living to learn & learning to live
1. what were you doing 10 years ago?
to be honest, 1997 was not a good year for me. to put it shortly, i had an emotional breakdown and spent a lot of time and energy working on some personal issues. besides that, just juggling the roles of wife, mommy, friend, and women's ministry leader. my grandfather also died that year.
2. what were you doing 1 year ago?
let's see... don and i started a youth ministry at a new-start church just about a year ago. so the first half of the year we were listening intently for God's voice and direction. the second half was spent getting to know new kids and getting a new ministry up and going. dani graduated from high school in may and started her first year of college in august. we went to hawaii for vacation.
3. five snacks you enjoy?
string cheese with pretzels, cold watermelon, quesadilla, popsicles, soft pretzel
4. five songs to which you know all the lyrics:
desperado (eagles), never alone (barlow girl), bye bye miss american pie (don mclean), imagine (john lennon), piano man (billy joel)
+ many praise songs
+ many songs from the sound of music, mary poppins, moulin rouge, etc.
5. five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
-buy a small retreat center in the mountains where we could live and also give groups a place and opporutnity to meet. -or-
-buy a space to open a youth center, complete with coffee bar, pool and ping pong tables and stage for local bands to perform.
-we would also buy a motor home of some kind and travel the united states. once we did that, we would want to travel to other countries.
-of course, our kid's college expenses would be paid for.
-i'm sure we would also give quite a bit to the church and/or a charity.
