The Founder of Word for Word Ministries

I look forward to hearing that you are delightfully successful as you memorize scripture and are able to do much more than you ever imagined possible! I am delighted and humbled that God is allowing me to serve you as you memorize his Holy Word!

More important than my formal education is the blessing of my family heritage that is the foundation for my ministry calling. I was raised one of six children (5 sisters!) in a home that honored God and am in a multi-generational line of ministry heritage.

My father managed Forest Home Conference under Henrietta Mears. Billy Graham and Bill Bright (and many others) were there at the time being greatly impacted and challenged to ministry. Subsequently, my father ministered as a pastor and leader of pastors for 62 years. My maternal great grandfather used to quote entire chapters of the Bible from memory.
