Beth is grateful for the gift of being a wife, mother, grandmother, professor, and author. She delights in teaching biology and environmental science at Union University. (Her favorite teaching activity is soil sampling with students as she has her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in soil science.) Her weekly blog, soulscientistblog.com, addresses a variety of topics ranging from soil science and faith to patient advocacy. Her books, "Good Ground: Volumes 1 and 2" are inspirational Bible studies highlighting how soil science displays God’s beauty in creation and our everyday lives as Christians. Both books are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and directly from Northeastern Baptist Press.
