Meet Amala

My life growing up was about receiving an education that was not so easily accessible for my parents, I regularly attended art school and found my worth in being an athlete and a band nerd. Occasionally my mom would impart words of wisdom through bible stories, however I typically lived my life as a "good" person. It was not until midway through undergrad I heard about this individual called Jesus in a new light and I wanted to know more about this man who gave His life for me. Shortly after that I became baptized, unfortunately due to logistics of moving back home after college I stopped surrounding myself with a local body. As you can imagine, the lonely Christian is the enemy's playground, I started to party with a few friends from work. Finding my worth through my appearance and what others thought of me consumed me and led to overwhelming anxiety. The Lord and His sovereign grace led me through the doors of Watermark Church, where he has continued to pursue me daily and remind me that my worth is found in Him, and that my sins are not too burdensome for Him to carry. Proverbs 31:30 reminds me that my beauty is fleeting, but the praise I give Him is eternal.

I graduated in 2014 from Texas Woman’s University with a degree in Nutrition, four years later I decided to pursue a master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of North Texas. It is through God’s grace alone that I have the privilege to serve on staff with the Children’s Team.

I love to go and catch a good film with friends or curl up with my dog and read a good book. If you are itching to attend a museum and need a friend I am your girl! Call me up!
