What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Helping to connect the life saving work of pregnancy centers to the transformational mission of the local church.

What is your favorite Bible verse/book/chapter/section? Why?

Hebrews 12:11 … No Discipline is pleasant at the time but painful, later on however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. … This promise I claim because we will all face storms, but to know that every storm is a training session helps me focus on the Lord and only glance at the circumstances.

Why are you pro-life? 

In addition to Biblical Truth, a brave young woman chose to give me life (in an era when being single and pregnant was reason to send a young woman away until after the baby was born), and she was courageous enough to place me for adoption so that I could have a life that for whatever reason she was not able to give me. I’m pro-life because I was a life redeemed.

Where are you from? Where did you grow up?

Seminole, Florida. Just minutes away from the best Gulf beaches in Florida!

Who is your favorite fictional character and why?

I have two because one needs the other, Frodo and Sam of the Lord of The Rings. They were called to a mission beyond themselves that called for them to be selfless and to face great opposition. They exemplify our faith journey, and our pro-life mission; individually each must make the decision to step into the calling and collectively we must support each other on the journey.

Who is your pro-life hero or role model?
