Fay's childhood consisted of her mom and two brothers. Her dad passed away when she was about 7 years old. Her brothers were much older than her, and married, so her precious, God-loving mom and Fay walked through her childhood together. Her mom had promised her dad that she would keep Fay in church throughout her years of growing into adulthood, and she did just that! They were in church every time the doors were open, till the last person (usually the pastor) closed them! She was raised in the Baptist denomination, received Jesus as her Savior at age 11, and is very thankful for her spiritual upbringing. She is grateful that she does not have a past that consisted of living in the world, participating in worldly pleasures.
Fast forward: Fay met and married her awesome husband, Barry, to whom she has been married nearly 39 years. They have four children, ranging in ages 44-48, and 5 beautiful grandchildren, ranging in ages 12-18.
Fay's desire is to have God's desires in her life. (Psalm 37:4) Pleasing Him is her #1 priority in life. She says as that is accomplished everything works out for her good (Romans 8:28).
