Introducing Gayly

Where do you live?
I live in a small town in rural Kansas.
Do you have any hidden talents?
Hidden talents... hmmm.... I can bake awesome sourdough cinnamon rolls. We did a fund raiser last year when my hubby was raising money for his charity team for the Marine Corp Marathon and we sold 80 dozen in 3 days:)

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at.
I enjoy photography and baking. I am also pretty easy going and having a house full of kids, adding a few extra never bothers me!

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at.
Swimming for sure and keeping the inside of my mini van spotless all the time.

Do you have any siblings? What are they like?
I have an older sister and a younger brother. My sister is mom of 4 and has her PhD in Agriculture. She teaches for a couple of colleges online. She is very broght and does a great job when all our kids are together coming up with things for them all to do.
My brother is an awesome uncle to my kids, they adore him. Not only is my brother but he's a great friends as well!

Have you ever won a trophy?
In public speaking when I was in high school.

Name one thing that not many people know about you.
I am training for my 1st 1/2 marathon next month!

What is your earliest memory?
Pulling my babysitter's son's motorcycle on top of myself when I was about 3.

What was your favorite musical group when you were in Junior High?
Starship- I remembering doing a cheerleading routine to "We Built this City."

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A missionary

What are you passionate about?
My faith and sharing it with other, this ties into my passions for orphans and orphan care.

Who is the person you respect the most, and why?
Hannah from the Bible. She wanted a child so badly and when God granted her a son, she only raised him for a short while before she took him to the temple to serve the Lord as she promised.

What outdoor activities do you like to do?
Photography, biking, playing with my kids, hiking in the mountains

If your house was on fire and you could grab only 3 things before leaving, what would they be?
My Bible, my computer (all our pictures are on it) and my wedding ring (hopefully it would already be on my finger and I am assuming that my husband and children are already out of the house!)

Which is your most favorite place on this earth?
I love to be with my family, so where they are I love! But when it comes to places I have been and love... I love the mountains in spring time, evenings on the beach and China as it is the birth place of 2 of my children.

Bring some of those rolls to the race! Oh and your first race, well I don't know if you will consider the route hilly or not! Now I have We Built this City stuck in my head. Nice to 'meet' you!

I ran my first 1/2 marathon 2 years ago and it lead to running a full marathon! You're going to love it. Nothing compares to that feeling you get when you cross the finish line. You go girl!
