I was recently able to interview Amanda Taylor (wife of Chris Taylor who sings bass for the Taylors)
The Taylors are one of my favorite groups and this was truly an honor! First let me tell you a little bit about this group.
"The Taylors are a brother-sister quartet from the heart of North Carolina. Jonathan, Suzanne, Christopher, and Leslie are dedicated to stirring up the faith of the Christian community, as well as reaching others with the good news of Jesus Christ through Gospel music. The Taylors are currently performing around 200 dates a year across the United States, including several mission-oriented trips abroad. Since their formation in 2006, God has allowed them to see over 5,000 decisions for Christ. The Taylor siblings grew up as members of Fellowship Baptist Church, a small country church, where their father has been a Southern Baptist minister for over 27 years and their mother the minister of music. With their mother's guidance, it was around the church piano that The Taylors learned their four-part family harmony. Growing up in a Christian home has reinforced their faith and values and has created in each of them a strong desire to proclaim their salvation through the ministry of music. God is at the center of The Taylors' ministry and at the center of their hearts. To Him be all the glory!"
1. When did you get saved?
I made a profession of faith when I was eight years old, but it was not until I was twelve that I truly understood what it meant to have a personal relationship with Christ through prayer and daily devotional quiet times.
2. How did you and Chris meet?
My husband and I first met six years ago when The Taylors came to my church one Sunday morning in March. At the time, Chris and I were both fairly shy individuals, but luckily a friend of mine introduced us to each other.
3. When did you two get married?
Chris and I said our vows to each other on May 19, 2012.
4. What is something most people don't know about you?
I love to dance, especially with my husband. One of our favorite songs when we were courting was "Why Don't We Just Dance" by Josh Turner.
5. What is your favorite food?
Being raised on the coast, I love most any type of saltwater seafood.
6. Do you have hobbies? If so what are they?
When I have time, I love going fishing, hiking, and doing most anything outdoors and near the beach.
7. Where do you call home?
I currently call Lillington, NC home, but I am originally from Newport, NC.
8. Share one of your favorite memories.
One of my favorite memories growing up was riding bikes to the beach after school with my older brother and then going for ice cream after. Being five years apart in age, I always felt cool when I got to tag along with my older brother.
9. What is your favorite Bible verse?
I do not really have a favorite Bible verse, but my favorite chapter is Psalms 103.
10. What is your favorite place to shop?
Ross, because I can get a dress for under $15 dollars!
