How did you become a Christian?
I grew up in a Christian family and have always gone to church with my parents. At the age of 14 i moved to a larger church and met my youth worker who inspired me not only in my faith but also to become a youth worker! God continued to move in my life as a teenager and revelaed himself more and more to me. As i continue my walk with God it’s a huge learning curve and God continues to change me everyday. God has always surrounded me with amazing women and men of God who have challenegd and encouraged me to grow.
Are you sporty?
I go to the gym a few times a week and enjoy doing mad challenges with them! I enjoy long distance running and ran a marathon as a teenager. I used to play hockey, but sadly have no time for that these days! I love football and support Man United (yes yes dont say it! they are still better then Liverpool! If this comment is not here i will know that Jono has edited my reponses!)
If you had too much money what would you do with it?
I would give it away to charity and also make sure my parents were comfortable.
What do you watch on the television?
Football and tennis – i am presently one very happy girl with Wimbledon and the World Cup on! I also love Spooks and Without a Trace.
What is your favourite Bible verse/passage and why?
The verse where God promises us that he has plans to prosper and not harm us – i love that God has this awesome plan for us and that it’s a plan that will prosper us and bring us blessings. We have an awesome God who knows us all individually and has a unique plan for each of us! WOW!!
