    • MUSIC - I love worship music (Lauren Daigle, Mercy Me, Toby Mac, and the list goes on) I also like country, pop, and a little rap. I hate rock…well I’ve never actually given it a chance.
    • BOOKS - I will be honest…I don’t like reading, but I do read the Bible every day (even if it’s just a verse or two). I did recently order an Andy Stanley leadership book and a devotional (maybe I will be turning into a bookworm soon).
    • HOBBIES - I love bird watching, I dabble with photography, and could spend forever in an antique shop.
    • IF YOU KNOW ME LONG ENOUGH YOU WILL HEAR ME SAY - I tend to say “glory” or sing the word “gloria” at the most random times. I like to make people smile so instead of saying “it was nice to see you” I say “it was nice to see me”, and if you are leaving and say “see you later” I usually say “thanks for the warning”. “Hey girl hey” is another one.
    • THE VERSE I LIVE BY - I feel like my verses tend to change through different stages in life. Right now I proclaim 1Timothy 4:12 over our youth ministry “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
    • MY FAVORITE DESSERT - Cheesecake!
    • SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME - I love to laugh/giggle. I am terrified of heights, I have a black Lab named Pete, an evil cat named Rose, and I am married to the most wonderful man in the world.

    • THE VERSE I LIVE BY - I actually have two favorites:  2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God, is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of the soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart. 
    • MY FAVORITE DESSERT -  Cheesecake with cherries on top and coconut cake.
