Willa Carpenter, who has been with us for more than 19 years, serves as the Human Resources Liaison for our firm. Without dispute, Willa is the firm’s spiritual leader. In fact, in much of her work Willa really is more like a Chaplain. She provides guidance and support to the firm’s employees by listening, counseling, and praying with them whenever they are in need. Willa is also available to help with small and practical matters. She sees to it that flowers are sent to our employees or their close family members when accident or sickness occurs.
On many occasions, Willa makes hospital visits when firm employee or their families are involved. In case of the death of an employee’s loved one, Willa often represents the firm by attending the funeral. Willa oversees the firm’s weekly devotions. She says these are a wonderful testament to the spirit of Christian fellowship that exists, as well as an acknowledgement of our need for God’s blessings on our firm. Willa also has regularly-scheduled prayer meetings with the spouses of several of the male shareholders.
Willa says it is exciting to see how God comes in to answer prayer in mending broken relationships, healing broken hearts, and providing many and various needs that confront our employees. She says God has opened the hearts of so many wonderful people in our firm, making it possible to accomplish many things and fulfill many needs.
My observations over the years have allowed me to see that this saintly woman is totally committed to Jesus Christ, totally unselfish, and that she cares deeply for folks. Willa and Sam, who have been married for 58 years, have three children and six grandchildren. They are faithful members at First Assembly Church of God where Sam serves as deacon. They are both heavily involved in their church. The Carpenters enjoy entertaining and have spent many years serving in events, ranging from the celebration of a couple’s anniversary, to larger group prayer meetings and dinner parties. Sam and Willa believe that family and friends are their greatest asset. At the risk of offending some of our folks in the firm, if I had to say that there is one person who we simply couldn’t do without at Beasley Allen, it would be Willa Carpenter.
