Nickname or “wannabe” name (If you don’t have a nickname, you can choose one you’d like, that tells us a little bit about who you are): I never had a nickname. Unless you count the one young man I worked with at a gas station/rental shop who called me Lady Di. If I could choose one? I’d choose “Sandra Bullock.”
I am: a magazine writer, book author, speaker, screenwriter, and Bible prophecy geek.
My best trait: I’m a student and teacher at heart. I have to study then share what I learn.
My bad habit: workaholic
Qualities I admire: Deep thinking.
What I like to read: nonfiction, especially about Bible prophecy. The one thing I can’t put down.
What I write: Mostly nonfiction. Working on fiction. Developing future film screenplays (which are also fiction).
What I watch: This season we’re enjoying the new shows Legend, Gotham, Scorpion, and N.C.I.S. – New Orleans. From past seasons we still enjoy the original N.C.I.S, Blue Bloods, Royal Pains, Ice Road Truckers, and catching up on Listener though it’s no longer on. We recently discovered Longmire but now that’s canceled – hoping another network picks it up. There are certain shows we at my house used to watch but quit watching because of the continual, gratuitous sexual connections, including Cover Affairs, Defiance, and Bones. I also enjoy fun family and faith-based movies, like God’s Not Dead, and corny holiday movies on the Hallmark Chanel. We’re often filling our “watch time” with reruns of Touched by an Angel, Murder, She Wrote, or Diagnosis Murder. That might sound like a lot of watching, but I’m lucky because at my house we call all TV-watching and movie-going “research.”
My family: One husband. One cat.
My favorite food, snack, or beverage: Ice cream. Chocolate. Any other flavor is a waste of ice cream.
What I love to do: Besides my work? Riding motorcycles. Gardening. Photography.
What I admire: Strong godly leaders.
What makes me happy: Christians who firmly but lovingly stand up to erroneous or sin-tolerating thinking.
What makes me sad: Compromising the Truth of God or softening that truth in order to “accept” sinful behavior, whether due to political correctness or fear of being slammed.
I believe: Jesus is coming soon. Not a cliché. I mean really, really soon. And that when He does He will fulfill all the remaining prophecies. That the current set of four lunar eclipses are prophetically significant. That people need to come to Christ for salvation now, but there’s not much more time left.
