I grew up in Clearwater, Florida in the 1950s with two sisters and a brother, raised by a mom who loved God and loved to pray. I moved to Atlanta in 1965 with one of my sisters and never thought of leaving, even though I still love the salt air and the feel of the sugar sand under my feet. I raised my son and daughter at Mount Paran Church and came to North when it opened in 1987. I was a volunteer from the beginning and have been on staff since 1998. I have always had a heart for prayer and for the nations, so it is quite an honor for me to work as missions and prayer coordinator.
