Biography Mother Sarah J. Phinisee

     All Praises and honor belongs to God for what he has done in my life.  Elder Phinisee and I were married on July 27, 1974.  I am so grateful that God brought us together, because of our commitment to God and to each other.  God has given direction and meaning to our lives.  I am thankful for my husband and all the experiences that we have shared.  I can't put a monetary value on him; he's priceless to me.  We have grown closer over the years and I know that God has us together for a special purpose.

     I was born in the state of Mississippi, to Mr. Earl and Everlina Bean.  Being the first of three children, my responsibilities started at an early age.  I attended Rosewald High School located in south Fulto, Kentucky.  My competitiveness allowed me to be the captain of the basketball team.  I completed my education at Broad Ripple High School and went on to earn my Q.M.A in medicine for the state of Indiana.  I am the mother of two girls, the eldest has passed on.  With all My heart and soul, I thank God for my husband and all that he has done for us.
