Likes: Time with my family, hunting, cooking (especially the grill and the smoker). I’m a lousy golfer, but I love to play. Love Krispy Kreme (I mean donuts are so much better in a flat box!). I’m a coffee-a-holic! Several cups a day and really prefer my beans from Central America. Yep, I’ve even roasted my own beans a few times!
Favorite Bible Story: Abraham and Isaac. But I want to read the parts that were left out. Like, what happened when they got home and Isaac said, “Mom, guess what dad planned to do to me!”
