* When I have time I enjoy gardening, sewing, traveling, and spending extra time with my family. 
* My favorite Bible verses are from Philippians 4:4-8 where we are reminded to find our joy in a God we can fully rely on at all times.
* One of the greatest joys I have in teaching is to partner with parents in training their children to learn more about God and His world so they may let His love shine through them as they serve HIm.
