Our household is about to triple!
Carol Starling, Administrative Assistant
Our household is about to triple! My husband Glenn and I have been empty nesters pretty much since Carla, our only child, started college in 1999. Following college, she accepted a teaching position in a private Christian school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. While there, she met and married Nelson Diaz, a wonderful Christian young man, and this past September, they presented us with our first grandchild, Carolyn. They are now preparing to return to the States to live and raise their family, which will increase by two more in October! They will be staying with my husband and me at least until after the twins arrive and they can find jobs and a place of their own to live. Needless to say, our lives are about to change drastically, but we are so excited to have our family back home.
Family. Immediate family. Extended family. Christian family. Friends and acquaintances who have become like family. All have been an important part of our lives. That is one of the things I really like about my job here at the Foundation. We are all family - all of us caring, sharing, rejoicing, sorrowing, working together. One of the best parts of my job is getting to meet so many of you through the two events we hold each year - the Noel Inspirational Retreat in October and the Baptist Heritage Award Luncheon that is coming up this month, April 20. You, too, are part of my greater family in Christ, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many of you and share in helping you achieve your goals to support the Christian ministries that are important to you.
I came to the Foundation four years ago this past February from a church secretary/administrative assistant background. My husband and I both have Religious Education degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth and have been blessed to be able to use our education, training and special interests in the many job opportunities we have had over the years. We live in Fuquay-Varina and are members of Crossroads Church in Lillington, where I serve in the First Impressions (greeting and welcoming) ministry and Glenn is an ESL teacher and deacon. I am thankful to be a part of, and look forward to many more years with, my wonderful Foundation family.
