    We moved to Baton Rouge from Houston, Texas in 1976. FBBC is where the Lord led us when we looked for a new church home. My husband, Odis, and I teach Sunday School. We are planning to begin a new class for young adults in March. In the past, I coordinated children's choirs for several years, taught children's Sunday School, and Single Adult Sunday School. Thanks to our 3 children, we have 10 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. My favorite name is Grandma!  I am employed by FBBC as ministry assistant to the pastor, the minister to senior adults, the women's ministry director and men's ministry leadership.
