Being home schooled until she attended a small private school in Baytown, Texas for junior high and Baytown Christian Academy for high school,Mary looked forward to Summer which meant Vacation Bible School.

After graduating Magnum CumLaude from Baytown Christian Academy, Mary has bounced around to severalcolleges and has earned her Associates of Arts in International Studies and isfinishing up her Bachelors at the University of Houston – Clear Lake. Heraspiration is to get her teaching certification once she is finished with her BA in Humanities.
Volunteering in multipleministries since she first started attending Crosby Church in the Spring of 2007, Mary loves teaching the word of God and learning more and more about the depth of love that God has for her to share with others. An opportunity in 2001 allowed Mary to travel to Peru with a group of her peers to share the gospel for three weeks. This is a time where deep rooted love and a call to serve thechurch continued to develop in her and Mother's Day 2015, Mary accepted the Children's Minister position at Crosby Church Huffman Campus.
In her spare time, Mary enjoys cooking, baking, taking her dog to the dog park, going to the beach, and spending quality time with her family and friends. She also enjoys all sorts of crafting, coloring, sipping a good cup of tea, and making people feel the love that God has put in her heart.
