Volunteer Spotlight: Whitney White

"Whitney is the type of person you meet and immediately know that she cares deeply about you. In everything she does, she works to meet the needs of others and has been such an asset to CFLM. As one of our recurring teachers at workshops and conferences, we can always trust that Whitney will do everything in her power to equip our families with the information and resources they need while ensuring they are directed towards the truth of Scripture. We are so grateful to have her in our family!"
- Mary Lee Herron, Executive Director

Occupation: Counselor

Volunteer Position: Education Committee

How did you first get involved with CFLM:  A coworker of mine said "you have to meet the Millers" when I moved to Athens. She drove from Atlanta one day to connect me to Lisa, and then later I was asked to co-lead a breakout session for the conference.

What is your favorite memory from volunteering: The moments where it is apparent while teaching a conference breakout or a Choosing to Care workshop that the participants are growing in insight and compassion. Seeing light bulbs go off for adoptive and foster parents is one of my favorite things.

What has surprised you most about working with CFLM: How similar the heart and mission is to the ministry I work for, Lifeline Children's Services. After moving to Athens, it has been incredible to connect with like-minded believers here.

What makes volunteering with CFLM meaningful for you: I love having opportunities to play a role in what God is doing to equip His people to care for His children!

What is one of your hidden talents: I grew up on a cattle ranch and so my cattle knowledge is pretty extensive (although my cattle judging skills have been highly underutilized as a counselor for the past several multiple years).

How did people describe you in your high school yearbook: "Friendliest"

If you could travel anywhere tomorrow, where would you go: My husband and I are passionate about serving internationally, so my favorite places to go are the ones that are most "off the grid." I would probably go with my hubby to some village in the middle of nowhere Southeast Asia or West Africa. It would be awesome!!!
