What is the best and worst decision you’ve ever made? If you have to give any advice to your younger self what would that be?

The best decision I ever had to make was getting married and the worst decision was not taking high school seriously.

If I can give my younger self an advice it would be to think before I act.

What woman inspires you and why?

Most women in my family inspire me every day and all for different reasons, whether it’s how hard working they are or how they are with their children, and how long they’ve been with their spouse and still love each other.

Tell me about a goal you are working on:

Continuing school is a goal I am working on.

Tips for a happy marriage be yourself, let him be himself, do what he enjoys, do what you enjoy, do what you both like, go on date nights, always try to make your marriage a little better than yesterday. Love above all!

It is my hope to inspire and be inspired by other awesome women and tell their stories through my lens. Sometimes we need to be reminded how precious, beautiful and strong God created us.
