My name is Kirsten Bynum, and I’m from right here in good ole College Station, Texas! In what little free time I have, I enjoy photography, taking pictures of all of God’s beautiful creations, whether that’s people or nature. My favorite food would probably have to be jalapeño chips. The most notable thing about me is my love for crocs, so if you come across someone in a sweatshirt and crocs- that’s probably me.
Why did you join the Pursuit Ministries?
I joined the Pursuit Ministries because when I was in youth group, the lovely Pursuit Ministry girls mentored me throughout my highschool experience- and through the hardest times in my life. So I joined in order to hopefully be a similar light for the Lord in other girls’ lives.
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 21:13, which says, “Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered.” I love this verse because it reminds me of our call to love and serve others. Everyone needs love and support at some point in their life, including us. So giving that love to others is very important to me because you mever know how God is going to use that in your, or their life.
Words of encouragement for High School/Middle School Girls:
The thing I struggled with most at that age was opening up. Never be afraid to be vulnerable with someone who loves you and wishes to further their relationship with you, and help you with your relationship with God.
