What a gift to hang out with the “best listeners in the world every morning”. The goal of the show is to mirror the “welcoming heart of God”. We try to offer you a good laugh on your way to work too because life brings so many challenges and laughter is the best medicine. I’ve been doing mornings at the Fish since October, 2000. Kevin is the brother I thought I always wanted. LOL.
My husband Glenn is one of my best gifts in life. Not only did he move his Certified Financial Planning company to Atlanta so I could take the job at The Fish, he’s my biggest supporter. He makes me laugh so hard. We got married right after I finished college and Glenn was in Law School. We met after meeting briefly on campus at Wheaton College and then traveling that summer with a group of students and professors to Greece, Israel, Egypt and Italy. He proposed to me in a hot air balloon!
We don’t have kids but we have two “furry babies”: Jackson the Scottish Terrier and Alex – a little girl mutt. We are insane dog lovers. My 5 sisters and Glenn’s sister have together given us 8 nieces and 3 nephews who we love spending time with. Glenn and I are our godparents to Kevin & Tracy’s 4 kids. We won’t let them fly together. Lol.
I’m kind of a “Tom Boy”. I hate shopping, and love trail running, mountain biking, road cycling, hiking, cross-country skiing and have run 2 half marathons and 2 full marathons.
FAVORITE FISH ARTIST:
That’s not a fair question! I like so many. I’m all for girl-power and local gals so I’ll go with Jamie Grace, Laura Story and Francesca Battestelli – such great, beautiful women.
The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning has to be at the top. I love a good novel too and am really sad when the book ends – I miss the characters! Ginger Garrett lives here in Atlanta and her novels bring history and the Bible to life like no other! Nicholas Sparks novels are soo good. A couple of other novels I really enjoyed is “The Secret Life of Bees” and “The Art of Racing in the Rain.”
Oh man, I love movies. A few top picks – Shawshank Redemption, Mr. Hollland’s Opus, The Notebook, Midnight in Paris, Nine Months. I love watching action adventure with my husband too.
THINGS I LIKE TO DO WHEN NOT AT THE FISH:
First choice would be spending time with family, friends and my dogs. But I also LOVE being outside too doing all kinds of sports.
