Amy Theis

Amy was born in Billings, Montana and attended Oklahoma Wesleyan University. She, her husband, Bob, and their daughter, Allison, have been attending Verde since Fall of 2012. Amy and Bob have been married for 21 years and have been in pastoral ministry for most of that time, pastoring churches in Arizona, North Dakota, Montana and South Dakota. They are currently on sabbatical while their daughter finishes high school. When she isn’t working, Amy enjoys writing, baking, reading and working on a variety of craft projects. The family also enjoys learning local history, sightseeing in the area and travelling; they would eventually like to see all 50 states.

What is your favorite book?
I am an avid reader and have too many favorites to choose just one.

What or who is your most influential book or author?
It sounds so cliché, but it would have to be the Bible or, like so many others, I wouldn’t be who I am today.

What is your favorite food?
Who doesn’t like to eat?! My favorite comfort food is probably a toss-up of something Mexican or Italian.

What is something most people wouldn’t know about you?
I’ve written a variety of stories for three different newspapers.

What is the most exciting thing for you to see God do in the lives of people?
I love watching people grow enough in their walk with God to be willing to be used by Him to minister to others.
