Whitney Hsu is a music teacher turned SAHM who spends her days wrangling three kids (5 and under!) and finding Jesus in the quiet moments. She graduated from Salem College in 2008, and has been discerning her calling day by day since then. Her current gig is leading worship at her home church, writing for several publications, being a supportive wife of her dreamer/doer husband, and helping build up the community in central NC that she loves so dearly.

In her ever-dwindling free time, Whitney really enjoys reading, gardening, running, discovering new foodie havens, working on her Chaco tan, taking whirlwind trips with her hubby, and catching glimpses of the NC mountains whenever possible. She's recently delved into songwriting, even though she pretty much stinks at it. Maybe one day she'll write a hit and retire to Ireland. Hey, a girl can dream!
