Pastor Melanie Unger

MelanieUngerFAMILY
I am married to John, my best friend and life partner for nearly 20 years.  We have two fantastic sons – Jordan and Nathan.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
I love biking with my family from our home in Glenelm to The Forks and back, with a break for gelati or lattés.  I also love reading good books, seeing movies, playing piano, boating on Manitoba lakes, and taking summer road trips.

 

FAVOURITE AUTHORS
Anne Lamott, Philip Yancey, N.T. Wright, C.S. Lewis, Carol Shields, Madeleine L’Engle, Khaled Hosseini, John Steinbeck…the list could go on and on…oh, and blogger Ryan Dueck.

FAVOURITE MUSIC
I’m currently hooked on the Canadian indie/folk music on CBC Radio Two, but I enjoy most styles of music.

WHAT I’D LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OR TRY
I’d like to become better at waterskiing.  I currently hang on for dear life behind my dad’s boat, and only ski when the lake conditions are perfect.  I’d like to let go of my fear and start zipping across the wake!

FAVOURITE TV SHOWS
Madam Secretary, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, and The Amazing Race Canada.

IF I COULD BE DOING ANYTHING RIGHT NOW
I’d ditch winter and head to Florida with my family or take a summer road trip to Canada’s east coast.

MORE ABOUT ME
In a world where we are bombarded with stories of violence and despair, I believe it is extremely important for Christ-followers to speak and live a different story of hope, peace, and love.  I am continually inspired by people who find new and creative ways to do that and I’m trying to be one of those people.
