If you had to choose one thing to complete from your bucket list right now, what would you choose? Opening my own Christian preschool.
If you could travel to any era in history, which would you travel to and why? I would like to go back to the Garden of Eden with the knowledge I have now. Not to change things, but just to talk face to face with God about what is going on now.
If you had the power to transform yourself into an animal, which would you choose and why? I would want to be a a dog because they are practically humans with fur.
When you were growing up, what household chore did you absolutely loathe? Putting my clothes away. To this day that is the chore I still hate.
Name a Bible verse that speaks most to where you in life at this point in time: “For they intended to harm you, but God intended it for good, for what is now being accomplished the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20
Briefly explain to us your testimony: Grew up in a home that went to church, but that was the extent of our Christian experience. It was at camp at nine years old that I learned that God wants a personal relationship with me and accepted him as savior. Since then I have tried to live my life for Him but have hit rocky parts along the way. The good news is that even in those rocky times God was still there and he has redeemed my life.
