The most influential person in my life has been
Strong growing Christian, Good communicator, Integrity, Affectionate, Sense of humor, Social, Clean, Orderly, Financially responsible. I'm not at all interested in an alcoholic or smoker. So, PLEASE PASS ME BY IF YOU ARE AN ALCOHOLIC OR SMOKER, OR DO DRUGS (considering this statement, it's a waste of your time and mine if you are.
The first thing people notice about me
I like communicating and I usually have questions about the other person, so I can get a better picture of who they truly are, and the events of their life and how they came to be who they are today. Hopefully this doesn't intimidate you!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Eric Liddell, it told of his life as a missionary. The Title was also: Christian Heroes Then and Now. It was subtitled, "Something Greater than Gold". It also told of their encampment during difficult times. He was the fastest runner ever. They made the movie of part of his life called "Chariots of Fire".He was a remarkable and very loved man of God!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I'm grateful for my family and many friends and I'm a stage 4 colon cancer survivor.
- I am thankful for my church and those people involved in it.
- I appreciate my level of energy and good health. God has been very good to me through my life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My humor is not meant to hurt, but to help people to relax and be themselves as much as possible. I'm a professional clown, so sometimes it seems to come off in odd ways because I see humor in some things that others don't. They usually don't catch on right away because my face looks somewhat somber but my words are definitely "off the wall". Smile!
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Outgoing, Passionate, Spontaneous
A little more about me
I began teaching Sunday School at the age of 16. My mother was a teacher of teachers and of children as well, so I followed very easily in her foot steps. That's probably why I ask "what's the reason for that behavior or action". I am very curious, because that's the way I'm made, not to put anyone on the spot or to cause them to feel uncomfortable. I like to know the "why's" of behavior". You'll notice in return I give you reasons for my actions.
