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.
