What is your favorite family tradition?
My kids are grown now, but when they were younger Friday nights were always pizza and movie night. When we lived in Honduras you couldn’t just order a pizza to be delivered or buy one in the frozen food section. So, my kids and I learned how to make dough from scratch and had packages of pepperonis sent to us from grandparents! The tradition carried on even after we moved back to the U.S. but Little Caesars replaced our home made version.
Who is your least favorite superhero and why?
Hulk is not my favorite. I think it’s because he’s always so grumpy!
What is your favorite scripture/life verse?
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
If you were trapped in a zombie apocalypse and you were only allowed one weapon to defend yourself, what weapon would that be?
I think I’d go Princess Leia and opt for a lightsaber.
