So, with all that said, "What do I enjoy?"

  • First and foremost, I love to laugh. 
  • I love decorating and cleaning my house. As odd as that sounds, it relaxes me to clean and find new ways to display objects in my home. 
  • I discovered corporate prayer at my church in Fayetteville, Tennessee. The last four years, the dedicated ladies of the prayer room have become a spiritual safe-haven for me. Our prayer room has morphed into an honest room of raw, desperate hunger for God's vision and will. Sometimes it is so emotionally draining, that after prayer, I have to fight the urge to go nap. Sometimes, I just give in. What a blessing!
  • My husband and I love do-it-yourself projects. 
  • Since we moved to farming country, growing our own vegetables has become a fun adventure. Now, I like planning our vertical gardens and the initial spring to summer time period but my husband is the one that is dedicated to watering and feeding our plants. I am not a huge fan of heat, sweat and anything that flies and buzzes around me. 
  • I am an introvert that loves to just be with her husband and at home. Since I had to move around for twenty-five years, I crave putting down my roots. As you can see above, literally planting and enjoying the stay-at-home life that most Americans live.
