1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
You must learn to forgive when you haven’t received an apology. Since hearing that advice I’ve always tried to apply forgiveness to everyday life and situations. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Mark 11:25

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Raising our five children, my husband and l are excited to see our hard work and dedication develop in our family. We are raising them as respectful, independent and kind beings. Sometimes l wish time would slow down, but excited to live life with them each day.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
I believe awareness is extremely valuable. As parents we strive to teach our children the value of being aware of not only your surroundings and behaviors, but to be sensitive towards others. Teaching awareness creates compassion.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
I live my life with no regrets. I truly believe all life’s struggles with ups and downs are teaching and joyous moments that create growth. I’m happy and content being exactly the age I am today!

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
A fun date night for my husband and I is something that we do often. First it usually involves takeout so I don’t have to cook for our family of seven. Once the kiddos are in bed, he and l sit on our screened in porch and enjoy the fire pit and music. It’s simple and relaxing both and we look forward to these quiet moments together.
