I have been married for 49 years to my husband, William Willey. We have two adult children, Michelle and Bill, a daughter-in-Law, Lisa, and three grandchildren, Austen, Clare, and Liam.
My favorite activities include playing with and caring for my young grandchildren, exercising, sewing, and reading. Also, I enjoy traveling with my husband.
I love teaching at The King’s because teaching is my passion and my gifting. I am able to use both my extensive experience teaching Bible Studies and my experience teaching English courses, at the College and University levels, in college courses designed to instruct future church leaders. It is an awesome experience and an amazing blessing!
