Tell us a little bit about your family:

I have been married to my husband Davis Anderson for 3 years now, we love to travel and adventure together. He keeps me laughing and has been a steady support system for me. I owe so much to my parents, Pete and Caron Alwinson, they raised me to know and love Jesus by continually pointing me to the cross and showing me grace time and time again.
