What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The most influential book I have read has been Get Out of Your Head: Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts by Jennie Allen. This book has been something I read with a Bible study and has impacted my walk with Christ the most and really made me stop and think about what actually goes on inside my head and what I can do about it to best serve others and the Lord.

How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere?
To the Geneva kindergartens: I remember being your age and imagining being a senior but never really thought it would happen because it seemed like such a big task. But if you work hard and pursue relationships and activities that you love, Geneva is more than just school and will become your family. As frustrated as you can get, remember why you are here, and that Geneva is a place you can serve the Lord like no other.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope Geneva never gets too serious about everything. Students can be who God made them be without judgement and I hope that never changes. There is something so accepting about this school and I hope that never goes away.
