Annie Downs :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

It’s day ten of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women. You can find a list of all the interviews in this post.

It’s so exciting to introduce you to Annie Downs! Annie says:

Go after your dreams. Don’t wait for permission or a partner or more money. Take little steps towards what you want to do with your life. When you are running after freedom and courage and fun, get to running and look around at the folks beside you – they are doing the same.

What caught my eye the first time I found Annie online is that she’s from Atlanta (so I am!), she went to the University of Georgia and is a huge Georgia Bulldogs fan (I did too, and so am I!), and she has a degree in early childhood education (me too!). A big difference between us (now that I’ve read her interview) is that she’s an off-the-charts extrovert, and I’m an off-the-charts introvert!

Annie is a fabulous a writer, blogger, speaker, and person!! who is passionate about investing in the next generation!

Jenni Ellis :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

It’s day ten of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women. You can find a list of all the interviews in this post.

I’m so happy to introduce you to Jenni Ellis! Jenni says:

I want my son to know that God comes first in my life. While I can tell him that, I have to model that for him because I know he will pay much more attention to what I do than what I say.

When I “met” Jenni I didn’t know that she grew up and lives in Atlanta. I grew up in Atlanta, too! I moved to North Carolina six years ago, but miss Georgia terribly. Then I found out that Jenni is an administrator at a private school across the street from the elementary school where I taught six years ago! What a small world!

I love Jenni’s story and words here because she offers so much encouragement to all single women and most especially single moms. So get comfortable, read her interview, and soak in her words of wisdom.

Today we’re talking with Sierra Burton! Sierra says:

I wish I could say no, I never do or have gotten mad at God. I use to a lot more than I do now. But that is because I didn’t understand God’s plan for me. But now when discontentment and heartache creeps in I push it out by reminding myself that my Father in Heaven knows me, He knows what He needs me for, and He will bless me as I stay strong and have faith in Him and His timing for me.

Sierra is 25 years old and lives in Olympia, Washington. She is an Event Coordinator for the Chamber of Commerce. She also blog at “Enjoy to the End” and  “Sisters, What!”, which is a blog she writes with her sisters. Let’s meet Sierra!

Leigh Kramer :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

It’s day ten of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women. You can find a list of all the interviews in this post.

I’m so happy to introduce you to Leigh Kramer! Leigh says:

I’m not going to wait for someone or something to validate my life. I believe if God could best accomplish his will for me through a spouse, I’d have a husband already. Since I don’t, I’m making the most of whatever opportunities come my way.

I was listening to The Art of Simple podcast, and Tsh Oxenreider was interviewing Leigh Kramer. I thought Leigh would be perfect for this interview series, so I reached out to her. Leigh is 34 years old. She is an author and creator of The Enneagram Coach. The Enneagram Coach helps people figure out their Enneagram type and apply its truths to their life. Let’s read more about Leigh!

Janaye Sandberg :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

It’s day ten of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women. You can find a list of all the interviews in this post.

Today I’m happy to introduce you to Janaye Sandberg! Janaye says:

 My comfort then, if I’m ever in a pile on the floor, is Jesus. He knows. He’s been there, He’s dealt with the same things. I know it could sound cliché but He has been more of a comfort to me than a roomful of people ever could be. When the loneliness hurts I often pray something of the following, “Lord, please help, please hold my heart. Help me to worship well.”

Janaye is 27 and lives in Apex, NC. She works as a nurse in the ICU burn unit. Janaye also serves as a youth group leader at her church.
