My favorite authors/ books are the Bible, CS Lewis, AW Tozer, John Maxwell, Henry Cloud, Simon Sinek, (with some Trump thrown in there too!) I grew up listening to Rush Limbaugh, Delilah, and Paul Harvey, and I’m currently listening to Tucker Carlson, Charlie Kirk, Rick Brown, and Benny Johnson on Podcast. I have an appreciation for all kinds of music (my son is a drummer!) so my Spotify is pretty eclectic with Oldies, 80’s rock, Contemporary Christian, Jazz, instrumental, and some Skillet thrown in as well.

My favorite thing is hearing stories, and I’m looking forward to hearing yours!
