Meet your CHM staff: Royale Brown and Valerie Blake
Royale Brown and Valerie Blake recently joined CHM’s Needs Processing department where they enter medical bills into the ministry’s database.
How do friends describe you? Compassionate, loving, kind-hearted, willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, stylish and a true friend.
How did you become a Christian? I was born and raised in a Christian home. What a blessing it has been to have two saved, Spirit-filled parents! They gave me the best thing they could: the knowledge of Jesus. I’m grateful for the way they modeled the Christian life for me.
What does true leadership mean to you? Leading with integrity. Even if you have to make a decision that isn’t popular, the decision should be based upon whether it will be pleasing to God.
What’s the strangest job you’ve had? While not “strange,” I’d say the most unique job I had was being an Uber driver.
What music is playing in your car right now? Kirk Franklin’s praise station on Sirius XM.
What are your family activities outside of work? My husband, Craig, and I spend most of our time with our adult children and six grandchildren. All of our grandkids are involved in sports—even the three-year-old—so we enjoy watching them.
When did you become a Christian? As a teenager I underwent some emotional struggles. I called out to God and asked Him to forgive my sins and save my soul. As time went on I frequently wondered if my salvation had been real because I asked Christ into my heart at home, not at church. Shortly after Craig and I married, I went to the altar to pray and got the reassurance I was looking for.
What’s one thing you’d like CHM members to know? We pray for you daily. I personally pray for healing and God’s peace for each member as I enter your medical bills into our database.
What is your personal philosophy? Always be honest; be of good character and integrity. I pray others will know I’m a Christian by the way I live life and how I treat others.
Name one thing you can’t resist. Cake!
