About Me


I want to experience as much as I can. I want to bring a moment of happiness to others.


I love God. I try to love other people as well as I can. I smile alot. I am happy about small things and the big things blow me away. I try to be content with any circumstance. I am blessed. The greatest joy on earth is feeling connected to other people.


Love the Lord God with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my mind. Love others as I love myself. Be a servant.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am brand new to couch surfing but I love the concept. I first heard about this movement from my daughter. I definitely have a couch (a bed really) for anyone that wants to stay in Caledonia, Michigan.


None yet! But, my daughter has couch surfed with at least two hosts. Maybe that doesn't count.


I like to read. I like quiet time. I like to walk and see. I like to taste new food. I like to drink coffee and talk.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love books and I love movies. Any live music is sublime.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Through a translator, I preached the gospel of Jesus to an entire village in India. There were about 100-150 people in a cirlce around me. They were eager to hear what I had to say. It was a unique joy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will share once I know something!
