Margo is a native of Shreveport, Louisiana.  She spent 20 years as an officer in the U.S. Army and considered the places the Army took her as part of her mission field.  Margo is married to Mac Everett, and they made the FBC Fair Oaks Ranch home in 1998.  She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Northwestern State University, a Masters in Public Administration and Adult Education from Ball State University, and a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary.  She is active in her community, enjoys quilting and leads a neighborhood Bible study.  Margo says that her calling, and her favorite of all things she could possibly do, is to help others grow closer to God through the study of God's Word.  Grow in the Word and know the Freedom God has for you.  Join us for Bible Study!
