Life motto: “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” – Colossians 3:23
Favorite scripture: “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” – James 1:5,6
