What Three Words Would Describe You?
Kind, Friendly, and Dependable.
What Are Your Hobbies and Interests?
I enjoy reading. I typically read romance novels; however, I will read anything that looks interesting. I often read the Bible, and I especially like Romans 8:28 – “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
I also enjoy writing, typically I write about someone, and sometimes my stories are made up. My goal is to write my autobiography one day.
Where Do You Find Encouragement?
I find encouragement in God first. I also find it in people – my brother, mom, and dad. My boyfriend of nine years, Alan, also encourage me. We talk every day!
What Do You Believe Are Your God-Given Talents?
I can get along with a diverse group of people. I have a friend that is a Deacon in the Catholic Church. He shared this with me one time, and it has stuck with me.
How Do You Inspire Others?
I inspire others through my determination and by being kind to everyone. When others are in distress, I can put myself in their shoes. I can do this as I relate their struggles with my own experiences.
What Is Your Favorite Thing About Echoing Hills?
My favorite thing is Camp Echoing Hills and the staff. Everyone who works at Echoing Hills works very hard to ensure we have fun while providing support, enabling us to remain independent.
Featured Faces is a way to get to know some of the individuals that make Echoing Hills so special! As we focus on those we serve and the team members that serve them, we will also focus on our 2022 theme – Encourage, Believe, Inspire.
We invite you to reflect on these three words and think: What can I do to encourage others? How do I believe my God-given talents can change the world? How can I let my words and actions inspire someone today? You may notice you are changing someone’s life, maybe even your own!
