 I was born Gay Yvonne Adkins on July 31, 1959, to Johnnie Albert Adkins and June Elizabeth Adkins.  I am the oldest of three children.  I lived for 24 years in West Columbia, S.C.  My childhood days were wonderful, thanks to my mom and dad, who filled our home with love, laughter, and discipline.

     In 1983, I married Joe Jackson Coley.  We resided in Monroe, N.C.  The Lord allowed us to rear and nurture two precious children - our daughter Micah and our son Tristan. This past June our family was extended with our first grandson Grayson Christopher Pace.

     In 1999, our family relocated to Childersburg, Alabama, so that Joe could take on the pastoral duties of Victory Baptist Church. I am currently finishing up my 6th year as a 7th grade math teacher at NLMS.  I feel that both my husband and I have been blessed to have the opportunity to work with other people at different capacities.  I count it and honor and privilege to have the title teacher.
