What's one of your favorite Scriptures or Bible Stories and why?

One of my favorite scriptures right now is Colossians 3:12-17 because I love the descriptive language of clothing ourselves with qualities that will make us better followers of Christ.

Describe your "perfect" day

I’d start off with brunch with my cousins and sister, then go get a massage. After the massage I’d go read at a coffee shop or go on a walk while listening to a podcast. For dinner I’d go to Kobe or any hibachi grill and afterwards I’d hang out and talk with friends and family.

What are your top three favorite books or movies and why?

My favorite books are Flipped, Perks of Being a Wallflower, and the Fablehaven Series, these are all books that a i read in Jr High and reread a lot because of the nostalgia around them. My favorite movies are the Lego Movie and The Intern, I love the Lego Movie because of all the jokes and the Intern because it always makes me feel good while watching.

What's your favorite family tradition?

Singing our prayers before meals and singing happy birthday to Jesus on Christmas.

If you could have dinner with ANYONE (past, present, or future), who would it be and why?

Harpo Marx. When I was little he was my favorite famous person because he was such an interesting person. I listened to one interview he did which was the first time I had heard him talk and I was just amazed.
