Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Marietta Williams Willhite


After graduation I went to Southern Baptist College (now Williams University) in Walnut Ridge. I got my AA degree and met the man I would later marry. I came back to Jonesboro and worked at the Ready Mix Concrete Co./Lumber Co. My husband to be Leon went on to Ouachita Baptist University. When he graduated he came back to Jonesboro and we married in 1964 and he worked at the Joneboro Builders Supply and pastored a small church west of Jonesboro. Our first child was born in 1967 as we were moving to Texas for Leon to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, where he got his MRE degree. Just as we were finishing up there we had our second child. We moved to Arizona to start a mission church. We started Twin Butte Baptist Church in Phoenix, Az. 1972 and Leon has pastored and help build the buildings and is still here today. We had our third child while starting the work. Three children in three states. That was the end of moving and having children. God has been so good to us. We have been able to live in the same neighborhood and our children were able to attend the same schools without having to move around as I had done. Our oldest daughter is married to a pastor and lives in Kansas, they have 4 children. Our son lives here and is the Office Manager at his business and has 2 children. Our youngest daughter lives in Lompoc, California and works for the State of California. She is a Supervisor in the Courthouse in Santa Barbara. They have 2 dogs. God has blessed us with 46 years of ups and downs but we are ever grateful for those years together. I have been Leon's personal secretary all these years and he doesn't want to retire so it looks like I may not either. The future is all in God's hands as to when that time will be. I am ready today if and when that time comes. God is so GOOD!
