age five, Nancy found a love for both creating and acting out stories. She and her sister wrote and performed dramas for their family. Then, during elementary school, she and one of her best friends regularly
wrote dramas to present in various classes. When Nancy entered the
youth group at First Baptist Church in Atlanta, the choir director asked
her to write and direct a drama for a yearly banquet. After seeing
the great success, the youth minister asked Nancy to write and perform
dramas each month or so. In college, she was part of the drama team
at the Baptist Student Union at Georgia Tech.
While in college, Nancy was truly blessed to marry Brent
Bond whom she had met at her Atlanta church. (Though they had
attended the same high school - Southwest Dekalb!) Later, the
couple joyfully welcomed their first son and both extended families first
grandson, Zach, who was born in Atlanta. Next they had several moves
including Valdosta, GA; Wake Forest, NC; Roxboro, NC; and Galax, VA. There in Galax, they had the blessing of greeting their second son, Alex. Years later, in 1996, the family moved as Southern Baptist missionaries to

secular dramas. These mystery dinners have
been a HUGE hit and numerous churches return
yearly to purchase new scripts.
Her love for drama, allowed Nancy to lead the annual
creative ministries conference for churches in the state of Ohio. Plus, for many years she taught workshops each March at the Kentucky Creative
Ministries Conference in Louisville or Bowling Green until they came to an

serving in Ohio, Nancy and Brent moved back to Georgia. Now, she
