Meet Valerie and Larry
Updated: Nov 12
Hi there! We are Larry & Valerie and have been married for 47 years. We have one daughter, who is married and has blessed us with two precious grandchildren!
We just moved from the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area to Smithfield, North Carolina in 2022! We love it here! We love doing things together especially when history, genealogy. Nature or spirituality are involved.
We were on one of our historical site trips and this picture is taken in front of the beautiful log B&B in Virginia close to three former presidents' homes! Guess which ones!
I am a former Special Education Teacher of 17 years who eventually was ordained in ministry serving as a hospital chaplain for 27 years. Larry is a retired minister who served congregations for 35 years. We lived all over Ohio!
I, Valerie became a holistic healer as a result of classes at chaplain conventions. A physician and nurse practitioner paved the way as they felt I was very naturally a part of ministry already. They encouraged me to learn more. Now 18 years later I am a Clincal certified Aromatherapist and an Advanced Healing Touch Practitioner as well as a Grief Counselor. Thus I began Mystic Anointings!
Larry is my supporter and encourager. His skills are in Scripture interpretation through use of Biblical Greek and studies of religious history and all other forms of history. He is also a good Spiritual Director. He loves other types of history as well!
We are glad to be here in North Carolina!
Come by the shop to say hello. You might see Larry up town walking around as he tries to stay in shape after having a stroke. Don't hesitate to say hi to him and if you like history or Biblical study to sit and talk with him.
We wish for all of you many blessings!
