Best Thing Someone Said to You: A few months after my Dad died I hadn’t given in to the grief and a lady at a women’s retreat asked me why.  I told her I was afraid I would never be able to stop crying.  She looked at me and said “Would God let you do that?”  So I went off in the woods and cried for a couple of hours and felt much better!

Life Motto: Laughter is the best medicine!

One of the Things I Find Most Fascinating:  the Northern Lights

One of My Greatest Experiences with God: Too many to list but usually involve Him speaking to me through nature.

Most People Don’t Know This About Me: I’m really skinny!  But seriously, I’m a pretty open book and I tell it like it is so people know most things about me.
