Author and speaker Whitney Capps will be in Vestavia, Ala. on February 13 to share from God’s Word and help provide much needed scholarships to students to attend Samford University. Capps and her husband, Chad, live with their four young sons outside of Atlanta, Ga. and serve at Crosspointe Baptist Church, where her father is the pastor. When Capps is not shuttling their four boys to and from various activities, she is working as part of the Proverbs 31 Ministries team. The ministry, founded by author Lysa TerKeurst in Charlotte, N. C., is designed to lead women into a deeper relationship with God through Bible studies and more. “I love working alongside those women who deeply love God’s Word and want to eradicate biblical poverty. It’s the great passion of our ministry to see women love God with their hearts and their minds,” Capps reflects.
Even though Capps has written a book and released We Over Me: Letters of Hope from Revelation, which is a video curriculum/Bible study from Lifeway, she shares, “I’m still kind of dumbfounded that I can say I’m an author.” Sick of Me is not a typical how-to book. Capps explains that she wrote the book from her “in the trenches experience of wanting to finally overcome the places where I felt stuck. I was sick of me, and I knew I needed more of Jesus.”
What can Samford Legacy League Scholarship Luncheon guests expect to hear from Capps? “Any time I get to speak, you’ll get the unedited version of me. I’m shockingly average. But what Jesus has done in me makes much of the power of the Gospel,” Capps answers adding, “When I get to talk for even a few minutes, I love to share what I’m learning from His Word.” To learn more about the Scholarship Luncheon and make required reservations ($50 per person), visit www.samford.edu/legacyleague.
