We had our first child when I was 34, and our last when I was 45.
We lost a child in miscarriage.
I am Swedish and Norwegian on my Mom’s side, English and Irish on my Dad’s.
I am nearly 6 feet tall.
I had the adventure of an appendectomy when I was 15.
My favorite candy is York Peppermint Patties.
I love the smell of sea air, but I prefer to live in a mountainous area.
I’d like to learn to play a hammered dulcimer.
There is nothing better than napping in a cabin with the sound of the wind in the firs.
I love to write.

I am a Daddy’s girl.
I’d love to go “under cover” in the alto section of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
My first job after college was as the secretary to the Dean Emeritus of the College of Architecture at Clemson University. I was also book keeper for the Clemson Architectural Foundation…a responsibility that fell to me, I believe, because I graduated from a Christian college, and was presumed to be honest (it was certainly not because of my vast experience…I had none, not even one class on the subject!)
My first job as a kid was a paper route, then I did short stints at Burger King (I believe everyone should be on the other side of that counter for at least a week) and also helping at a veterinary clinic.
My favorite possession is a key fob from my Dad’s keychain, which says “A Father Leads With Love”. This was so true of him. I had given it to him for Father’s Day years ago, and when he died it was given back to me.
My favorite flower is a rose–pastel pink.
My favorite holiday is Easter.
My favorite memory is sitting on my Dad’s lap to read the funny papers every Sunday afternoon.

My greatest weakness is stubbornness; but I like to call it “determination”. 😉

My husband is terrific.
My most wonderful answer to prayer is that both of my parents, in their twilight years, accepted Christ as their Savior.
My favorite hobby is teaching God’s Word…to children or to ladies groups. I love to do it.
