What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? Abby Hall is a loving person to all, she is outgoing and interacts well with everyone! She is such a hard worker and she knows that her true worth is found in God. Her daily activities include a wide variety of things! She loves to play softball, and has played since she was 4, she has taken on a full time babysitting job for the summer, and every Friday she keeps 8 kids! Her love for others show everyday to everyone she comes in contact with. She has such a big heart and will do anything for anyone! She is very mature and responsible, and you can always count on Abby for anything!!
What do you feel passionate about or could talk about forever? I could talk about how much a Jesus loves us for eternity!! I have a heart for service for the Lord, and I want people to see him through me!! I want everyone to know what Jesus has done for us, and I want them to know that there’s always someone who loves them, even when they feel lost or uncertain!!
What do you want others to know about your relationship with God? I hope others know how valuable a relationship with God can be in your life! I want them to know that no matter how far gone you think you are, God will meet you at any point of your life, and be with you through it all! Having a relationship with him is one of the best decisions I ever made. It’s a choice we make, to wake up and live for him every day. He’s loving, he’s patient, he’s a listening ear, and a father that will always be there for us when we call on him.
What position/s do you play in softball, and what do you love most about it? Second base is my primary position in softball, but I also have experience playing 3rd base, shortstop, catcher, and outfield. The thing I love most about softball is the friendships I’ve made, and the work ethic it has taught me. Softball teaches you to wake up and want to be the best version of yourself everyday! It makes you strive to work harder for yourself, and your teammates!

What is a favorite accomplishment in softball? One of my favorite accomplishments in softball is coming back from wrist surgery, after having to take 2 seasons of softball off due to the surgery. I never thought it was something I could come back from better than I was. I worked very hard in my off season to make myself stronger and to be a better ball player and teammate overall.
What is a favorite memory with your softball team? One of my favorite softball memories was going to Colorado last summer. As a team we were able to be together all week and play, but also be able to enjoy each other throughout the week and live life together. We did some fun things such as white-water-rafting, go karting, shopping, etc. This was one of the best weeks of my softball career!
What do you love most about babysitting? I love getting to pour out my time into the kids, and be there to help them, play with them, and talk to them! They are all so unique and fun to be around! They bring joy to my life, and they make me smile and laugh, just as if I was a kid again!
What activities do you enjoy doing with the children? We love to swim together, we paint, we do crafts, and one of the most popular things is to play Barbies!!
What else would you like to talk about? I have big goals of being someone awesome one day! I want my peers, my family, my friends, and my coworkers to be able to depend on me. I want to show them that there is always someone that will be there for them no matter what!! I love kids, and I love to work and play with them every day! I have a heart for the elderly as well! I love to help those who aren’t as fortunate as me, and those that may need a ride somewhere, or help picking something up, those small things make my heart so full!!
Tell us about your family. Where do you fit in, and where do you stand out? My family immediate family is me, my mom, my dad, and I also have a half sister on my dads side, that is 17 years older than me. I am a mix between both of my parents!! I have many qualities that I take after each parent. I am very OCD like my dad, and I keep things organized. I like to be early/ on time like my dad. On the other hand, my mom is such a giving person. She looks out for me and others, and she has a big soul. She has a soft heart, and she is very compassionate!! I stand out in my family because I am very unique and I’m bold, both of my parents like to fit in, when they walk in a room, but I like to be the one that is always overdressed, or is wearing bright colors!!
