BIO: Anne Marie is the parish youth minister at St. Jane Frances de Chantal in Bethesda, Maryland. She, along with her comedic partner Justin, form Over the Top Ministries. Anne Marie has been active for years with the summer Encounter the Gospel of Life program as well. Cribbs blogs regularly here.
QUOTE TO NOTE: Anne Marie described that her job description includes being sparkly and luminous. “I wear glitter daily,” she suggested. “I think the sparkly and luminous is part of just the joy that comes with youth ministry. I think that it is a definite job requirement… that there is a love and passion for (our ministry) and it comes out in the joy that we have for the work.
OBSCURE FACTOID: Anne Marie and Justin from Over the Top gave me my longest and hardest laugh (with tears) at the NCCYM in Denver. Read the blog.
BEHIND THE SCENES: My Wednesday mornings with last minute editing continue to be a mess. Sigh, again! Really pleased with the sound quality on this one (except for a little mic movement under a story of Anne Marie’s) despite being back to taping off the speaker phone.
BLOG REFLECTION: can be read here for March 21st.
