What is one of your favorite quotes?

It’s a close tie between:

“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” – Buddha

and

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” – Ernest Hemingway

 

If you could be any fictional character, whom would you choose?

Probably Lorelai Gilmore. I’m obsessed with Gilmore Girls. 

 

What is your favorite book?

Beauty Will Save the World by Brian Zahnd and Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans

 

What makes you laugh the most?

My husband Nick and my sister and brother

 

What is your favorite music?

Music that makes you think. Lyrics always draw me into a song more than the beat. I want music to tell a good story. I adore music that tells the beautiful mystery of the triune God. 

 

What do you do for fun?

Spend time with friends, watch what’s in my Netflix queue, have engaging conversations about God’s unfolding story of redemption over coffee, take my dogs to the dog park, try new restaurants or breweries with my husband (who is way cooler than me!). 

 

What do you love about what you do?

My favorite part about what I do is reminding people there is hope because of Christ Jesus. The love of God is grand, inspiring and breathtaking. I believe when people know this and know God is still concerned and involved in our world it motivates them to live differently. I believe it changes our behavior and we begin to lay down our own desires for the furthering of the Kingdom. The intimate and challenging call of Christ can change our communities, our families and all of creation. I love walking alongside people through the pain and victory as we partner with God to bring heaven here to earth!
