What is your favorite thing about Boiling Springs?
It's Mayberry … The town, the people, everything is perfect. Boiling Springs is a relaxed, friendly, easy going environment, who could ask for more?
Who has been your role model for you and why?
My Parents have always been great. Always teaching me right from wrong but never being “preachy”. Recently though, they have reached “Hero” status with me. Since retiring a few years ago, they have been an example of how to be a servant of Christ simply by loving others. Whether its “Meals on Wheels”, Soup Kitchens, or St. Judes, they are constantly giving of themselves. They are great examples of the person that I one day hope to be.  
What motivates or energizes you?
The feeling of getting something accomplished. It is so rewarding to set a goal, to have a plan, to follow through and finally see it completed. Its keeps me motivated and the result is always worth the hard work. 

My favorite portion of Scripture is:
 Revelation 21:4 …And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there will be no more death, or mourning or crying, there shall be no more pain; for the former things have passed away. This is a verse that I hang onto. There is so much sadness in this life and this promise gives hope, hope of life without sadness, death, mourning and pain. Something to hold on to, cherish, and look forward to.
My hobbies and interests are:  
I enjoy almost anything outdoors. Camping, hiking, gardening, I also love photography, reading and sports.
