Greg and I met on a blind date in 1997 after my complaining to a friend that “I couldn’t find a nice guy”. We got married in New York, 2 weeks after 9/11/2001. We have been blessed with two sons, Jake & Scott.
Growing up in New York, my family attended Catholic Church. I felt like I just went through the motions of my first communion and confirmation. It wasn’t until I moved to Texas after college and attended a “mega church”, that I learned more about the Bible and the Gospel came to life. It was like going from black and white to COLOR!
Something Most People Don’t Know:
God spoke to me when I was 18 years old. When I was in college I had doubts as many young people do…I knew God was the center of it all but questioned whether Jesus was the one true way to salvation. When a friend and I were discussing this one day on a road trip, I voiced these concerns out loud and the Lord spoke to me immediately by writing my last name, in large letters in graffiti on the highway overpass, and did that grab my attention! My maiden name, “Pompei” is not very common, so I know He was talking to me directly, telling me, “Yes, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light!”
My Trademark Expression:
“You are a rock star!”
Besides the Bible, my recommended reading would be:
All Chicken Soup for the Soul books by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Amy New-mark
The Art of Neighboring by Jay Pathak & Dave Runyon
I’m most excited about:
Attending BSF on our campus! I have loved the fellowship with the ladies in our small group discussions and highly recommend checking it out!
My Favorite TV Shows:
“Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins” with Guy Fieri…it is the one show my entire family will watch together and enjoy! I also love almost all HGTV & Food Network shows too!
In My Free Time, I usually:
Spend time with my family, take my 87-year-old dad thrift-store-shopping, go to my son’s athletic events, and daydream about all the home improvements I’d like to do that most likely won’t ever get done.
