Jim and I have been married for 43 years and we have two children who are each married to their perfect soul mates. If that isn’t wonderful enough, we have 7 precious grandchildren. Watching our children live full lives and spending time with our grandchildren brings us great joy.
I served along side My Jim in full-time ministry for 20 years and then served in our local church while starting up and running our own successful business. During this time, I homeschooled my two children through graduation. I've been a youth pastors wife, pastors wife, nursery director, women’s ministry director, women’s Bible class teacher and anything else that needed doing. I also spent several years speaking for a ministry sharing my testimony, “Daddy, Do You Love Me?”
Home decorating is one of my favorite hobbies along with crafting, reading, traveling, writing and blogging. I probably should add lunching with friends and shopping. When I get to spend time with grandchildren, it's even more fun! My motto is "Live life to the fullest!" I'm doing my best!
I've always had a heart and concern for our country. I'm now serving on our city Planning and Zoning Commission as well as our city Airport Board. I love seeing how city government works. My first city board to serve on was a Crime Commission which was my first taste of city government. I've also volunteered in several other ministries and organizations.
My latest endeavor is a tea room in my home. My Jim added on a small room that is now what I call, “Beverly’s Tea Room.” I've loved entertaining family and friends with all the essentials for a tea time; scones with lemon curd, quiche, croissants and a salad along with a delicious dessert with just the right tea flavor in a beautiful tea cup.
You can also find me at my blog, His Heart, My Desire. This year marks 15 years of blogging. I always have tales to tell along with a desire to encourage women (and men) to always live life to the fullest.
In 2016 I was certified by Shari Braendel of Fashion Meets Faith as a Christian Image Consultant. Fashion has been a love of mine since a young girl. I had dreams of being a fashion designer/fashion buyer but pursued other dreams. I'm excited now in this season of my life to be able to enjoy all things fashion while serving others at the same time.
My Life Verse:
Delight yourself also in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. –Psalm 37:4
