I was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as my Savior at the age of 10. As a young adult I began to try and allow Jesus to be Lord of my life. This is still a priority in my life. My desire is to guide my students to put Christ first in their lives. I try to set a godly example before them and to use God’s Word as a guide in all situations. I have been at GCA since 1989. I have been married to Michael Turner (who is Associate Pastor /Worship and Music - First Baptist Church, Suffolk) for 38 years. We have two sons, Matthew and Mark, ages 36 and 32. Matthew is a commercial plumber in North Carolina. He and Janelle have a little boy, Mountain. Mark is Student Ministry Pastor at Nansemond River Baptist Church in Suffolk. Mark's wife Whitney is an Event Coordinator for the Business College at William and Mary. Mark and Whitney are also parents of our grandson, Jackson and granddaughter, Abigail! I pray that God will use your children to enrich your life as much as He has used mine to enrich my life.
Happy New Year!
