What is your life verse and why?

“The Joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

This verse puts everything in perspective…from my humanness to his resurrecting power. When we look to the Lord as our strength, it’s like a secret weapon and he freely gives wisdom and joy. I need that every day. Say that verse enough and you’ll never have a bad day!

Can you touch your tongue to your nose?
Gross. No.

What’s your most used Emoji?
The heart

What’s your hidden talent?
Choreography – it’s my superpower

What’s your go-to roadtrip snack?
Peanut butter filled pretzels – the perfect balance of salty and sweet.

What’s the last show you binged watch?
“The Mandalorian”  Can’t get enough of baby Yoda!

Favorite zoo animal?
Red pandas are adorable and mysterious…just like baby Yoda.

Beach or mountains?
Beach hands down. If mountains are in the background that’s a plus!

What’s your middle name?

iPhone or Android?
Sadly an iPhone so I can stay more easily connected to my family but there’s no camera like an Android!

Pizza toppings?
Pineapple and ham of course but no one else in my family likes it Hawaiian style so I haven’t had it in over a decade.
