1. What inspires you?
Many things inspire me… Reading edifying books, hearing new ideas, and seeing progress in tasks or projects are all things that inspire me.
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord…” I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope to be farming in some capacity. I hope to be working alongside people I love, with things I love, and most of all for the One who is love.
3. What is one of your most fulfilling hobbies?
Since a hobby is “an activity done regularly during one’s leisure time for pleasure”, I would have to say that one of my most fulfilling hobbies is spending quality time with family and friends. Memories made with loved ones are lasting and irreplaceable.
4. What do you like to cook/favorite foods?
I like to cook almost anything. I love to experiment and others can attest to the fact that I rarely follow a recipe without adding my own twist. …Some creations turn out better than others. 😉
5. What relaxes you after a long day of farming?
After a long day I enjoy relaxing over a laid-back mealtime, some hot food, and a lot of good conversation. After that, a good night’s sleep prepares me for the next day!
6. How do you deal with farm animal deaths?
The first animal I ever remember seeing die was a calf that died when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I was with my grandfather at the time, and he explained to me that death was a part of a farm. Since then I’ve learned to accept the death of farm animals as a necessity.
7. Who do you hope to share farming skills with?
I hope to share my skills with anyone who has a teachable spirit and willing hands.
8. What do you like to read?
I like to read the Bible, Joel’s books, and some Christian novels from time to time.
9. What is your greatest asset?
I would have to say that one of my greatest assets is my ability to think practically. God has blessed me with common sense and I try to use it. 🙂
