after I wrote my first book “The GLAM Girl’s Guide to Sex” which teaches the logic of purity. GLAM stands for Godly Ladies Adorned Modestly. We have since published several other titles and are focusing on the Compass Bible class curriculum.
I am humbled by any opportunity to teach straight from the word of God for Ladies Day’s, Teacher’s Workshops, and Purity Days.
CyFair Church of Christ
I’m a mother of four beautiful boys, three living and one who is waiting for me with our Heavenly Father. I have been happily married to my husband Jared for six years. I currently own a business where I do freelance marketing from home.
I’m 34 years old and in my lifetime I’ve been through both parental and significant other abuse, promiscuity, homelessness, single parenthood, raising a child with disabilities, and the death of a child… having only come out the other side because of the love of and love for my Heavenly Father.
I was raised in the Church of Christ and was baptized at the tender age of 9.
My main focuses are perseverance, faithfulness and forgiveness. We all fall and struggle, but what steps do we take to make sure we get back up again? No one has a smooth path in this life…and some paths are way rockier than others.
I organized the Ladies Day two years running at my previous congregation, League City Church of Christ and have done small speaking bits at various venues. I believe with my life experiences, I have been called to do something more. I’ve also started writing my first book which should be available in the coming year.
