Seven Questions about Books, Life, and Ministry with Anna Wiggins

by | Sep 25, 2017 | Seven Questions about Books, Featured

Let’s start out by telling our readers a little about you. (Current ministry context, family, joys in life, etc.)

I am originally from Augusta Georgia. I came to the Chattanooga area when I came to attend Covenant College where I graduated from. I am recently married to my husband, Glenn.

I think my job is my biggest ministry. I teach math at a middle school located in a very rural poor area of north Georgia. Most of my students are living at or below the poverty line. My mission as a teacher is to share the love of Christ with them through my relationship with them.

What are you reading right now?

I am reading a series of mystery novels by Agatha Christe called Miss Marple. My dad and I read them together when I was growing up.

What are some books you regularly re-read and why?

The Murder Orient Express by Agatha Christe. It is brilliant, and one of my dad’s all-time favorites.

What biographies or autobiographies have you read recently?

            I am not much into biographies so sad to say I don’t think I have read any the whole way through.

Speaking of biographies and such, is there any particular one that has influenced you a great deal in your faith?

See above.

If you were sitting down with a fellow believer and they asked for your top five book recommendations on Christian living, what would they be?

Teach Us to Want, What Were You Expecting?, A Thousand Gifts.

What books have molded how you to serve and lead others in the gospel? 

Those three above really shape how I teach. I teach kids who laugh at the idea of Jesus. I have a lot of grace and kindness that they have never received from anyone else. I am called to love and serve these kids as their teacher and really keeping my attitude and prayer life in check is a must to effective teaching and loving my kids well.

Finally, let’s conclude with this question. What are you learning about life and daily following Jesus? 

Right now I am reading through Romans again, and there is so much about relying on God’s strength, righteousness, and timing. Right now in my job, I can get stretched to limit, so these passages are huge because, at the end of the day, it is all Christ and none of me.
