11 Questions from Michelle
1. What is one household chore that you wish you never had to do? Laundry
2. When you do laundry do you put it away or does it hang out in baskets for a week day? Pssh, weeks it is! (I am finding that many women have this problem, too. Whew!)
3. What is your dream job? Worship Leader
4. If you could do anything, what would you do to change the World? Establish a daily mandatory naptime and chocolate dessert time.
5. What is your favorite movie? Dirty Dancing
6. If you could re-do one moment in your life what would it be and why? Not one thing because I believe my life is ordered by God. I, of course, have regrets, but there is purpose in life because of Jesus.

8. Where is your favorite vacation spot and why? Alaska and the Caribbean...need I say more?
9. Who has been most inspirational in your life and why? Of course Jesus and my husband, but I have to mention that lately one of the most inspirational love stories I have ever witnessed was the marital love I witnessed between an associate pastor at Cedar Street and his wife who recently lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. It truly was an amazing love story, and one that honored Jesus so much. (Read more about it here. You'll have to read the journal starting at page 48 and work backwards to page 1.)
