Making a Difference; Sharing what I love
Interests: I enjoy being creative through rubberstamping, quilting and cross-stitch but I must admit that at this time in my life, rubberstamping has become my newest addiction. I also like gardening, traveling and spending time with my family. I enjoy a personal relationship with Jesus and am especially thankful for the Christian friends He has brought into my life.
