1. Where did you grow up?

Allentown, Pennsylvania.

2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

The story of Deborah.

She is one of my heroes. Deborah is called by her own name and she is known because of the call of God on her life.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

A recent movie I love is “Queen of Katwe.”

The story line is powerful; plus, it connects me with Kampala, Uganda, a place our family of five once called “home.”

4. Who are three people you admire?

Patrick Chanda (pastor and mission director in Kitwe, Zambia, who died Aug. 3, 2017), Georgann and the late C. David Miller (my parents), and L. Timothy Manarin (my husband).

5. What is one little-known fact about yourself?

When I was in seventh grade, I wanted to go to New York City (only an hour and a half from home) to high school and become an actor; however, I experienced a call to ministry the summer before eighth grade.
