Angela has been married to her high school sweetheart for a couple of decades and they have three children (two by birth and one by adoption). She has battled health issues most of her adult life. It is through life's struggles and sorrows that she has learned to truly depend on God who lovingly sustains us through all things and shows our faith for what it is through trial. Daily, there is usually a battle of some kind regarding health.  

God used this struggle to draw Angela to Himself. It has inspired her to pursue His truth in everything. She wouldn’t trade the journey for anything. Though she wished she lived in a climate with dryer heat and fewer storm systems so she wouldn’t hurt so badly!    

Angela has always been interested in people and their struggles. She attended the Ohio State University and then transferred to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She immediately put that degree to use in the field of social work in a local children’s home.    

When Angela had her first child she realized she wanted to stay home and be a stay-at-home mom. She has always desired to serve others and continually pursued avenues to do that by writing Bible studies, teaching, and writing blogs for Refresh My Soul, and various other ministries online to include The Gospel Coalition and Key Ministries.

   
With her interest in people, psychology, the brain, sociology, and anthropology, she continued to consume any book she could and realized that the biblical perspective seemed to be what brings lasting change. How then do you marry psychology and the precious word of God? Easy, through biblical counseling. When this was realized Angela went to the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) and trained to complete her Biblical Counseling Certificate. Seeing there was no counseling supervision with this education she decided to complete her training through the Association of Christian Biblical Counselors (ACBC) where she has been certified as a biblical counselor since 2016.
