Mary Smith

My name is Mary Smith, Women of Courage Leader at Forest Hill Church Ministries.  I have been a member of FHCM for 28 years and my love for the Lord has led me to be a part of various ministries within the church.  The most fulfilling ministry for me has been being a part of the worship team. I also am the church administrator and have served in that capacity for over 10 years.  In addition to my church life I hold a double Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and Criminal Justice from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, Texas. I am currently working on my Master’s in Early Childhood at Stephen F. Austin State University and planning to pursue my Doctorate in Education. In my spare time I co-authored a book titled, Power Moms. It tells the story of being born into foster care and winning the battle of feeling rejected and abandoned by my birth mom. Those experiences have shaped me into the woman I am and therefore I am able to empower other women. The true loves of my life are my 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren.
