Signature dish (you cook): Main dish: Eggs-a-la-Goldenrod or Hamburger Green Bean Casserole (a family fave!). Dessert: french apple pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, rhumbleberry pie, (any pie, really!) and almond poppy seed cake
Good habit: Making sure I tell people that I love them. I am purposeful with this.
Bad habit: Yuck! I have many. One I am working on now is not saying please and thank you as often as I should. Oh, and driving a bit too fast. Oh, and …
Coffee habit: Decaf with cream
Personal motto/Life verse: Live a life of love (Eph. 5:2)
I’m scared to try: Anything I think I can’t do right! HAHA. God and I are working on this.
Cat/dog/other: Dog, all the way! Cats are sassier than me and I don’t like that, plus they make me itch.
Etiquette Pet Peeve: When someone arrives at your house for dinner and then asks if they can take a shower (The deacons will get that one.) But really, I guess it bugs me if people get up and leave the table while others are still eating. I love life around the table and I just want everyone to stay and be a part of that life.
I wish I could tell my younger self: Don’t believe everything you think, especially about yourself.
I never leave home without: My bag of tricks, A.K.A. my purse!
Your spouse/best friend would describe you as: A cheerful, sensitive, loving, silly, creative, fun, sassy, careful and a bit on the loud side homebody with an adventurous streak that is coming out more and more.
The last book I read/re-read: Rereading Let Prayer Change Your Life, by Becky Tirabassi and reading for the first time, A Better Way to Think, by H. Norman Wright and Before Green Gables, by Budge Wilson. (Everyone reads multiple books at once, right?)
Favorite part of your job/ministry: My ministry is healing discipleship: walking with women on the healing process. I love this because we get to watch each other grow and change and have a part in that. It brings much joy. And sometimes I get to participate in the worship ministry, which is beautiful, too! Drawing people’s hearts toward God and seeing them engage with our Creator is a blessing to behold! My job is creating and re-creating vintage items (jewelry to furniture) to sell. I love letting my creative side out to play, and it makes my heart happy.
