Tell us about your personal life! Family, hobbies, etc.

I’ve been married 30 years to my Ai Ren, my Loved One, who was the first person I saw the unconditional grace and love of Jesus Christ lived out personally. We have three fabulous children who have married three fabulous spouses; Ethan & Katie, Aschah & Christ, Patriciafaith & Sean. We love to stay connected to friends from all over the world from when we lived for 10 years on the mission field. We enjoy visiting our children and family all over the United States, woodworking, playing music, cooking together and I enjoy reading, gardening, and learning more about different cultures and countries.

What’s your favorite food?

Favorite food….sooo many. American, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mediterranean, Brazilian, I just really enjoy food and sharing it with others.

When/how did you begin your relationship with Jesus Christ?

Two weeks before our first child was born I became a believer. I wanted to be a good mother and a good wife…I tried to do things on my own and I just couldn’t make a long-standing change. I needed something much bigger and stronger and powerful and loving than myself to be what I wanted to be. It was then that I asked Him to be THE ONE that is bigger, stronger, more powerful, more loving, more accepting than me and change me to be that person HE wanted me to be.

What’s one thing about you that others would be surprised to know?

I play the harp and have done some special events with it.
