Getting to Know Me More

Name the song title that best describes your life. And why?
“Amazing Grace” because of the grace God has shown me in my life.

If every job had the same pay and hours, what job would you like to have?
I would be a stay-at-home Nana!

What would be the most amazing adventure you could go on?
I would love to go back to Israel again. Once you’ve been, it’s in your soul!

Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life? Why?
My husband and sons. They have always encouraged me and tell me that I can when I think I can’t. My family is so important to me!

What’s something on your bucket list that people might not know?
I’ve always wanted to go to Alaska and live “off the grid” for a little while.

What cartoon character best represents your personality? Explain.
Charlie Brown’s friend Peppermint Patty. She’s kind of quiet, but when she does speak it’s witty and light-hearted.

If you could meet anyone from the Bible, who would it be and what would you ask them? (Besides Jesus)
Mary, the mother of Jesus. I would ask her how she lived during her early life. My mother always told me she must have been a great person. I’m sure she loved and obeyed her parents and was kind to those around her. It’s amazing to think that God chose her to carry our Lord!!

How did you become a Daystar Singer?
My husband, Bobby, and I were hired together and had the privilege of being some of the first Daystar Singers. Leading up to that time, Bobby had been singing with Joni on TV and I would sometimes sing with them. One day, Joni asked me to be on the first Daystar Singers project and I’ve been a part of the group ever since!

What is your funniest moment as a Daystar Singer?
One time, we were on our way home from a ministry trip and it was really late at night. Suddenly, we heard a big thump and realized we had run over a huge deer! We all felt so sorry for the deer, but it was the start of a lot of great jokes all the way back to Daystar. Scary!

Tell us about a time when God has been great in your life?
Last year, my mom was very sick and it didn’t look like she was going to make it. I asked her mom, “Do you want to go home or do you feel like God still needs you here with us?”  She said, ” I want to stay here with my family for now.”  I grabbed my husband by the hand and said, “Walk with me.” We began to pray for her and asked God to save her life and allow us to have her for a little while longer. When we returned, He had already begun the work in her body. Praise God for always loving us and guiding us through the storms of life!
