Member Profile - Paige Kisker

1.)    What is your vocation?

I believe the Lord has called me to do international missions. I am working on a Biblical Counseling degree from Southeastern, and I have a passion for loving and counseling women, especially teenagers that struggle with self-confidence and self-worth issues.

2.)    Tell us about your family:

 

My mom, dad, and little sister, Hannah, mean the world to me. My parents have always loved and encouraged me to the best of their ability. Like every family, we have our differences, but I have never doubted my family's love for me. 

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

Mary Courtney was my Younglife leader in high school. I believe she definitely planted the seed, but I did not grow and mature in my faith until I came to Winthrop. She taught me how we were designed to be in a relationship with Jesus. I believe my friends I made freshmen watered the seeds if you may. My community truly exemplifies what brotherhood and sisterhood in Christ looks like, and they are continuing to grow and challenge me in my walk with the Lord.   

 

4.)    What is your favorite Bible Verse?

2nd Corinthians 5:17 

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

The Lord has been teaching me how to more genuinely and consistently rely on Him in my current season of transition. He is humbling me, showing me how I do not handle change as well I thought I did. During this new and challenging time in my life, I am learning that He is my true rock to lean on, not my worldly circumstances or even my close friends and family. This world is only temporary, but God, His promises, and His redeeming love are everlasting. 

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

I find it oddly satisfying to cross things off my "to-do" list. Embarrassingly enough, I sometimes will make a silly, unnecessary list just so I can scratch things off throughout the day. :) 

7.)    Do you have any specific prayer requests?

Please pray that I am able to glorify the Lord through my new teaching job at Providence Classical School. Sometimes, I feel very anxious and a sense of inadequacy. I just pray that He works through my insecurities, and I am able to love and grow those children I have been entrusted with.
