Guest Speaker: 
Amy Storms

Amy Storms is a wife, mom, and writer in Joplin, Missouri. An Oklahoma girl at heart, she lives with her pastor-husband Andy, their kids Nathan, Anne, Molly, and about a hundred other "sons" in a dorm at her beloved alma mater, Ozark Christian College. She is also currently the communications director at Ozark Christian College.
Along with guacamole and Dr. Pepper, words are some of her very favorite things. She loves to read words, craft them on the page, and, of course, say them. Too many of them.
