Hi Jean! Nice to learn more about you. I hear you on how difficult it is to cast our cares on the Lord. I'm always snatching them back. Sigh.

Jean, love the house! But...I can't get past tonic water...Really?! I remember trying it once as a kid and thinking you couldn't pay me to drink it. LOL Of course, I haven't tried it since, so I could be biased. :)

This was fun. I can't wait to read everyone else's answers.

I enjoyed getting to know more about you, Jean. I'm glad you had such supportive parents. I have a hunch their belief in you came in handy when you embarked on your life as a writer.

Jean, I love cheesecake too. And what a beautiful house! I can almost imagine that house in one of my books! Thanks for sharing.

I'm really enjoying these Thursday posts and learning more about you all. Thanks for sharing!
Blessings, Patti Jo

p.s. Jean, when I was growing up, the name JEAN was one of my very favorite names. I thought my middle sister was so lucky, because Jean is her middle name!

Very nice to meet you Jean! I love your house. It reminds me of the one that was on the cover of my first book.

Tonic water? Really? I'm shuddering just thinking about it.

Loved learning more about you, Jean. Love the house, too. Very cool. :)
