Each month, we are going to take time to get to know one of our church members just a little bit better. We hope this short interview allows us to lean-in and helps us know one another better and grow together as a body of believers.
Tell us a little bit about you and your family.
I grew up in Brandon, MS and graduated in Chemical Engineering from Ole Miss in 2015. I interned at Hunt Refining Company while still in college and came back as one of their engineers full time after graduation. My parents are still living and working in Brandon so Mississippi is still my home during the holidays. I am very proud of my only big brother who is in his first deployment in the Middle East with the Army. I am not married but am dating and enjoying this stage of life.
Can you share one way that God has been faithful to you recently or something he is teaching you?
Patience patience patience. If you had told me I would still be in Tuscaloosa three and half years ago, I would have laughed in your face. God has taught me to wait on His timing and to know He is so faithful. My mom has told me since I was a child to "Grow where you're planted." 2018 has been the year I feel like I have grown the most. I've tried new things and gotten out of my comfort zone. I have gotten more involved with Trinity and love the community I have here (especially my supper club). My relationships have gotten deeper, and I love my girl's group at Trinity. I still look forward to going to work everyday and love my job. God has taught me to be patient and work hard. His plan is much better than the plan I had for myself three and a half years ago.
