With a passion for Christ, education and children, Netta always rejoices in activities that are for the development, mentorship, and continued enhancement of God’s people, and seeks to be a light in a world filled with darkness.
In her time of leisure, Netta enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, experiencing the Fine Arts, journaling, traveling, cooking and, of course, eating chocolate!
Netta views her life as a mission of service. What others may view as a burden, she views as a blessing and opportunity to share God’s love. She radiates with an inner grace which only comes from the confidence in being a woman after God’s own heart, striving daily to be a woman of virtue (Proverbs 31).
