BIO     Lil Welch, known as Granny Lil, was born and raised in Louisiana. She graduated from Louisiana College in Pineville, Louisiana, where she majored in English education and minored in speech. Granny Lil did not begin her teaching career immediately. Instead, she spent several years as a stay-at-home mom and homemaker. When she did begin her teaching career, she found that it was more than a job; teaching for her was a calling. Granny Lil taught 5th grade, junior high, and high school over a twenty-year period. She also served on the board of her alma mater, Louisiana College.    Granny Lil is thrilled to join the staff of Discipleship Tutorial, where she hopes to grow closer to the Lord and influence her students to do the same.    If you ask Granny Lil what she treasures most in her life, besides her God, she would say her family: her husband of forty-five years, her five children, her ten grandchildren, and her 99-year-old mother.
