1. Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know.
Recently received my counselor's license, and now I'm working on my doctorate in psychology.
2. What do you do to relax?
Ride horses and sit outside to play my guitar. There's nothing like being out in the open air, either on horseback, or with my guitar, or both!
3. What is your biggest fear?
Abandonment. It all goes back to my childhood. My mom abandoned me and my brother when I was a baby and my brother was just a little kid. Makes it kind of hard to stick my neck out when it comes to relationships, 'cause I'm scared it could happen again.
4. What gives you the greatest joy?
My relationship with God is my greatest joy and comfort, followed by spending time with Gracie, helping people, and my music.
5. What drives you crazy?
Uptight and controlling people. While I love Gracie with all my heart, her perfectionist tendencies and over-thinking everything drive me nuts!!!
6. What three things are most important to you.
God, the people He's placed in my life, and my music.
7. If you could go back and meet one historical person, who would it be and why?
Without a doubt, Jesus. While I know Him now, I'd love to walk the shores of Galilee with Him and listen to Him teach. Can't think of a better blessing than that.
8. What is one thing you'd like to change about yourself?
Definitely my tendency to stick my foot in my mouth. I really wanna help people, but I'm learning that sometimes they perceive that as me trying to "fix" them. They don't always appreciate my help, so it ends up making things worse rather than better.
9. What character quality do think is most important?
Authenticity and being true to who you are. God created us, so when we try to be someone we're not, it's almost like we're saying God didn't do a good job, you know?
10. What person had the greatest influence on your life?
My brother Andy. He's always looked out after me, and I wouldn't be who I am without his influence. I owe him so much.
