What is your life verse and why?
Isaiah 26:3 – You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! In a broken world that can tempt us to feel anything but peace, I think it’s important to stand on the promise of this verse — that regardless of what’s happening around us, we can have perfect peace when we trust in the Lord.
A genie gives you three wishes—what are they?
Ok, what are the ground rules here? Is anything off limits? Like, no wishing for more wishes? I’m a 1 on the Enneagram, and I need to know these things before making any decisions.
If you could time travel, when and where would you go?
I want to go back to the time my parents were growing up and see if all the stories I’ve heard really happened the way they tell them!
What’s your favorite fast food chain?
Is Panera a fast food chain? I feel like they might be insulted if I categorize them that way. But Panera.
What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?
A teacher. Or Kristi Yamaguchi. I loved figure skating! I wasn’t very good at it, but I loved it!
If you were an animal, what animal would you want to be?
A panda. Their lives seem to consist of sleeping and playing, and everyone thinks they’re adorable.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I really want to say chocolate, but in the interest of getting other food groups in there… tacos.
What’s the career highlight you’re most proud of?
Well first, the WCIC team is amazing, and I love getting to see all the different ways they serve our community on and off the air. Some of the best people you will meet, with the best hearts. One thing I worked closely on over the years is bringing concerts into correctional centers across central Illinois. So many men and women in those facilities wrote notes saying how, for the first time in years, those concerts made them feel normal… human. And getting to watch them listen to the songs and soak in the truth that God loves them and they have value is one of the most moving things I’ve ever experienced.
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
Hit snooze/try to figure out what day it is. I am not a morning person.
Do you think iced coffee should only be consumed in the summer or all year round?
I think coffee should be consumed never. Gross.
What’s your favorite family tradition?
Summer vacations in Colorado. Very thankful my sister and I are still able to make it out to “our” cabin with our parents every couple years.
