What is something God has been teaching you lately you didn't know before?
To accept the unconditional love and mercy from Jesus but also extend the same to everyone around me. God's also using the quote from NT Wright to teach me a lot about waking by faith and not by sight - "We cannot tell in what strange ways God will work. We can be sure that He is utterly worthy of our trust and that He leads us into the dark only to teach us to walk closer to Him. We walk by faith, not by sight. But our faith, weak though it is at times, is faith in a great and sovereign God."
One of your proudest moments?
My wedding day.
What is your definition of a retreat?
Escaping the tyranny of the urgent to re-center and release.

Music... many different types. It causes all different emotions within me... I love music.
What is your biggest challenge?
Dying to self daily and surrendering to God's control in my life. That and getting 3 stars on every level of Angry Birds. Those durn pigs and their laughing and snorting! Now THAT'S a challenge!
