Tell us a bit about yourself…
Twenty-three years ago, I married my high school sweetheart and matric dance partner. We have three gorgeous children – Matthew (18), Natalie (16), and our laat lammetjie, Cameron (9), who is the self-professed favourite in the family.
Prawns and sushi
One thing we wouldn’t know about you?
I am a Top Gear car fanatic! On a trip back from America, I once watched the series for nine hours straight. It would have been my dream go on a live set with the old crew. I got close when we saw them live in Durban.
Favourite thing to do on a Saturday?
I love to wake up late, have no set agenda and see what happens during the day…maybe catch a movie (it’s our favourite thing to do).
I love being creative – decorating my home, doing crafts, etc. I also love reading – mainly fiction – but I have been influenced by my husband and have gotten into non-fiction as well.
What makes you come alive?
- being with people
- hearing my husband’s laugh
- making sure people know and walk into the significant life that’s theirs
Are we allowed to know what you’re speaking on at the ladies event?
I have been feeling a season of “name change” over our lives as women…come and find out more. The rest is a surprise!
What’s your favourite story in the bible and why?
My favourite story is the story of Esther, a young woman, who, out of great sacrifice and obedience, put her dreams aside and obeyed…all for the sake of others. It is inspiring stuff and a legacy I would like to leave one day.
