Where is your hometown?
If you could ask God one question, what would it be?
I ask God questions all the time about how to handle challenges or how to release things to Him that I am tempted to control. But I have been given a gift by the trials I have faced in my life that I don’t really have a desire to question God any longer as I once did on why he allows certain things or what he has in store. I have moments when my heart says, “Why?” but the truth is I know God’s ways are not my ways and His plans are abundantly beyond all can ask or imagine. That gives my heart rest.
Which television show are you addicted to watching?
At one time in my life, I watched a bit too much TV. But now there is only one show I try to see: Parenthood. It is such a real and transparent picture of the struggles we face as families and human beings. It's comforting and reminds me none of us are alone in our suffering. Our situations are much less unique in their sorrow that we might imagine.
Which is your favorite holiday, and why?
Thanksgiving without question (though Easter is a close second). It’s the time with family, focusing on what we have to be thankful for, and yes, the food. And it is the beginning of the anticipation of Christmas, which I enjoy much more than Christmas itself. I am never ready to leave behind that season of joy and Thanksgiving.
Who’s in your family?
My husband, Jason, and our children Liam, Delaney, Darien, Halleigh, Hannah, Landon, and Peter. Our family is a blended family with lots of children who are the same age and includes a set of twins.
