I grew up in East Texas in the Rose Capitol of the World, Tyler. Strangely enough, my name, Myrandi, is actually the name of a rose, the Mirandy rose. After high school, I moved to the big city to attend Dallas Baptist University on an Art Scholarship. I graduated with a bachelor's degree (not in Art, by the way, but in Christian Education), married the love of my life, and taught kindergarten while completing my Master's degree from DBU. Victor and I have two beautiful daughters, Brynlee (24) and Maycee (21), who both graduated from CCA, love Jesus, and seek to serve Him daily in their jobs and lives. My dear husband went to live with the Lord in November 2021 after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. The journey God has me on today was definitely not what I was expecting, but there is joy and blessing in trusting His plan and walking in faith.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? an artist and a teacher
Why do you choose to work at CCA? I felt called to Christian Education. After interviewing for an open position, I was immediately drawn to the philosophy/mission and like-minded community.
What is one fun fact about you? I have never had a cup of coffee. I took one sip and realized very quickly that I didn't like the taste, and the smell gives me a headache.
What is your favorite book of all time? Besides the Bible? When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin.
The story is powerful, speaks to my soul, and reminds me that God can redeem any situation, circumstance, or person.
What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? A reminder of my husband, the smile and hug from a CCA student (or a piece of chocolate!)
What do you like to do for fun? Hanging out with my daughters; playing games with friends; doing puzzles; playing pickleball; reading; watercolor painting
