My vocation (or calling in life): volunteer.
My congregation: First Lutheran Church, Pipestone, Minn.
My favorite hymn: “Lift High the Cross.”
My favorite Bible verse: Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
My favorite potluck dish: chicken wild-rice salad.
My favorite movie: “Schindler’s List.”
I prefer to sit here during worship: in the front on the right side.
The TV show I never miss: “Parenthood.”
My perfect day: would be at the beach with family — boating, swimming and good conversation.

People would be surprised to know that: I lost over 100 pounds.

I feel most Lutheran: on Reformation Sunday singing “A Mighty Fortress.”

I’m doing God’s work with my hands when: I’m helping others.
