I have two  children. My son is 33 and my daughter is 27. They are both employed in the IT field. When I got laid off from my job in May of 2018, I decided to apply for my Social Security benefits and just work part time. I got my property/casualty insurance license and worked in insurance for a year. I decided that was not for me and began working at the First Christian Church in Odessa, MO for Pastor Russell Alexander.  That is how I met Pastor Donna, which brought me to Longview Chapel. I'm so excited to be here!
