If you could run away from all your responsibilities, where would you go and why?
The mountains or anywhere in the great outdoors. I love people, but nature and alone-time energize me! I also love spending time with my family and dear friends.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Bonzu Bonzu gogo rinenda! (This is an African proverb that literally says, “Slowly, slowly, the log is being chopped up.”) It means that BIG things are possible but they take time. Axe swing by axe swing, chip by chip, a huge log can be chopped up with perseverance. In other words, “Big things don’t usually happen overnight, but are the product of many, many decisions to take small steps forward.”
Another is, “You can do pretty just as cheap as you can do ugly!”
What’s the best advice you’ve ever given?
Never apologize for your home. True hospitality is about people, not things.
Which types of ministry are you most passionate about and why?
I love helping women connect to each other in relationships, and being a friend match-maker! Seeing women discover their gifting and passions and be able to use those for God’s kingdom is one of my greatest joys. Having any part of women learning to believe the truth of God’s word over them is an honor. I love to encourage, pray for, and help others in their walk of faith. Life Groups are another passion of mine, I love connecting with small groups of people. My parents were Life Group leaders for most of my growing-up years and we hosted a life group in our home for years and years. I learned firsthand the value of small groups and the relationships that are formed there.
