Gina grew up in Monroe, Louisiana and studied journalism in college there, but took a thirty year detour to raise two beautiful daughters in Baton Rouge, LA; then went back to school and graduated with a BAAS degree from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, the same college her mother attended. For more than thirty-five years she has taught Sunday School and Discipleship Training because God gifted her with the motivational spiritual gifts of encourager and teacher.
She has been an editor for several publications, including Lifestyles Editor at her home town newspaper, The Picayune Item in Picayune, Mississippi; and she writes a weekly column for Studylight.org as well as bi-weekly columns at EverydayChristian.com.

“I love using my God-given talent to shine a light in a dark world. I am absolutely committed to bringing God glory with my writing,” she professes.
