I am 47, two terrific kids, great hubby, blessed with good friends. I love God and I love God's mystery, always have more questions than answers . I believe in tolerance, truth, love, forgiveness, second chances, beauty, pleasure in small things, integrity and honor amongst many others. Love to read, hope to find some new reads listed under everybody's profile. If I had to pick a favorite literary author it would be Steinbeck, specifically "Grapes of Wrath" which content resonates what I am afraid we as a nation might be facing in some form or another in the not too distant nature. My favorite christian author is the late Dr. Scott Peck. Movies too numerous to list just a couple Green Mile, Fried Green Tomatoes, Love song for Bobby Long. Good Will Hunting (awesome) and River Runs through it. Great fondness for animals, proud pet of two german shepherds and the cutest little mutt on the planet, two cats, one sweet, one borderline crazy (like me.) Last but not least two quarter Horses and a pony. Last and definietely least a big mouth quaker parakeet. I'm so glad I found Beliefnet, so many interesting people I can learn from, and by joining I hope to enrich my relationship with God.
