Kelly cites her grandparents and Aunt Clara as persons who inspired her. This inspiration is in line with Kelly’s passion for ministry which is based on the Shema in Deuteronomy 6 where the Israelites are exhorted that “these words…shall be on your heart” and taught “diligently” to the children as the parents “talk,” “walk,” “lie down,” and “rise up.” Kelly brings over twenty-four years of ministerial and teaching experience to Magnolia Church’s preschool and children’s departments. Her desire is to “help children grow in their relationship with God and equip parents and teachers to do the same.”
