1.)    What is your vocation?

 I'm a student (soon to be graduate) at Winthrop. 

2.)    Tell us about your family:

 My family lives in my hometown of Walhalla, SC. My mom is a teacher and my step-dad owns his own business. I have a younger brother who is 17 and an older step-brother who is 25.

3.)    Who was the main human influence that lead you to a relationship with Christ?

 Honestly the biggest influence on my relationship with Christ has been the church and my community of friends. Coming to Park Baptist 2 years ago sparked the desire to grow in Christ and my friends constantly push me and sharpen me! 

4.)    What is your favorite Bible Verse?

 Romans 8:38-39 

5.)    What has the Lord been teaching you over the last 6 months?

The last 6 months have been full of God showing me his faithfulness. I've been blown away by how the Lord has provided for me in these past few months and it's just been a great reminder of His power and love for us. 

6.)    What is something most people don’t know about you?

I guess something people don't know about me is that I once killed a bear with nothing but a small fishing hook and a bouncy ball. Just kidding. But I did hear a mountain lion one time while camping. 

7.)    Do you have any specific prayer requests?

 I'm in need of prayers as I go over seas this summer to Bulgaria. I've never been that far away from home and the language is so hard to pick up! So lots of prayers for this summer.
