Bonita always saw the need for children to build a relationship with God. She taught in the cradle roll department at National & High St. (Water Mill) Church of Christ in Springfield, MO. She also taught the four-year-old class at Sedona Church of Christ in Sedona, AZ. and at Robinson Ave. Church of Christ in Springdale, AR. for many years. There are many people who remember being taught by her or her teaching their kids, not to mention her very own children. Her motivation was to put God first in all things, and she shared this to all she met.
