What is your favorite Scripture verse or passage?
My favorite Scripture verse, and personal “anthem” for the last four years is Romans 8:26-28. “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don’t even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

What was your childhood ambition?
A childhood ambition, which is still true today, is to “save the world”.

What was your first job?
My first job was cashiering and serving ice cream at Larry’s Ice Cream in the Florida Mall.

What is your favorite food?
My favorite foods are Italian, steak, shrimp, and Pepsi.

What would a perfect day be for you?
A perfect day for me is to be with loved ones sitting on the porch of a cabin over looking the mountains with the cool breezes and clean air, peace and God’s majesty all around.

What are your favorite characteristics of Jesus?
My favorite characteristic of Jesus is his patience and compassion.
