RUBY: How long have you attended Troy United Methodist Church?
Sarah: a little over a year
RUBY: What drew you to this church?
Sarah: We first attended the preschool, and then we tried the VBS in 2010, and the children loved it. The people were so friendly and the church was very kid and family- oriented. We wanted a church home that felt like an extended family, and we found that at Troy.
RUBY: Which service do you typically attend?
RUBY: Share a favorite Bible verse and/or inspirational song, and why this is a favorite.
Sarah: The song "Sweet Mercies," which is a kids praise song we sing at school. It is one of my favorites because I used to catch my daughter singing it when she thought no one was looking.
RUBY: Tell us about your involvement at Troy UMC and in the community.
Sarah: Teacher's Aid in the 2-year-old class with Mrs. Mary at 1st Step Learning Center, and I co-lead a Daisy troop.
RUBY: I know you are an avid reader. Name a favorite book, and why it is your favorite.
Sarah: As far as fiction...I am a huge zombie fan. For non- fiction, I would have to say The Lady and the Panda. It was shocking to read how animals were treated in the early days of zoos. Also it was a grim reminder that the best intentions of people are not always in the best interest of animals.
RUBY: What would you try if you had no fear?
Sarah: cliff diving
RUBY: Tell us about your family.
Sarah: I met my husband Kris in 1997, and we got married in 1999. We had Ava in 2005 and Jacob in 2008. We have a lot of pets. We have a weekly family game night, and in nice weather, we spend most of our time outside.
RUBY: How may we contact you in order to make a further connection?
Sarah: e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
