Favorite Bible verse: Isaiah 42:5-6a “This is what God the Lord says—the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: ‘I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand.'” I like it because it shows both God’s might and power, but also shows that He loves us enough to come alongside us in an intimate and personal way.

Favorite Biblical Hero and why: Esther, because she was a woman who didn’t have the right to speak up, but she did anyway because she trusted that God had placed her in her position for a specific purpose.
