curled up on the couch or on my bed before I go to sleep.
What are you looking forward to
doing this summer?- Spending
a week with my family in the mountains where I grew up.
Do you prefer e-books or
paperback/hardback books?-Paperback books all the way!
If you could meet one
historical person, who would it be?-This is a really hard question because I love history.
Amelia Earhart has always interested me, I want to know her story. Or any
Native American-I can't imagine what they experienced!
You are on a desert island. You
can have wish for three things. What would they be?-I would say the Bible, my husband
(are people ok : ), and peanut butter. This is always a difficult
question for me.
Who is your favorite fictional
character of all time?-Oh
this is an impossible question! I have so very many but the first that
comes to mind is Michael from the book Redeeming Love.

have learned from reading a fiction book?-To appreciate history and those
who lived before us. Also, that God is bigger than our own small little

used, it makes no difference to me.
What have you learned about
matter how much I plan, God is in control with the future. No matter how
much I want to be in control, I clearly am not in charge. This is a constant struggle for me, I like
to know what is going to happen! But I am humbled by a God who cares enough about me to tell me not to worry and that I am His!
