Cindy Edwards, AWANA Commander

Cindy has been the Awana Commander since the program was started at North Acres. She believes that one of the most important things we can teach our children is about God and the lessons His word teaches us –and if you have fun while learning, even better.  Each Wednesday night is filled with scriptures, lessons, songs and games that keep the children returning week after week.  She graduated from Louisiana Tech University and has been a Register Nurse for more than 15 years.  She and her husband, David, have been married 31 years and are blessed in that they have 2 grown children, a son-in-law and a precious grandson that is just beginning his journey with Awana. When she has some down time, you can find her with her nose in a book.
