8 What’s the ideal dream job for you?  Honestly, I am doing it! I am a mom! It’s the most rewarding, yet exhausting job for sure. I also teach in a Christian school, which I love. Since, I have been on my own journey to good health, it has opened new doors to be able to teach and encourage others in a new platform.

I have a heart for people and truly find joy when they are joyful, and my heart hurts when they are hurting. I am determined because I persevere and press on no matter the obstacle.

19 What are your favorite hobbies? I love running races, teaching,singing, and  writing.

20 What are your pet peeves or interesting things about you that you dislike? I hate that I am so forgetful. It is ridiculous, I have to use post it notes constantly. I also forget what I am going to say often, right in the middle of a conversation. Todd and I were on our way to Walmart to buy post-it notes, and I literally asked him what we were supposed to get because I forgot. It takes so much effort for me to remember things.

21 What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? PB2 always blows my mind,,,powdered peanut butter! 🙂

22 Name one of your favorite things about someone in your family. My brother is very spontaneous. It’s something that I completely lack. I have a desire to be, but tend to like to have all the details planned out. I am becoming more spontaneous as I get older though.

23 Tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours. I am pretty uncomfortable in new places and situations, so if I am alone in a new place, I will have a pretend conversation on my phone just so I don’t look uncomfortable.

24 What are some jobs you have done in the past? I worked at McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, and drove an ice cream truck one summer. Do you see a common thread here? I also worked at the Boys and Girls Club summer camp.

25 What is your favorite season? I love Fall! I live in Northwest Indiana, so summer is too hot, winter is too cold, spring is too rainy, but fall is perfect. I love hot cider, hoodies , leaves, bonfires, jeans, and pumpkin everything!
