Headquarters Team, Atlanta, U.S.
What an absolute honor it is to be a staff member with WDA! In August of 2016, I was given the opportunity to come on board at Headquarters as the Bookkeeper. I was called into missions back in 1997, but I made some detours and have been praying that the Lord would open doors for me to be back on that path. This has been a beautiful way the Lord has proven that He never forgets His promises. I may not be IN the field, but I am directly helping those who are.
I strive to make sure all WDA funds are current, correct and that we stay on the good side of the IRS. I’m part of the HQ team that makes it possible for our missionaries to go overseas and spread God’s unfailing grace and restoration. Our traveling missionaries don’t need to worry about taxes, salary, donation reporting, etc., so my job allows their minds to rest. They know that we are in pristine state with the IRS and that all their travel accounts, even the associate staff living overseas, are up to date and calculated correctly. Even NASCAR drivers have a team that allow them to race effectively. I am not the driver, but I make sure we have the funds to buy the tires and keep the car running like new. I am always honored that God chose me to be a member of WDA, and I know that THIS is where I belong.
I will be traveling to India in 2022 and hope to travel to Africa in 2023!
My husband, Brennen, and I live in Newnan, GA, and together we have 6 wonderful children; Steven (21), Harleigh (20), Caleb (18), Sarah (18), Elizabeth (18), and Joshua (16), and our beautiful dogs, Rubble, Lucy, Nala, and Loki. I have been blessed to homeschool my youngest, and he enjoys having his own space when he comes with me to the office at WDA. We love our home church, Crossroads Church in Sharpsburg, and cherish nights at home with our family or going to see the Braves play! Go Braves!
I have personally been through Restoring Your Heart (Processing Pain) and have experienced miraculous changes in my life and my home. God continues to restore the broken places within my life, and I love the person I have become through His grace.
I am sincerely grateful to those who support my family, allowing me to continue to serve WDA and our Lord Jesus.
