    -What is your favorite hobby? Shopping!!

    -What year did you graduate? High school in 1999, college in 2003.

    -Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip? Neither, not worth the calories. Mustard please!

We don’t have fun and fancy churches in New England, one of the main reasons why i want to move back to TN is so i can get involved in a big mega church.

    -What is your favorite song right now? I don’t have one right now.

    -If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Italy…to meet my Italian husband. I’m holding out for a hot Italian guy…so if you know one let me know!

    In your own opinion, what has been your biggest accomplishment so far? Graduating college! Not that i had any more of a struggle than your average college student, but i think it’s impressive that i made it 4 years living in TN away from home, passed my classes, and didn’t like run out of money or something. Now looking back it was the best 4 years of my life thus far!

    What is your favorite song right now?

    anything by Jon McLoughlin. Specifically tracks 2,4, 11 and 12….and all the rest of them too πŸ˜‰

    South Africa, Across America to visit my blogging family and of course…Australia πŸ˜‰

    Tam, I’m glad you posted your answers, too! That’s awesome you write songs! If you have any resources for where I could read stories of what women have battled after having an abortion I would really appreciate it. I don’t know if you have any sites or anything. It would really help. I have been collaborating a lot with this group of incredible women in my hood on some social justice issues (we just put on a Save Darfur benefit!). They are all very liberal. That means we agree on a lot, like loving people, but not on things like abortion. They do a lot with Planned Parenthood. I feel like we might have “that” convo sometime and I’d really like to have some stories to prepare my heart with in case we do.

    And just to clarify: not to argue with them, to be sure. Just so I don’t have to awkwardly avoid the subject and also be able to give a heartfelt answer from a women’s perspective more than I normally could (since it’s basically a women’s rights issue for them). Then at least they’d know that my reasons are love and not because I want to oppress women.

    Are you working the job you dreamed of as a child? Pretty much. I always wanted to do something vocally and I felt called to ministry at the age of 12 so here I am now as a Worship Pastor. So yeah, I guess so!

    Are you involved in ministry or some form of outreach? I work in ministry full time as a worship pastor.

    What is your favorite song right now? “Whatever You’re Doing” (Something Heavenly) by Sanctus Real

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Too many to list – maybe Ireland or Italy.

    I forgot the last questions about my biggest accomplishment so far….

    This is hard. Maybe that I built a worship ministry from nothing and we now have multiple worship leaders and several teams. Maybe that I’ve stayed at the same church 10 years because it’s been tempting to run and hide at times. Maybe just raising three kids!
