I’m a PK (pastor’s kid) with two amazing parents who have led by example in ministry. I’m the oldest of three with two incredible sisters (and their husbands aren’t bad either!). “Auntie Mo” to two precious nieces and one handsome nephew. Surrogate Auntie to a multitude of sweet kiddos. Speaker and author. I am passionately in love with my Savior and the Author of my story. May I be forgettable and may He be memorable.
