Getting to know you

I haven’t done this before, and I’m really looking forward to it! You care enough about me (or just what I say) to stop by or subscribe. I’d like to ask each of you to answer five questions, and get to know you by reading your response via your comments. So here we go!

  1. Do you blog , and if so – where?
  2. If you could switch professions, what would you pursue?
  3. What would you consider your greatest talent / gift?
  4. Which musician / band would you want to see in concert if you could get tickets?
  5. Who, besides family, has impacted your life most / is your hero?

Thanks in advance! Pass this onto a friend / someone that might enjoy it! PRAYING for my daughters – that God would give them understanding while with friends at school. PRAISING God for giving us the parents He did – that prayed for us.

    2. Well, I strongly dislike being a student, so I can’t wait until I graduate and get more into IT, but if I weren’t in IT, I’d love to do architectural space planning.
    3. All things PC (sorry, Gabe…I’d like to learn Mac OS if I could get my hands on one) – programming (mostly web), network/server configuration/administration, troubleshooting, etc.

    4. The Who
    5. (I can’t pick one). Nate Saint (he was my childhood hero after reading a biography), Pete Wynter (a great developer of young leaders), Yan Nicholls (A Mentor of mine) & Tom Appel (Really taught me alot about what it means to be a man in church)
