Number of Children: 4

One Fun Fact About You: “I love getting the mail everyday: there is something exciting about the prospect of what could be in there!  My daughter and I fight over who gets to get the mail, LOL!

Your Favorite Book: “Searching for and Maintaining Peace”

Your Favorite Scripture: “My current favorite is:

‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.'”

Finish this statement: “Motherhood is a mighty calling, because…”

“Motherhood is a mighty calling because we are called to selflessly give to our family as we teach and show them how to be children of Jesus.  Also because that calling is SO HARD at times but SO WORTH IT!”

Favorite quote about motherhood:

“As a recovering perfectionist and self critic, I’m learning that it’s more about embracing the journey vs completing the tasks.”

  • Hi Candace, this is funny: I always LOVED getting the mail when I was younger (too much junk mail and bills nowadays though) and your favorite book is my favorite book! I also love that Scripture, anything about trusting it all to God does me the most good. We are obviously soul sisters. ☺️
