Who is your hero?
Clearly the most obvious answer is Jesus, but I would also say any person who looks full into the face of their pain, their adversity and chooses to rise up and take hold of the freedom Christ died to give them, just the normal every day people we may never get to hear about but whose lives and victories we will celebrate in eternity-they are my heroes!
What’s your biggest fear?
To get to an old age, lose my marbles and cease being able to make a difference to the world.
What is your favourite book?
The Bible is top of the list but other than that- Lord of the Rings, all three of them. My friends know that I’m a secret Tolkien geek. (though not so secret now!)
Most embarrassing moment?
Pinching my husband’s bum at a party, only to realise it wasn’t my husband when he turned round…!
What’s your secret talent?
I can do somersaults on the trampoline, does that count?
What inspires you?
Freedom, hope, transformation, future, destiny, purpose, passion- i am inspired by seeing people triumph over trauma, and have victory over death!
What’s your dream?
To live full and die empty; to bring up my children to love God and serve His purposes and to see this generation turn to Christ…oh and an all expenses paid trip to Bora Bora!
