About Me

I grew up in Joliet, Illinois and began to take piano lessons when I was four years old. My father, Glen Seaborg, was the song leader at Faith Bible Church, and he gave me opportunities to play the piano and sing with him, my mother, and two brothers. I remember being so small behind the pulpit that I had to stand on a chair to be seen!

When I was seven years old, I remember the Holy Spirit convicting me that I needed to be saved, and I’ll never forget going forward at Gospel Tabernacle in Joliet on a Sunday night in February of 1957 to give my heart to the Lord.

I met my husband Roger at Bob Jones University, and together we served the Lord for 43 years in South Carolina, Indiana, Alabama and Illinois. Our family has always been musical, and we have encouraged our four children to use their talents for the Lord.

We ended our ministry when Roger retired from Salem Baptist Church in Decatur, Illinois.   Shortly after retirement, he passed away as a result of a brain tumor.

I am a retired principal from Harristown Elementary School in Harristown, IL.

I sing with a Southern Gospel Trio called State of Grace.  You might want to check out our Facebook page or website.



I have four children and eight grandchildren. The oldest, Chad is married to Stephanie Childs and lives near Grand Rapids, MI. My second son, Lance is a professor of English at Francis Marion University in Florence, SC. Scott, my third son,  is married to Jessica Hutchison, and they live in the St. Louis area. My daughter Lisa is currently teaching in a Christian school in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    Glenda, I lost my husband to Glioblastoma, on April 19. He lasted 10 months after his diagnosis. Reading your blog sounded so much like my journey with his illness. Thank you for sharing your journey with everyone.

      Kathy, thanks for your kind words. I am amazed at how many people are affected by this cancer. But maybe it’s because it has impacted me and now I am more aware of it.

      Blessings on you.
