Listen to LaToya's Story

As of last year April 2012, LaToya has served the Lord for many years, primarily as missionary, teacher, and youth leader in Mexico, Kazakhstan, and the USA. Today, she is the elder for Family Life Ministries and runs a cell group dedicated to
building and strengthening strong marriages in her local church. She is also a lay preacher, filling the pulpit for three local churches. As a commissioned Navy Chaplain Candidate, she will begin active duty upon the projected completion of the process at year-end. She is passionate about working with broken families and depression recovery. With a BA in pastoral theology (minor in biblical languages), she was to complete the MDiv in May 2012. She is also a credentialed Life Coach and credentialed public speaker for the cause of domestic violence. La Toya has been married for 10 years and has a three-year-old son. The family enjoys learning, laughing, playing, and making music. She enjoys playing the cello and recreational writing of stories and devotionals. Her motto: May I decrease so that Jesus may increase.
