Singing History: My Dad and Mom sang in local Revivals before and after I was born. I was raised in a home that listened to and sang Southern Gospel Music and that was all the music I knew growing up. I fell in love with it!! I can remember begging God to teach me how to play the piano also. Over the years, God has granted me my request. When I was first married, a local singing group needed a piano/keyboard player and I was introduced to them by my husband's cousin. When they found out I could sing also, I was placed into the group as a soprano vocalist also. This started the journey to my solo ministry and eventually my family singing group. I previously sang in (3) local groups before God called me out to sing as a soloist. The first (2) singing groups disbanded due to job or family related issues. When I answered the call to sing Solo, I had no other reason to leave the group I was in other than God's calling. This was a very hard decision but I knew God's calling. My daughter Megan was so attached to the lead singer; she called him Grandpa. God has been so faithful to me over the years. I can remember people asking to come and sing with me to form a new group and every time I would pray about it, God always said "no". I was obedient to his voice. I never dreamed that I would be singing as a trio with my own children down the road of life. I am so grateful and greatly blessed to have my family singing ministry!
Something that others might not know about me: I love to go 4-wheeling in the woods.

Singing History: I was around 8 years old when I started singing lead on one song in my mom's concerts. My voice went through the "change" and I had to be pulled for a couple of years while Mom and Megan continued to sing duet. When I was 15 years old, mom decided that it was time to learn how to harmonize as well as sing lead. This was not an easy task but the practice has paid off! My time in the Chapel Valley Studio was a wonderful teaching experience! I now sing with my mom and sister the full concert as a trio. This makes my Mom very happy! She loves harmony.
