Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "It is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability, that counts." — Corrie Ten Boom

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Clowns and monkeys. These deep-seated fears were inherited from my mother who also fears clowns and monkeys. (My sister does too.)

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. The disciple, Peter. He always seemed to be doing and saying the wrong thing but Jesus loved him and worked with him anyway. That is very reassuring.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Cambria; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;}Even as a little girl I was intrigued by Leonardo da Vinci. It would be incredible to tagalong with him for a day and watch him create.I would say, “Teach me.”

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I’m quiet, which is why I like to express myself by writing.
