How did you meet your spouse?
I met Matt through a mutual friend at Appalachian State University during freshman year. I remember thinking…”This guy is different! Who is he?” I had never met anyone like him. After we got to know each other, he asked me out and I said no (even though I really liked him!) I told him that I wasn’t ready to date because I wanted to spend time in college figuring out my future. He continued to ask me out for a whole month before I finally said yes and now we’re married with our second child on the way!
What is your greatest joy in ministry?
I love meeting and helping people, especially with the benevolence fund - each person has such a unique and special story that God has given them. I also enjoy supporting our pastors so they are able to serve others. I love sharing the LOVE and FUN and FREEDOM of Jesus!
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to cook and try new recipes, read, sing, play piano, and spend lots of time with my family. I also like trying different crafts (knitting, painting, refinishing furniture) but I haven’t found anything that I’m good at yet!
