I grew up in Texas, but Georgia is forever home to me. It's where I married my husband and where my kids were born. A big piece of my heart sits in a small coastal town in Southern Georgia.
I kind of fell into radio, with zero intentions of being on-air (I was painfully shy... still am but I hide it better). One day a DJ got sick, and 18 years later here I am. I really love what I do and I am thankful for the many opportunities I've been given.
My perfect weekend would include some kind of on the water activity with my kids and husband. I just love the water. Ocean, lake, river, or stream; if I can dip my toes in it, I'm happy.
I get really nerdy when I get to talk with people about the youth department at their church. My husband and I have served in youth and college ministry for over 10 years now. I love brainstorming about different ways to guide teens through such crazy times in their lives. Plus, you haven't lived until you've spent the night at a youth lock-in playing capture the flag at 3 am. Some of my favorite stories start with "We we're at youth camp...".
One of the greatest pieces of advice I've ever received didn't come in the form of advice. My husband and I were having lunch with our then Pastor and Friend, Brother Roland Dann. At the time there had been a lot of debate over the location of the nails. Were they in Jesus' hands or wrists? I asked Bro. Roland what he thought, and he responded with "Does it matter? What really matters is that he was hanging on a cross and dyeing for our sins.". That one statement, 15 years ago, is something that stuck with me. I constantly ask myself if my focus is on the nails or the cross.
I'm so excited and blessed to get to work with such a talent and God focused group of people. I'm blessed to be a part of what God is doing here.
