1. Where did you grow up?

Shreveport, Louisiana.

2. What is your favorite Bible verse, book or story? Why?

It is too hard to pick just one. Three of my favorite verses are:

Mark 8:34-35, which calls us to offer/to use up every drop of my life—with none left over; Isaiah 43:1-2, which I hold on to every day; and Matthew 25:21-23, which is my hope for meeting God.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

“Arthur” (the original).

My dog’s name is Hopson.

4. Who are three of the people you admire?

David Hull, Tracie and Mike Woods (my sister and brother-in-law) and Robert Parham.

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

I am addicted to Tab—the original diet drink. It’s still available for those who can “spot the pink”!
