What do you love about NH?
I love the blessing of receiving the opportunity to care for the church body that God places before me and around me at New Hope.

What year did you join staff?

How did you come to know Jesus?
I grew up in a home where Christ was the center, and I recognized my need for a Savior at a young age. I kneeled with my mama in prayer one night after a most amazing sunset that drew me to take that step.

What’s your favorite Bible verse?
There are so many, so I will share a couple of my favorites. Psalm 143:8, “Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You.” And Isaiah 26:3-4, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever. For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.”

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?
I love to dry my laundry outside on the clothesline.

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?
I would like to learn to play the bells in a bell choir because they sound so peaceful.
