ANDY STANLEY ON BECOMING A PASTOR

In an interview with Outreach Magazine, Andy pointed out that the Bible was a priority in his household during his childhood as the four members of his family (Charles, his mother Anna, and his sister Becky) always prayed together. He added:

“We would literally get on our knees as a family, every time we thought about moving, anything. That marked me.”

As years went by, Andy saw up close what it was like to be a preacher through Charles’ experience – the good and the bad. Even though he was interested in the church, he never felt called to ministry.

Andy said that it was probably because he was afraid, but he eventually volunteered to ministry, and that’s how his successful path began.

BECOMING A FOSTER FAMILY

Everything started when her youngest kid, Allie, entered ninth grade, and they became the foster family of three girls. Although it was challenging, every member of the family made some space in their schedules to help the girls.

The boys, Andrew and Garrett, would drive them to school as well as help with some errands. They also provided the much-needed laughter for the lives of the girls who never had brothers.

Allie, on the other hand, served as a role model and helped with child care. According to Sandra, the girls used to “actually listed” to Allie even though she and Sandra told them the same things.

In January 2018, Sandra and Andy Stanley were fostering another girl! Apart from that, she is the mother-in-law of Garrett’s wife, Danielle, and Allie’s husband, Clay Cooney.
