|Endowed with the spirit of a winning & giving attitude, a compassionate heart, and a commitment to serve, Wanda believes that one person can make a difference in our world today if we would just reach back! Luke 12: 48 is her life guide. Paraphrased, it reads; from everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required, and from the one to whom much has been entrusted even more will be demanded. She acknowledges that she have been entrusted with much! She is therefore committed to give back to her family, church, and community by utilizing the gifts, talents, resources, and skills for which she has been entrusted.|
