While teaching elementary physical education in the late 1990s, a prayer person became Daphne’s assistant. For the next 20 years, Daphne and her prayer friend would start their day in a PE office with a Scripture and prayer.

This, along with the prayers of her great-grandmother, grandparents, and a very special aunt, catapulted Daphne to desire to pray more.  

Daphne and her husband Junior make their home in the small rural community of Beech Bluff, TN. They have 2 adult children and 4 grandchildren. 

What we love about Daphne: her gentleness, her willingness to pour out her heart before God, and her depth of love for Jesus.

Ask her about: running, her love of music (there’s a song for just about anything), encouraging families, and leading her school to be one of the ten healthiest school in the nation.
