1. What do you do for fun?
The way I view fun always begins with coffee. I love trips to the farmers market with my love, going to the beach with my dogs, or making late night grilled cheeses with the fams, watching episodes of Game of Thrones.

2. What are you passionate about?
I've always had a passion for children and animals. Their innocence is both adorable and admirable.

3. What is something that most people don't know about you?
Night lights will not do, I have to sleep with my lamp on the entire night.

4. Everyone should read...
The Gospel by JD Greear. It's a savory book for the soul.

5. What excites you about Restored Church? 
I never took the gospel in a personal way until I came to restored where I learned about the gospel. I love how every message always points to Jesus and is always applicable to my walk. My view of the cross continues to grow because of my understanding of His grace. The church cares about understanding the text of the bible, encourages transparency and humbling ourselves denying self-righteousness and living in Jesus-righteousness. Having our identity and security primarily influenced by King Jesus and being a church thats on mission to make disciples who make disciples, gathering around the community rather the community gather to us. Restored may not have the financial means to comfort us in the heat of the summer, nor fancy TVs and lights that cater to our entertainment during worship but they will offer painful but beautiful heart surgery to be more like His son and that is good enough for me because Jesus is enough.
