What's the most sensible thing you've ever heard someone say?
I take great pride in my fabulous husband and beautiful daughters. They are a huge blessing in my life and the reason why I continue to want to live life to the fullest. They inspire me everyday to practice Godly living, integrity, good nutrition and physical fitness,
What gets you excited about life?
My hero is Christ Jesus. His love for mankind is beyond anything that we can comprehend. I have great respect for the men and women who are missionaries, evangelists and pastors - ambassadors of Christ who minister the love of God to a hurting world.
If you had to teach something what would you teach?
My most prized possession is my health. Years ago I was very ill, and I felt very close to death, but the love and prayers of my family pulled me through. Once you experience that you realize that your health is golden and owns no price tag.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
As a freshman in college my friends called me "Edge" and "Blondie". After college and during my first job my co-workers called me "the Barbie doll". Now I teach elementary school and the Kindergarten students (cutties!) call me "Mrs Governor!" To show respect the church youth call me "Miss Ellen".
What is your idea of a fun date night?
My favorite season is summer. I love the bright sun, hot weather, and going swimming. However I am very very fair, so I use a lot of sunscreen! Summer for me as a teacher means.....vacation for 2 1/2 months......Yeah!!
