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.

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.
