What do you do to relax?
I relax by reading.

What are you reading right now?
Reshonda Tate Billingsley's “The Secret She Kept”

What do you appreciate most about the people of Cedar Grove Church?
I appreciate the kindness and concern for one another.

What quotes have you found most meaningful in life?

“Stop letting people, who do so little for you, control so much of your mind, feelings, and emotions.”

Why should an individual who has not been to CGC come visit?
I believe people should visit Cedar Grove because we have the best choir in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and to hear the Word from our awesome Pastor! Also, they should visit because we are very friendly and welcome all guests.

What music are you currently listening to?
Cedar Grove Mix Choir CD (Gospel)

What websites do you visit daily?


Where do you hope to be spiritually in the next year?
In the next year, I'd like to be closer to God than I am now.
