SHOW QUOTES

It’s such a wonderful blessing to be active, alive and able to contribute.

Not only do we get an opportunity to love on our neighbors, but we get to keep our community beautiful. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Just give it a try. Start somewhere. Go for it.

It’s such a wonderful feeling after you’ve been involved and been able to make a difference for someone else. You’ll want to do it again.

There are a lot of people who have great ideas, great hearts and don’t know where to go or what to do. Go to the city leaders, find people with the same mindset, people who are already involved and have a heart for service. Those are the people you go to.

I believe in the power of prayer.  First and foremost, I want the Lord’s blessing on whatever it is, that He’ll open the doors that I need and that I would be wise enough to be listening and take His lead on that.

I have learned through the years that if the good Lord calls you to do something, He is going to enable you to do that, and put the right people in your path, and surround you with people who will encourage you.

People who don’t know what pickleball is, I’m sad for them. Pickleball is my passion.

I love meeting new people and making new friends. Now I have my real family, I have my city family, I have my church family and I have my pickleball family.

The heart says so much; it shows love, expressions of kindness, and unity. It just brings a smile to your face, thinking of hearts.
