Born and raised in Roanoke, Va, Anne is the eldest of three children. She graduated from St. Mary’s Junior College in Raleigh, NC in 1978 and completed her Liberal Arts Degree at Meredith College in 1980.
Soon after graduating, Anne became employed as a flight attendant with Piedmont Airlines and was based in Norfolk, Va. In 1989, Anne moved to Charlotte, NC to become a Flight Attendant Supervisor with the newly merged company, USAir. After three years as a Supervisor, she was hired as an Administrative Supervisor and began handling worker’s comp claims, medical leaves and maternity leaves for the four thousand flight attendants based in Charlotte.
It was during those first years in Charlotte that Anne came to know Jesus as Lord and Savior. She also met and married her husband Rob. It was after the birth of their second child that she became a full time stay-at-home mom to her two children, daughter Hallie, and son, Rob Jr.
In August 2000, at age forty-two, Anne had a transforming encounter with God through the Holy Spirit. Within weeks of that encounter, she was leading her first prayer meeting at her church. For the next three years, Anne was in charge of organizing those weekly prayer meetings.
Then, in the Fall of 2003, Anne felt the Lord was calling her to open her home for future prayer meetings. In January 2004, she began hosting prayer meetings in her home, and anyone who wanted to deepen their relationship with the Lord was free to come.
It was prophesied over Anne in 2003 that she would one day write a book. She laughed at the thought but took the word to be from the Lord. Her first book, “The Mustard Seed Chronicles,” is a memoir that recounts some of the stories and lessons learned during the prayer meetings she was called to be part of over the last ten years. Today, many of the Glory Girls continue to meet and they intercede, minister and teach as the Lord positions them around their neighborhoods and the city.
