More About Felicia
I was born and raised in Ada. I left for college, got married and was gone for about 10 years before moving back home. I met my husband, Barry Whitworth, at Oklahoma Christian College. He graduated from OC and went on to Oklahoma State University to study veterinary medicine. I followed him and graduated from OSU.
We have been blessed with three children. Lauren is my oldest. She has a master’s degree in education and is an English teacher at Southeast in OKC. Madison has a master’s degree in dietetics and just passed her boards to become a registered dietitian. She is job hunting. My son, Walker, just graduated from East Central University with a math major. We also have a bonus child. Cheyene Howell has lived with our family for six years and is a senior at Ada High School. We got to know Cheyene from church. She rode the bus.
I have worked as Central’s fulltime children’s minister for 18 years. Our mission is to build relationships and to teach kids to love God and love people. Never in my wildest dreams did I think children’s ministry is what I would be doing, but I love it! When I look back, I see God’s hand all over it.
In my spare time I like to garden, paint, take pictures, and read. I don’t have much spare time though. Barry and I live on a farm and raise sheep, cows and chickens. We also have 5 dogs, 8 cats, a donkey and most recently added a peacock that we named Kevin.
