What are you likely to be doing on Friday after a good week at Design Alliance?
If the weather is nice, I’d be outside working in the flower beds or yard. If the weather is bad, I’d be sewing or possibly reading. (I’m trying to be a better reader)

Do you have any pets?
Yes, we have one dog and tropical fish. When we were raising our 3 children we had a dog, pigs, sheep, calves, horses, chickens, goldfish, and a turtle.

Who would you choose to be your mentor, if you had the choice?
Barbara Johnson. She was a speaker on the Women of Faith tour. Barbara lost two sons, one in Vietnam and one at the hands of a drunk driver. A third son was estranged for several years. She lost her husband, then was diagnosed with a brain tumor and also diabetes. Barbara was known to have beaten the odds of adversity by using her experiences and faith to help others. Her book, ‘Stick a Geranium in your Hat and Be Happy’ is just one example of her faith, perseverance, and positive attitude in life.

What’s your favorite fruit/vegetable?
