|Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?||
I have three adult children and two grandsons, plus two step grandsons, My family is very close, we make the effort to be with each other as much as possible even though we are in different countries/locations.
I would not rule out relocating, but I want to be able to grow and deepen my relationship with my grandchildren, so being able to be accessible to them is very important to me.
|How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?||
I was 13 years old when I became a Christian. My walk with God has been like going up and down a mountain for sometime. However, in the last 10 years I have been totally sold out to my Savior. He is the most important person in my life and I do not want to waste a minute being disobedient to Him. I want to serve Him with every fiber of my being as long as He gives me breath.
|How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?||
I did not begin to appreciate the doctrine of Grace until about 10 years ago. I grow up in churches that were very legalistic and condemning. The Gospel of Grace is liberating and light and glorious. I feel bathed in God’s love knowing how graceful He has been to me. I try to extend this grace to others with whom I interact.

Yes. It’s usually first thing in the mornings when I awaken. I am currently doing the devotions with Moody Bible Institute. This month it is all about the life of Moses.

David! A man after God’s own heart. His life reminds me that there is nothing I have done that God will not forgive me, cleanse me and restore me. I love the Psalms written by David and his honesty and openness in displaying his raw pain, doubt, joy, anger, wonder and amazement . My favorite Psalm is Psalm 139.
|Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?||
I am content being single. I have the ‘cake’ because I have Christ in my life and my family, church and friends. A husband would be the ‘icing’ on this cake.

I am so grateful for the love of Jesus, I want to serve Him in everyway and be obedient to Him. I trust Him with every aspect of my life.
I am easy going, honest and forgiving of others. I am humble, easy to please. I enjoy helping others. I would rather be serving food at an event than sitting there twiddling my thumbs.
I enjoy Gospel music and music from the 60’s-80’s.
I believe that I should do everything to take good care of the body I have been given, so I exercise and try to eat right. This means resisting the desires of my sweet tooth. I love everything chocolate. I am adventurous with food..will try something new at least once.
I love to hear people’s story, especially those with a totally different background from myself. I am always amazed at the journey many people have endured, especially Believers.
I like to debate and discuss various things…I steer away from politics most of the time.
