What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
Jeremiah 29:11. It is comforting to know that God’s plan for me is good and that he only wants what is best for me.

Where did you grow up, and where have you lived?
I grew up in Festus, MO, 30 miles south of St. Louis. I lived there until I was 20 when I married and moved to Easley, SC. In SC, I have lived in Easley, Travelers Rest, and Taylors.

What do you love about serving at MRCA? 
It is easy to serve at MRCA when you know you have the love, prayers, and support of other faculty, staff, administration, and families.

Besides Jesus, who is the person you would most want to meet? 
Apostle Paul

What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, crafting, decorating, and shopping

What was the best vacation you ever took and why?
My best vacation was when Tim, my husband, and I traveled to St. Lucia to get married almost 21 years ago. Also, Israel is very neat. To step in the same places Jesus did really makes the Bible come to life.

What is your favorite way to spend a weekend?
My favorite weekends involve hanging around the house and watching movies with my husband, maybe some cooking and baking, all in my PJs.

Which Bible story has grown your faith the most?
I really identify with the Israelites and the amount of times they turn their backs on God, only to repent and for Him to rescue them. He is a good father that loves His children.
