A Woman With A Willing Spirit to Serve/Our WINGS Lady of the Month for July 2015(Teri Garrett)

Theresa Hacker Garrett was born on June 16, 1967, in Marion County, Indianapolis, Indiana, where she resided until she was two and a half years old. She and her family then moved back to Manchester and then to Oneida where she went to elementary school. Teri graduated high school from Oneida Baptist Institute. She was very active in school and loved sports. She played basketball, baseball, ran track, and was also a cheerleader. It's no wonder Teri is so great at everything she does.

Teri has one daughter, Danielle Garrett, who is the world to her. God has recently blessed Danielle, who is expecting a new baby this year around September. As far as doctors can tell, it's a baby girl.

Teri has been active in her church  since she began in 1988, when the church was organized. She has held positions of Sunday School teacher and Children's Church Director, her current position at this time. She has been very active in the annual Teen Camps being a team leader and games coordinator. She's a valuable asset to our church.

In addition, if you need a dessert, Teri's the woman for the job! She makes the "world's best" cakes and desserts. All you need to do is give her a call, and it's done! She takes it upon herself to bake cupcakes for every Mothers and Fathers Day and other church events. What a beautiful and thoughtful thing to do. It's her special way of saying "we love and appreciate you" from our church. She doesn't even want the credit, because she says it's from the church to them. This is done solely at her own expense.

Teri has NEVER refused to do anything the church has asked of her. She has such a willing spirit to serve. She has always allowed God to use her with the spiritual gifts and is a blessing to her sisters and brothers in the Lord and to our church. Teri has also incorporated one of her gifts of crochet into the making of her beautiful prayer shawls. Those who have received one will treasure it forever. Teri is also an anointed altar worker.

Teri, we just want to say THANK YOU! Our prayer is that God will continue to bless and prosper you with everything you so richly deserve. We also pray for God's blessings upon your new baby granddaughter in September.

Congratulations, Miss July!!!
