My Story

I was born and raised in Middletown, Delaware, the 5th of 6 children and half of a pair. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Social Work and have worked professionally as a Probation/Parole officer in Wilmington, DE and as a discharge Planner for Reading Hospital and Medical Center in Reading, PA. I married my husband, John, in 1980 and have been happily married since then. (Full Disclosure: I did not meet my husband on probation or parole.)

When we decided to home school our two children through their junior high years I put my professional career on hold for what I thought would be several years. The Lord used this time at home and away from the working world to do a work in my heart. After being convicted of my sin and convinced that Jesus Christ was the way of salvation I placed my faith in Him in my late thirties. Shortly afterward I was invited to attend a Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) class in my local area. The in-depth study of God’s Word was amazing! I was called into a leadership role after one year of study and into the role of Teaching Leader the third year. Eight years of teaching led me to an even greater desire to know and teach the whole counsel of God.

Then, in a Sunday School class on Jeremiah I was struck by Jeremiah 1:7b, “for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.” It seemed that the Words were chosen just for me! I left BSF and have been speaking and teaching for various churches and events as He has called since September 2008.  

I love serving Jesus Christ as one who “feeds His sheep”. It is my desire to teach God’s Word diligently, with reverence and awe for the Source of the truths I teach, and with an engaging, and sometimes witty, delivery so that the hearers will not just listen but do what it says.

    I found you site via., a google search I was doing on the poor and needy. A picture you have posted came up. I will add you to my prayer list. We have similar testimonies. I too, and my wife, came to embrace God’s sovereign grace after walking with him for many years.
    Have you ever come to New England? There is a faithful remnant here that could benefit from your visit.
    Many Thanks,
    Brother Charles

    Brother Charles, Thanks for the encouraging words. I have not been to New England in many years but know that God keeps a remnant everywhere!
    Blessings to you and your family in Christ, Beth

    I was in your third class, I think, at BSF as the next year you were teaching the whole shebang. For some reason, I do not recall, I was at your home and your kids were going to RHS, I guess the group met at your house, one time. Needless to say, you were a big part of my walk with the Lord, and it’s been a long trip…. I saw the note saying that you are going to head-up the retreat for FBC, I went to FBC a number of years ago and still stay in touch with some people.. God bless you in your ministry Beth, actually from what I see, He has. 😉 Peggy Jones,

    Hi Peggy, I DO remember you! The study of Romans, I think and wasn’t your sister-in-law also in our group? So nice to hear from you. You’re right about my home and kids – we had a fellowship there a couple of times. I’m looking forward to the retreat for FBC, I have some wonderful friends there. Thanks for your blessing – how did you find me?
    Hope all is well with you.
    Blessings, Beth
