The love of kids has been a lifetime passion for this young 85 year old woman. She has always taught Sunday School, VBS and held most of us as babies in the nursery. She is an amazing woman. What we love about our friend Hatie is that she remembers the names of a lot of the kids who have came through VBS. She tells us stories of how Jimmy* became a missionary or how Susie* became a State Senator and how God has used all those kids to make a difference for God.
Hatie loves kids and the kids love her. She takes the time to make sure each and every child knows the Bible story, knows their memory verse each day and has a Bible. I can not begin to tell you how many Bibles she has given out all these years. Her passion is to make sure each and every kid that she comes in contact with knows Jesus. The kids can truly say they see Jesus in Hatie.
As each VBS has come and gone I look in awe at how Hatie has spent a lifetime making a difference in kids and families lives and how much I hope, just a little, that I can be more like her. The stories of lives she has touched never cease to amaze me. Hatie is a true servant and a true person that changes lives every day!
