I have the extreme joy of being the wife to humble, dedicated and solid James Romero, since June 2015. His pursuit and desire to be a man for the Lord is what makes him most attractive to me, his winsome laugh and eye-catching looks are hard to miss though! You will usually catch me usually doing a few things, serving with the re:generation ministry, staying active on a run outside and/or pushing the treadmill, or giving into my sugar addiction by baking something delicious. I’ll share my soft-baked Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe if you ask!
I’m TEXAS born and raised, growing up in the North Dallas area; however, I found my way to the state of Oklahoma for 4 years of college where I studied education. The Lord was gracious to me in the many years of isolation and seeking to find my identity in others. After coming back to Dallas post college, I joined my family at Watermark, where I was challenged to go beyond the surface and superficial life I lived and started to live authentically in community and grow in patience. When I finally realized that I was just existing day to day and that I didn’t know what my identify was secure in, I was met with love, provision, and opportunity to grow in who I am in Christ, as his daughter. I now know that I must be rooted in Christ alone, and nothing else. And I seek to continually grow in the grace and knowledge of him, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).
Prior to joining the Equipping Team, I taught middle schoolers math for almost 6 years. If you had asked me what I wanted to be post college, leadership and administration in education was my goal. However, as I started to seek to follow and know the God I love, my desires changed as I sought to be a vessel for him, and to use the gift from him for him! Patiently and prayerfully, my husband and I paid off $75K in college debt and waited for the Lord to provide next steps. Serving on the Equipping Team has been a blessing and I am thankful to be a part of the mission and work of his people here at Watermark.
