My Quote on Life: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs, Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres,” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

My Advice to Young Women: Believe in yourself and forever have confidence.
How I Balance it All: We are empty nesters now, yet there never seems to be enough time to do everything we want to! However, it is keeping in mind what is most important, our values and ensuring that we check ourselves each and every day to make sure we are living our life to the fullest.
