About Me

Hi y'all! I just finished my fourth year teaching elementary school in Tennessee.  I am so thankful that God has  given me the passion to teach and I feel very blessed to be able to do what I LOVE to do everyday!  I am so thankful for my students.  They inspire me in so many ways by helping me be a more patient and loving person,  motivating me to become a better teacher, and  encouraging me to appreciate the simple and most precious gifts in life. Everyday is very rewarding and my kids truly make Teaching A Royal Adventure!
First and foremost the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ.  I was saved at the age of 7.  I remember my Sunday School teacher was telling us how God died on the cross for my (our) sins and rose from the dead. If we accept Jesus as our personal Savior then we are given the gift of eternal life with Him.  So after church my parents and I were at the grocery store, on Groundhog's Day. I kept tugging on my moms arm telling her that I wanted to get saved.  I let my mom know in the store that I wanted to accept Jesus in my heart and wanted to ask Him to forgive me of all of my sins.  That was the best decision I have ever made!  Having Christ in your heart doesn't mean life is easy.  There have been many trials, but I am so thankful to have my Savior in my heart and allowing Him to guide me for His will for my life.  Every branch of Teaching is a Royal Adventure, from teaching in the classroom to the business aspect is all for His glory.  If you have any questions about your personal relationship with Jesus Christ please feel free to contact me.
I don't know what I would do without my amazing family, they are my rock!  
I am so thankful their love, support, and guidance. 

Something very important to me are the experiences I have had on my trips to the Dominican Republic.  Words can not describe the happiness I felt when I was there and how much I miss the precious blessings I met there.  I remember the first time going to the DR I was so excited to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the community, but yet I learned very quickly that the brothers and sisters in Christ taught me so much while I was there.  I feel so blessed to of had the opportunity in college to go with an amazing group of college friends during our Spring Breaks and I am forever grateful for the experiences I have had there! Coming back home my heart longed for the people that I had come to know in such a short time.  I am constantly stunned at God's power and reminded that everything is in God's timing and He has a plan for me that is far better than anything I could ever imagine for myself, and He has that for you too!  I love living life trusting in my Savior.  All the glory goes to God!


Now here are some pictures:

I am SO thankful to do what I LOVE to do as a career.  Teaching the kids in La Repressa was a wonderful experience.
This is my sweet friend Erickson.  This picture was taken my first trip to the DR.  I met him and fell in love with this little boy.  God is our ultimate guidance and 4 months after the first trip our church was calling sponsors for La Repressa.  Erickson was one of the children we could sponsor.  God is SO good and HE is the who who brought us together!  I am so thankful for this little boy.  Erickson and his family are a big part in my life.
If you are thinking about sponsoring, Vision Trust is a group of people with a passion to spread Gods love to the neediest children around the world.  You can visit there website by clicking Erickson's picture above.
