TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY - Chris and I have celebrated 16 years of marriage and are blessed with ten-year-old twins, our daughter Sadie and our son, Rivers.


WHERE WERE YOU BORN? - I was born and raised in Louisville and have attended First Baptist of Louisville my entire life.  


WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL? - I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Go Dawgs!


WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO AWAY FROM MINISTRY? - As a family, we enjoy attending sporting events at Mississippi State, whether that's football, baseball or basketball.  We love all sports.  We also love to travel. Our favorite spots away from home are the beach or Disney World.  We also travel around the surrounding states for cheerleading competitions and baseball tournaments.


WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING MINISTRY AT FBC? - I have been the ministry assistant at First Baptist Church of Louisville for 15 years.  I enjoy helping others and watching as our church members grow.  Children who attended when I started in 2000 now have families of their own.  I consider it such a joy to be a part of their lives.


WHAT IS THE GREATEST SPIRITUAL TRUTH YOU HAVE DISCOVERED? - The greatest truth I have learned is that no matter what storm you are going through, God is always there.  Praise him during the good times and during the storms of life as well.  


TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW - Many people don't know that I was saved and baptized here at First Baptist when I was 9.
