What makes you smile?
God calls each of us ‘to serve’ rather than ‘to be served’. He blesses each of us with an abundance of gifts with the hope that we will be good stewards of those gifts by sharing them with the world around us and using them to serve one another without reservations or expectations. When I see people, including myself, being good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us by God, THAT makes me smile.
Describe a date night with your husband...
With busy schedules, we’ve learned to be creative with our ‘date nights’. A typical date for us could be volunteering together at an event, going to adoration, getting together with family and friends, working on a home project together or even just a quiet night at home alone watching a movie with our puppies. It sounds cliché, but it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, as long as we make the time to do it together.
How do you relax?
I’m relaxed when I’m at peace. I’m at peace when I draw near to God and make our relationship a priority. To relax, I attend daily Mass. When that’s not possible, I find quiet time to spend with Him in prayer each day. During prayer, I focus on HIS will and what HE needs from me, and I embrace and trust HIS plan. Our relationship provides me with the constant peace and relaxation I need.
Describe your personal style...
Like most women, I wear many hats. As a result, my personal style adapts to the hat I’m wearing at that moment. Although I prefer a classic, classy style for professional settings, a casual, minimal style for everyday meetings and a comfortable, sporty style for around the house or running errands, I’ve learned to adapt my style to my surroundings, when needed, and to be comfortable in those different environments, while staying true to myself.
