I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, but I currently live in a very small town in central Iowa. Detours along the way include 2 years in Congo and 6 years in Colorado. My husband and I enjoy a calm life in our small town, while our son and his wife live in central Missouri with two darling little sons whom we love to visit.
Hebrews 12:1-2. The race of our life is full of unexpected changes, and we must keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who endured much more than we will ever face!
I taught piano lessons as a high school student.
I love to play the piano (and teach it), do handwork, create beautiful flower gardens, and travel — especially to places where I can speak the language of the people.
Bucket List Item
I haven’t really established a list, but my husband and I would love to take a cruise both on a river in Europe and through the northern part of the Mediterranean. I would also love to visit all of the national parks in the United States.
I have traveled extensively, and probably the most exotic place was to the mountains of eastern Congo where we hiked into the forest and watched gorillas playing together.
Person I’d Like to Meet
Ben Carson. He is a man I admire both because of what he has overcome and what he represents currently.
