Leading the crew that day was Ann Wright, dressed in a pink plastic hard hat and doting on her adorable dog Mitzi between visitors. Ann told me about her passion for prayer and about some upcoming events at the church. She also prayed for me. I was just starting out with the Sun, which was known then as Snellville Local News. I asked for prayer about that. She prayed kind, insightful words, but one phrase stuck with me: "If you can't make it a blessing, don't make it news."
That was difficult then, when the site contained more hard news, but now as a community site, I want the Snellville Sun to live up to Ann's prayer. I hope we can honor all residents of Snellville, no matter their background or beliefs, and find what is fascinating about each one. That's what the Somebodies feature is all about, so it seems fitting to introduce you to Ann.
You can submit prayer requests to the team at Snellville United Methodist through their prayer page.
Snellville Somebodies is a regular feature designed to introduce you to every person in Snellville, because around here, everybody's somebody.
