What schools have you attended since high school? James Madison University, The University of Virginia, Mitchell Community College, Virginia Commonwealth University –B.A., Religious Studies
In addition to the Bible, what books have influenced your thought? How God Became King, by N.T.

Deserted island, three albums: Darrell Evans’ Freedom, John Michael Talbot’s The Lord’s Supper, Rita Springer’s Effortless. But I’d rather take the complete works of my favorite three authors (sorry, Frank!)
What do you do for fun? Have adventures with the fam! We’ve tent camped from the Florida Keys up into Maine, as far west as the Colorado Rockies, and countless places in between. Hiking, mountain biking (my absolute fav), “yard therapy,” most anything that involves dirt, sweat, and bugs. This comes in handy when parenting three boys.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Daddy God’s little girl.
