I'll try to come up with some things about myself. Here goes:

1. I LOVE the Lord!

2. I'm a published poet with the God-given talent bestowed upon me.

3. I can put a coat hanger (wire please) on the end of my nose and it won't fall off.

4. I've been to the Grand Canyon.

5. I've taken a Chicago Bear's blood pressure (Jim Covert, #74, at a trade show in Zion, Illinois in the mid-1980s).

6. I love to do volunteer work and am currently helping out my local Christian radio station, KFLR (90.3 in Phoenix).

7. I was conceived in Europe, but born in Iowa. (Try to figure that one out.)

8. I was the editor-in-chief of my award-winning high school newspaper.

9. I was in a Christmas play in third grade and my line was... "Good night mom, good night dad" as we skipped off stage. I honestly could not tell you what the rest of the play was about. :)

10. Did I tell you I LOVE the Lord?
