By joining Kairos International Prison Ministry, opportunities opened to minister in Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana and other youth detention facilities and women's prisons. Currently she volunteers with 17 TX Department of Criminal Justice facilities in the greater Houston area.
Extensive international travel and missions along with over 15 years of prison ministry experience has equipped her to be able to humbly share the love of God with sincerity and compassion. When not serving as a minister in TDCJ, The Luke Church Humble, TX welcomes her as an Associate Minister.

She is a recent newly wed and has two daughters. Her "free" time is spent spoiling her two grandchildren she totally adores!

And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour (Matthew 8:5-13).
