As we did last year, we are posting information on the Main Speakers & Worship Leader at our Awaken Women’s Retreat in October. If you’d like more information, please click on the Awaken 2015 tab. All the details are located there! We’d love to have you if you haven’t signed up, have been every year or have never been! Since our main speakers and worship leader can’t necessarily give you a glimpse into all they are going to share, we thought we’d have some fun with them. We picked some random “get-to-know-you” questions, along with a trivia question and below we’ve listed our questions & their responses. Enjoy!!
This week we are starting with our A-MAZ-ING Worship Leader…Amy Lucero.
AW: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.
AL: I have been married to the love of my life, Jimmy Lucero, for 12 years. We have 2 daughters, Annelise, 7 and Avery Rae, 5. I am currently going back to school full-time to become a middle school teacher so this semester has been full of change. Aside from school, I help my husband with Fusion youth and Emerge (college) and I LOVE doing that. Meeting and ministering to different ages of young women is something I really enjoy doing! If we’re not at church, we are at home playing with our dog Gizzymo or spending time with family! 🙂
AW: What is your favorite scripture?
AL: In this season of my life, I am holding on to
Isaiah 43:18-19, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”
This is something I am trusting that God is doing in my life! 🙂
AW: When you get to heaven, aside from Jesus, who is the one person in the Bible you want to talk to first? And what question would you ask them?
AL: I would love to meet the lady with the issue of blood. She was an outcast and put away for her illness. I imagine she must have lived a life full of loneliness and despair. Her courage to go to the city, and then touch Jesus took a lot of faith! And then He turns to her and calls her Daughter!!! I would love to hear this story from her perspective! 🙂 I would also ask her, her name!
AW: If you could work in any occupation in the world, what would you do?
AL: I really enjoy being in ministry. Doing what you know in your heart God has called you to do is more than enough! I also can’t wait to teach. I love being around teenagers, especially middle school, so I’m very excited about that! 🙂
AW: Who is your favorite artist/band?
AL: Ooo…I have a lot. I love Dara Maclean, Bethel Worship, Social Club (rap) and LOVE Spanish worship (It’s the heavenly language) 😉
AW: What is your favorite movie?
AL: Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Roman Holiday (Love me some Audrey) smile emoticon
AW: What have you yet to accomplish?
AL: Well I’m working on my bachelor’s degree, but I also would like to get my master’s degree 🙂
AW: What have you always wanted to do but have been afraid to try?
AL: I still would like a tattoo, but I can’t seem to bring myself to do it!
AW: If you could go on vacation to any destination in the world and money was no object, where would you go?
AL: I would love to go to Hawaii. Clear blue water and beautiful beaches…ahhhh. 🙂
AW: Without looking (we trust you!), can you name all of the themes we’ve had for each of the past years of Awaken? (Hint: we’re on #7)
AL: Not in any order…
love life? I can’t remember what comes after love…I just remember it was a cute sign!
HEHEHE…I can remember the decor…does that count??? 😉
AW: Well, she got 5 out of the 7 themes…not too shabby!!! We’ll see how the rest of the main speakers do on their trivia question!!
We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Amy a little better! 🙂
