Here are a few more answers to all of you great bloggers who asked some great questions:

Auburn Kat asked why I chose my line of work.

I have always loved working with children. I grew up a PK (Preacher’s Kid) and was the kid who always taught the nursery class, helped with children’s groups, and babysat kids during choir practice or other church functions. I have always been more comfortable talking to children rather than adults. I got involved with children with special needs because they taught me something everyday I worked with them. They and their families exemplify perseverance, character, and joy. They are the best that the world has to offer!

Chickbug asked if I had one post that I could have everyone read what would it be.

Most likely anything under my Choice Thoughts Page.

My first pick would be anything from the Army Wife Series.

1. Five Years Ago recalls the memories of marrying my husband weeks before he deployed to Iraq.

2. A Piece of My Mind was written after my husband was involved in a panel for war veterans and I wasn’t able to express my thoughts on the war to the panel so the blog got it all.

3. On That Note is my view on war and a follow-up post to A Piece of My Mind.

Renee asked what song would be playing in my version of Hell.

This is so easy. They are both Bette Midler songs, The Rose and Wind Beneath My Wings, and they would both be on repeat and shuffle, just those two. I hate them both. I have no reasons why except that I do. Nothing against Bette. Just the songs.

Alexa asked what was my favorite 80’s movie, what is my favorite movie quote and what is my middle name.

My favorite 80’s movie is, don’t hate, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. We used to watch it at every slumber party when I was young and it was the best!! My obsession with Sarah Jessica Parker began early.

One of my favorite funny movie quotes is from Coyote Ugly, again don’t hate. It makes me laugh every time. I can still picture this woman getting an attitude.

Violet: Hi. I’m Violet Sanford. I just recently moved to New York and was wondering if you’d give my tape to one of your artists. 

Wendy: Violet, that is so cute! Now lemme tell you about me. My name is Wendy and I first moved to New York when I was 21 to be a dancer, but I broke my big toe and then I got knocked up by this actor who dumped me to join the Peace Corps, so for the last 16 years I been raising my daughter all by myself and then two weeks ago, she tells me that she is a bisexual and that she hates me more than any person on this planet.

Wendy: Now tell me how I can help you, please, because I am dying to make your dreams come true.


And my middle name is Renae, not talk as some of you may have thought.

I will be back with the answers to all of your other questions very soon!

  4. Good ole coyote ugly… i haven’t seen that movie in forever!

  5. Oooooh I love Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! It was just on TV a couple of weeks ago, yeah I had to watch it. The music is so classic and the dancing, ah! Love.

  6. Ahh I LOVE Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! My best friend and I used to watch that, like, every single weekend. While playing the Barbie Queen of the Prom board game nonetheless. We were so cool!

  7. Great answers! What was it like growing up as a PK? Did you feel like you always had to be perfect? I always wondered that!

  8. I don’t know…’Talk’ had a certain ring to it… 😉

    I LOVE that movie quote. I can just picture it. Guess what I’m going to watch tonigh…if the power is on.

  9. Love all the answers! Great!

  10. Every time that Coyote Ugly is on TV I stop and watch it. Just can’t turn it off for some reason. I think it’s that girl inside all of us that really want to be the performer, whether it be on stage of on top of a bar dancing 🙂

  11. Great post. It was great to learn a little bit more about you! 🙂

  12. It’s fun to learn about you. I could have answered the SAME thing for the first question — I wasn’t a PK but I was at church ALL the time working with kids.

    And still am!! 😀

  13. Bette Midler, huh? She can be annoying, but I never would have thought it to be hell worthy. Very funny!

  14. I love the reasons why you work with children with special needs. It shows you are a very compassionate person!

  15. I’m glad you linked to the Army Wife series because I totally missed those posts! Off to read them now.

  16. ok there is NO shame in loving COYOTE UGLY!!!!!

    i LOVE that movie!

  17. You were a PK?! Awesome. I wasn’t one, but I spent a lot of time with the kids at my church and was a camp counselor for an extended period of time at the beginning of college. I love kids for the same reason — you learn something new every day.

    And I totally ditto the Bette Midler songs. Ick.

  18. I was alway wondering about your blog name!

  19. I enjoyed reading your story. Please join our minister’s kid community at!
