What I am doing on a perfect weekend evening.

I love to cook and host and spend time with my dearest friends! A perfect weekend evening includes a long lingering dinner with room for rich conversation, and plenty of delicious food!

What do you do when you are not at Lifeline?

I enjoy reading, writing, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family. I also love food and exploring new restaurants in town, or trying new recipes at home!!

Favorite scripture.

Psalm 73
