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.

Dee Tales

Denell (Witt) Dennis grew up in the piney woods of Hallsville, Texas. She graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Elementary Education in 1986. She married Kevin Dennis while attending ACU. They moved to the Dallas area where Kevin began working for Texas Instruments. (He’s been there now for more than 30 years!) Denell taught second grade in Wylie, Texas, until the birth of their first child, Robert, in 1990.
In 1995, when their second child, Jenny, was a year old, Texas Instruments moved the Dennis family to Japan for 3 months and then to the Philippines for 18 months. During this time, they began working with the Midtown Church of Christ in Baguio City, Philippines. This had a HUGE impact on their lives, and Denell began to see the fingerprints of God like never before. It was extremely rewarding to work with the Filipinos and their children. Kevin and Denell helped the congregation start a children’s program, which has now grown into a full-time private school. Denell began a Mommy and Me devotional time for stay-at-home mothers with young children. Their third child, Alli, was actually “made in the Philippines” (☺) and was born shortly after they returned to the states in 1997.
Kevin and Denell currently live in Garland, Texas, and worship with the Saturn Road Church of Christ. They have enjoyed watching their children grow up in the Lord. Robert graduated from Harding University in 2012. He is a software developer and go-to guy for all things tech. Robert and his wonderful wife, Logan, have a precious baby boy, Henderson Todd, who was born in January of 2016. Kevin and Denell adore being Henderson’s “DeeDee & Gramps.” Jenny graduated from Abilene Christian University in May of 2016 and now lives in Austin, TX. Alli is currently a sophomore at ACU, majoring in speech pathology, savoring every sip of college life.
Denell has extensive experience working in women’s ministry, filling many different roles. For the past fifteen years, Denell has co-taught a neighborhood Ladies’ Bible Study/Prayer Group. In addition, she’s enjoyed speaking at many ladies’ days, retreats, teacher workshops, and other special events for women including: Texas Women’s Empowerment Conference, Women of Hope Conference, Pepperdine University Bible Lectureship, National Ladies’ Retreat in the Philippines, and a ladies’ seminar in Ghana, Africa. She currently teaches a Thursday morning Bible Class for women at Christian Care Center in Mesquite, TX. Denell is the worship leader for Saturn Road Church of Christ’s Wednesday morning Ladies’ Bible Class. She has become known as the “Ladybug Lady” because of her Lady BUG Bible Study series for women.
Bible Study Series: Ladies Better Understanding God
• Book 1: Lady BUGs…The Journey Begins copyright © 2007
• Book 2: Lady BUGs…Learning to Morph copyright © 2012
• Book 3: Lady BUGs…Wingin’ it With Him (a labor of love in progress)
Other tidbits? Denell enjoys cooking (if someone else cleans up!) and is a voracious reader. She adores going on dates with her husband. She loves chocolate of any shape, size, and quantity, preferably with a piping hot cup of coffee! But more than anything or anyone in this whole world, she wants to KNOW, to LOVE, and to BETTER UNDERSTAND her heavenly Father, His Son, and the Spirit of Truth. She has adopted the motto “Truth is Good Food.” Her heart’s desire is to listen to the Spirit’s nudges, be nourished daily with nutritious nuggets of Truth from God’s Word, and then share what she learns with others, reminding us all how Truth can set us free!

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. I have been involved with our WOW ministry, (Women of Worship) for several years, and have had opportunity to teach in that capacity as well. Those are all great discriptions of things that I do- I fill my time well.  I am in that phase of life where between church, school, and other life duties, I find that time is my most precious commodity!

Western Hills Church of Christ
Temple, Texas

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.

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.
