I love to bake and cook and I’m always looking for new recipes & techniques to challenge me☺️.

I have amazing grandchildren that I love spending time with. We love to hike in nature and a couple of them actually like hanging out with me in the kitchen!!

I strive everyday to seek God and His will in my life. 1 Corinthians 15:10 “By the grace of God, I am what I am.”
