- Are you open to your own romance?
Yes, I’ve been praying for my future husband since I was a teenager, which was a LONG time ago.
- What’s the number one quality you’d require in a mate?
- What’s the number two quality you’d require in a mate?
- Where is the best place you can think of to find a mate?
Church would be ideal because I want a man who loves Jesus first and me second. But, I hear the grocery store is a great place to meet men. Who knows why, but I haven’t had any success there.
- What type of features are you attracted to?
I like manly men. Rugged and strong. Rough hands. But, every once in a while, I may want to see him in a suit.
- What would be a reason to end a potential romance for you?
Cheating. Or if he were a Laker fan. (Just kidding…maybe.)
- Where do you dream of getting married?
Under an oak tree. Maybe early evening with twinkling lights hanging from the branches.

About the book – Worth the Wait: Ellie Lansing has a picture-perfect life with a close-knit family and the perfect boyfriend. But her world is suddenly knocked off center when her drool-worthy boyfriend cheats, and her always-has-it-together mother is diagnosed with cancer. Ellie doesn’t get it. She always does the right thing – doesn’t God owe her a happy life? Through her heartache, Ellie learns that sometimes what seems like the end is really just the beginning and that what God has for us is always worth the wait.
