About Michal Conger

I’m a reporter and digital editor, a cooking and whole foods fanatic, a runner, a music lover, an Anthropologie devotee. I'm an avid reader of G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R.

And above all, I am committed to bearing the testimony of the Lord Jesus, giving an answer for the hope that is in me.
