    What made you want to apply at Concordia Publishing House?

    As a sophomore, my academic adviser sent out the CPH internship information in an email, and even though it said you had to be a junior to apply, I read the information anyway and fell in love. I love literature and I love Jesus, so the combination really works for me!

    What is your favorite Bible Verse?

    Isaiah 54:10. “For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”

    What is one fun fact about yourself?

    This fact always gets me laughed at, but I am actually deathly afraid of butterflies! I have always hated them since I was a little kid, and even to this day I still can’t stand being anywhere near them. I do think they are beautiful, just far away from me!

    If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

    If I could go anywhere in the world it would be to Iceland. I don’t know anyone who has ever been there before, but everything about the country intrigues me. I love the glaciers, hot springs, unique architecture, and culture of the people there.

    Isaiah 40:30–31. “Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

    My confirmation verse, Proverbs 3:5–6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

    Department at CPH: Vacation Bible School

    What made you apply at Concordia Publishing House?

    I wanted to apply at CPH after I heard about a friend of mine interning here last summer. I was keeping my eyes open for internship opportunities, but once I found out that I could intern at CPH, I was sold! I knew it would have a great Lutheran atmosphere and a lot of opportunities.

    What is your favorite Bible verse?

    My favorite Bible verse is my confirmation verse, Isaiah 40:31. “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

    Hometown: Munising, Michigan

    Department at CPH: Marketing

    I wanted to apply at CPH because the internship program and the mission of the company looked to fit my goals, my values, and what I could see myself doing in the future.

    What is your favorite Bible verse?

    My favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:37.  “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” In order to be more than a conqueror, one would have to intensely and fiercely gain victory over an opponent! It is saying that Jesus has more than defeated the enemy and now nothing can separate us. This verse reminds me that through Jesus’ work on the cross I am OVERWHELMINGLY victorious by the glory of our God!

    What is one fun fact about you?

    Fun fact about me! I’m a third-generation Yooper! This means that I was born (and reside) in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, as were both my parents and all of my grandparents! We are known for our flannel, saying “you betcha”, and our small communities!

    If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

    Everywhere! It’s hard to choose! Top three are probably Peru, Europe, and Australia. I would love to go to Machu Picchu, see the White Cliffs of Dover, and tour the Sydney Opera House!

    What is your favorite Bible verse?

    Hebrews 12: 1–2. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
