Bargainomics is money management God's way. My life verse is Matthew 6:33 where Jesus says "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." When Jesus Christ has first place in your life, the other things fall into proper order and perspective.

Who Am I?

First and foremost, I'm a believer in Jesus Christ. I was born in Birmingham, Alabama and have spent my life in and around the Birmingham area.  My husband Larry and I are active members of Gardendale First Baptist Church.

I'm a graduate of the Women's Ministry Certificate Program at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. As The Bargainomics Lady, I've done radio & TV and spent years doing regular segments on Birmingham's Fox 6 Good Day Alabama and Fox 6 News at Noon. I've made guest appearances on the internationally acclaimed TV program Babbie's House & on the national radio program "Living with Joy" presented by Phil Waldrep Ministries.

I'm also a columnist for Christian Family Magazine and I've been freelance writing for many years & have been published in a lot of magazines & newspapers. I also review books for Publishers Weekly & create crossword puzzles. Three books of mine have made it into print thus far & I hope to see my first fiction book in print soon.

I appreciate every opportunity to speak to church and civic groups and would love to share Bargainomics with your group!
