Josie is grateful to serve her Lord in the role of Counselor of Women at First Baptist Church.

She was married to her high school sweetheart, Mike, 43 years. He is now in glory. She has two married children and six grandchildren.

Josie’s husband Mike served in the Elder role in four different churches, in Phoenix, Arizona, and Louisville, Kentucky. She served alongside him and also discipled women at each church. In Louisville, she also had the privilege of training women in leadership roles at several churches. This included discipling women biblically with the intention of building a climate of women discipling women, equipping them to build up other women and to minister to one another in truth.

Josie loves the outdoors. She and her family’s verse is Philippians 1:6, "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."
