What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time?

Reading. I’m a definite bookaholic. When/if I ever have a reasonable amount of spare time, I also like to paint, draw and bake.

If you could use one word to describe yourself, what would that word be?

Reserved. Not shy or withdrawn as such, but I do take a while to become comfortable enough with people to open up fully. I’m intensely private and only share my innermost thoughts with those closest to me.

What brought you to Hope Community Church?

We were looking for a church home and knew this was where James & Samara and David & Allison attended, so thought we’d give it a go.

Are you involved in any of the weekly activities or going’s on in the church currently? And what do you find enjoyable about these?

I am on the roster for morning tea, communion, data and singing. It’s nice to be able to contribute a little something to the church as a whole.

What does being a Christian mean to you?

It is the foundation of my life – the reason for waking up every day and the hope to go on even when times are tough.

What is the strangest thing you have eaten?

I can’t really think of anything weird here. Unless you count green smoothies and vegan cheesecake as strange

What is your favourite animal and why?

Another hard question, as I love most animals. Those with fur anyway. I’d probably have to go with dogs though. They exhibit such unconditional love and loyalty. They are cute and funny and you can do training and sports with them, like I do with my two.

Do you have a favourite Bible passage, verse or story? Why does it mean so much to you?

Philippians 4:6. I tend to be a worry wart, so this verse helps remind me what I should do with my anxiety. Stressing doesn’t solve anything!

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An architect. That was my goal right through school, and I was accepted into architecture at uni at the end of year 12. Then I changed my mind at the last minute and changed to interior design. I still always wonder ‘what if….’
