Meet The WEW Crew


Amy Penner

As a young child I was raised Catholic and continued to attend church through adulthood, although I had no relationship with Christ.  I met my husband in Phoenix and we have been married five years.  In 2012, with a baby on the way, we moved to Raleigh to be closer to family.  Since that time, we have been blessed with two boys, ages 6 and 4.
Prior to WEW, I was unaware that being a Christian meant practicing spiritual disciplines or even that knowing and trusting Christ meant eternal life through forgiveness of sins. I was what the world would call a “good person.”  I prayed, went to church and did all the things Christians did. Yet, I don’t know if I really understood what it meant that Jesus died for my sins.

It was only after coming to the Creek and partnering with several ladies in my small group that I had the opportunity to be disciple and learn about my faith more deeply. I first opened the Bible in 2014 and fought my busy “new mom” life for time in the Word.  It wasn’t until I learned the disciplines in WEW, that I studied my bible, prayed intentionally, learned about worship, served and shared the gospel with others.
Being accountable has helped me spend time in the word—time I thought didn’t exist. After a year of WEW, my to-do list shortened and commitment to the disciplines grew.  Reading the bible daily became a priority.  Moreover, it was something I wanted to do rather than something I had to do.

My relationship with Christ is fairly new and I am honored to be a WEW leader. I look forward to leading other women in their relationship with the Lord. Life is filled with good days and difficult days but I hope I can encourage and challenge you in both. Having been (and continue to be) in the throes of work, marriage, and parenting, I understand how demanding life can be.
