I live in Kearney, MO and I am a member of First Baptist Church where I am involved with the choir, worship team, the group "Wisdom", and directing the children's choir. I am a member of Mo Kan Gospel Music Association and Country Gospel Music Association.

My new CD is titled "Faith Given". These songs are about faith, love, grace, redemption and hope. These songs tell the story of the Lord's love for us, His death, resurrection and return. My focus is on spreading the good news of the gospel thru my music ministry.
