Weekly Devotion
Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
And when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
And when the black cloak drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
Well we're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

-The Avett Brothers

This week’s advisor spotlight: Meredith High
Meredith, a high school youth advisor, grew up in Chapel Hill, NC, where she also attended UNC-Chapel Hill. Meredith now works for admissions at Davidson College. Meredith’s husband, Cory, also serves as a youth advisor at FPC!
“I had a really fun, tight-knit youth group in high school and loved being part of that community,” she said. “Now I want to be part of providing similar community for FPC youth!”
Favorite Sound?   This is hard! I don’t know that I could pick just one favorite sound, but I love listening to a good rain/thunderstorm when I’m all cozied up inside.
Beach or Mountains?   Mmmmmbeach. Hard to choose!
Most-used app?   Honestly, probably Google Maps ¯\_( )_/¯
Favorite Dessert ? Any kind of fruit pie/cobbler.
Children? Spouse? Pets?  I’m married to Cory High. No pets yet, but I point out just about every cute puppy I see to Cory just to remind him that I would like one.
Olympic Gold Medal, Nobel Prize or Academy Award? An Academy Award for best performance in convincing my husband that we should get a puppy.
Favorite Hobby ? Cooking and sharing delicious food with friends and family.
Pick a super power: Being really good at bringing people together and talking about difficult issues gracefully… I thank that is absolutely a super power, and I’m in awe of people who can do it!
Favorite Holiday?  Thanksgiving. Again with the pie.v
