My faith has always been a part of who I am as I was very blessed to have a committed Christian family. I find beauty in God's creation. . . whether it is a sunny or a cloud day, whether it is a nice and comfortable 75 degrees or, because I am from Minnesota, even when it is 20 below. I prefer quiet and open spaces to big city life because I was raised in the country. So when I need to escape and renew myself I head to the northwoods of Wisconsin. I love to cook, read, watch great, classic movies, photography, music and theatre. I enjoy the out of doors, especially seeing the beauty that surrounds us. When I go for a walk, I am distracted searching the gravel for agates or stopping to listen at the sounds that surround. Aside from that, I have a responsible position in the corporate world which allows me to use the gifts that God has given me and be generous with his blessings.
