Q&A

When I first became a Christian. When I married my husband Jon, and when I had my children and they survived their early birth.

Jesus. My husband Jon
What do you most value in your friends?
Their friendship. Communication. Same shared values.
Which talent would you most like to have?
To be able to sing again. (Had damage to a vocal cord after a surgery). To best communicate with others, to be a positive influence on others.
To perfect my craft abilities.
What is your current state of mind?
Going through different seasons in my life, partially because of growing older. Sometimes I feel like a
broken person, which I am, this is when I rely more heavily on my relationship with God.
What is your most treasured possession?
My relationship with God, and the promises in the Bible. People aren’t a possession, but if they were, my family.
How do you most like spending your time?
Spending time with my husband, were together all of the time.
Playing ‘Words with Friends’ on facebook. Doing crafts, papercrafts, jewelry making. Watching a good
movie. Listening to great music. Love my water exercise classes that I go to, often 3 times a week.
Hanging out with family
I love nature, being in nature and enjoying it immensely. Planning on going to the Rocky Mountains this
fall. Love yard sales, even though I haven’t been to any for awhile.
What do you most dislike?
The sadness in the world. That there are killings everyday.
In your own words, what would you say to inspire or encourage someone facing breast cancer right
now?
It’s okay whatever you decide to do, but encourage you to fight the cancer. To put your life completely
in the hands of God, a safe place to be, the safest.
