Let's wrap these questions up...

Susan asked: What is the single greatest thing you learned to date about life? Can you guess why I left this one for the end? What a tough question. Everything I think of sounds so cliche'. But I guess my answer would have to be that it's a gift from God and we need to put our heart into all we do. For me, that means being passionate, do things to the best of my ability, be compassionate to others, learn life's lessons, and share God's love.

And I would add: Life is not a destination, it's a journey. (okay, cliche'-ish, but something I firmly believe in.)

Jamey asked: What made you decide to stop going to church and then to go back? I'm going to give the short, and somewhat vague, version. I stopped going to church because of certain situations that happened when I was a teenager. I saw the church as a bunch of hypocrites and didn't want to have anything to do with it at that point.

But when Danielle was born, I realized that my Christian upbringing was a good thing and it's what I wanted for my family. Don and I were invited to church by a friend and decided to give it a try. Don was raised Catholic but hadn't gone to church since he was a child. We both felt like God was calling to us and gave our hearts and lives to Him. It was different for me as an adult. I then knew what it meant to have a relationship with Him. I did not have that as a teenager.

Carrie asked: What is one thing you look forward to most about heaven besides seeing Jesus face to face? No more pain or suffering. Also, that it won't matter how heavy I am - no one will care!

Thank you everyone for your questions and helping me celebrate my one year blogging anniversary. I had a great time.

are there any of us who at some point didn't think that church was full of hypocrites? failing the whole while to realize that by thinking so, we were no better than they?

it's been fun learning more about you.
