Q: What was your childhood like?
A: I was born in Blount County, the oldest of seven children, and raised in Birmingham. ... Looking back, I feel blessed as we had good parents who cared for us. They inspired me with music.
Q: When and how did you come to know the Lord?
A: I moved to the Glennwood community in August 1961 and was saved in October that year. Our pastor at that time was Wayne Cambell. His wife, Maureen, is the one that led me to the Lord.
Q: How did you get started with your music ministry?
A: During my grammar school years, I took piano lessons and did the same in high school. I started playing the piano at Glennwood Baptist in 1968. I have had the joy of being the volunteer pianist for 43 years. It has never been a chore for me.
Q: What motivates you to serve?
A: My faith in the Lord sees me through each day. As I reflect over the years, I see God leading me to where I am today. I hope to be in this place of service until the Lord calls me home as I love my church family and they mean the world to me. I could not be happier doing what I do. Music has always been a big part of my life. I love to sing and play for Him!
