Assisting ministries for the church has blessed Darla for over 35 years. Since 2015, the blessing has been with the Southwest Church. Darla and her husband, Jim, moved to northeast Arkansas in 2014 from Rockford, Illinois. They have a farm through inheritance in Smithville where they love spending much of their free time. The outdoors – whether at the farm, camping, or walking on a beach, is their happy place drawing them nearer to God through His creation.
