Christy Edwards was born early spring in a small town of North Carolina as the first born child to Bruce and Bonnie Miller. How appropriate that God would send this little fire-starter into the world when everything is in season to bloom and life is filling every living thing. To be around Christy this becomes very evident. She has a contagious personality, full of life, zeal, and enthusiasm. A person in full bloom. It’s so hard to imagine that her early years were filled with pain, instability with family, disappointment, and abuse.
With the odds stacked against her, Christy fell in love with Jesus Christ early in her 20s, and credits this to where she is today and how far she was able to come. “Abuse, infertility, health problems, divorce … none of these defined me; rather, they led me to the well, my well of life.” Christy dedicated herself to study, and love of Christ and the Bible in 2002. Not looking back, this led her on a journey that would result in singing, teaching, and motivating thousands for the sake of her Savior. Today she is in full-time ministry as the Director of Children’s Ministry at The Cove Church in Statesville, NC. Christy holds family as the highest value; she says, “I am married to the most amazing husband, Brent; and my kids, I have an awesome step son, Parker, and a precious baby girl, Hope. I’m blessed.”
Christy is founder of At the Well. The excitement that bleeds into all she does holds no exception here. Inspiring women and preparing them for this wonderful journey is her hearts desire as she continues motivating, discipling, and inviting others to come along.

Cheryl Fellores is a wife, mom, and friend. She was born and raised in the Midwest. At and early age, Cheryl accepted Christ as her Savior but didn’t know how to feed that faith. God never gave up on her as He walked her through life placing numerous people to speak His truth into her life.
After marrying her husband Joey and moving to North Carolina, God made Himself abundantly clear to her. That’s when she surrendered to the call He had all along for her life. She’s an ordinary woman serving an extraordinary God. Cheryl is a writer and a speaker passionate about helping others find Jesus. But more than that, she’s an encourager down to her core.
Throughout her life, she continues to learn God’s truth that He causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them (Romans 8:28).
