Christian Sommer Burnett- Thornton lives in Tupelo, MS & attends the North Hillcrest Church of Christ in Aberdeen, MS where her father is the minister. Sommer is a humorous, tell-it-like-it-is speaker that is sure to enlighten the audience & brighten any room she enters with her bubbly personality & contagious smile. While attending Freed Hardeman University Sommer received the Personal Evangelism Award from the bible department faculty for her constant efforts at saving the lost & keeping the saved saved. Sommer wed her husband, Alexander Thornton (a graduate of Freed Hardeman who holds a bachelors in Bible from the university)  in July of 2014 and together they have become traveling missionaries across the south working together to bring others to Christ through door knocking & social media outreach. They are a modern day Priscilla & Aquila couple.  They have gone as far as Lubbock, TX & traveled widely throughout MS, AL, TN, AR and everywhere in between.  Sommer is a great speaker that is very knowledgable in the scriptures & life and can speak on any topic with various moods of speaking. She can bring you to tears through laughter or by her love of the gospel & the conviction you’ll hear in her voice. A dedicated servant of The Lord now for many years she is willing to travel any distance to speak in order to edify the sisterhood of the Lord’s church.

College church of Christ
Searcy, Arkansas
I graduated from Harding College with a degree in Bible (class of 1966) and have been married 43 years…my husband preached during the early years of our marriage, then began teaching school.  We’ve raised two sons who are faithful Christians and have six grandchildren.  Through the years I have taught pre-teen and teenage girls and ladies’ classes and have helped plan and spoken at workshops.  I have learned that life doesn’t always turn out as you plan when you are twenty, but God is there through the twists and turns we don’t expect, that He gave us the church and each other to help us on our journey to Heaven, and that Christian sisters can be a wonderful support network when Satan attacks us or our loved ones.
