Mrs. Maria Bolen

My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 19 years. We have been blessed with 3 children: Joe Hunter, who is 17 and a senior this year; Breanna, who is 13 and plays softball; and Mercy, who is 10 years old and loves horses, dogs, and gymnastics. We also have 5 dogs who are like children: Petey, Jack, Sweet Pea, Junebug, and Mocha. I enjoy spending time sitting on my back porch, playing with my dogs, and volunteering at my church. Whenever possible, I also love traveling! Guatemala is one of my favorite places to visit.
