Her favorite thing about working at TCS is teaching Bible to her preschool students, because the stories they talk about are so vital, and the songs they do are fun and uplifting. She loves to see the child-like faith of the students. Sharing the truths with them at their level brings the Bible to life for her in ways it hasn't before.
Her favorite Bible verse is Colossians 2:6-7,
"And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness,"
because it is inspiring and helps her to remember how her faith is for her whole life and all aspects of her life - and is something that will continue to grow - and is something to be continually given attention and focus. The result of this kind of fostering her faith will be a heart overflowing with thankfulness.

Her favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11,

We as Christians facing difficult situations today can take comfort in Jeremiah 29:11 knowing that it is not a promise to immediately rescue us from hardship or suffering, but rather a promise that God has a plan for our lives and regardless of our current situation, He can work through it to prosper us and give us a hope and a future.
