fun facts:

What do you do in your free time?

  • I enjoy taking adventures with my family, traveling, singing loudly to music, reading and learning, exploring and creating art, engaging in deep conversations, listening to stories, and laughing, lots and lots of laughing.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

  • Isaiah 58: 6 -12 "Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and he will say 'Here I am.' If you take away the yoke from your midst the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.

If you could meet anyone in history who would it be?

  • My paternal grandfather.  He died when my dad was fourteen and I wonder how his life and death affected my story.
