Mandy has been serving in the ministry of Set Apart Girl® in various roles since January of 2011 and has become our invaluable Administrative Director. We affectionately call her "our everything girl” because no matter what she takes on, she gets it done and with joy and excellence. Her motivation for all she tackles, both large and small, comes from a desire to see the life-altering truth and beauty of the Gospel to take deeper root in the lives that Set Apart Girl® reaches.
Before moving to Colorado in 2010 to be discipled through Ellerslie Training, Mandy was an avid reader of Eric and Leslie Ludy’s books, and eagerly consumed all things Set Apart Girl®. Now, Mandy shares in strategizing new and creative ways to reach and provide resources for women desiring to return to Christ-centered femininity. Because the messages shared by Set Apart Girl® had such an impact in her own life and walk with Christ, she has a big heart for the women that our ministry reaches!
One of Mandy's favorite quotes comes from Elisabeth Elliot:“Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.” This articulates the pure and faith-filled life of surrender that she desires and seeks to live out as a woman of God.
Mandy enjoys cultivating beauty in her surroundings, is a lover of family-life and the Pennsylvania countryside where she was raised, and sometimes dreams of establishing a “winter-bird office” for Set Apart Girl® - this girl loves the sand, sun, water, and waves!
One of her recent favorite Scriptures is Romans 12:11-12, “[Be]. . . fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.”
