How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Women's Ministry Coordinator ,

All Her Paths Minisries

I am a military spouse, mother of four, ministry leader, and Bible teacher. I teach Bible studies on and around U.S. Air Force bases with the goal of getting women connected, to teach them to build community, and to share the hope they have in Jesus. If a student were to shadow me, they would watch as I compose expository messages to teach, upload previous lessons to our online forum, and participate in our weekly Bible study. I teach discipleship, mentorship, and "life on life" mission.
