    What a great idea!  A very fun way to learn more about your likes & dislikes.  My husband & I love playing Yahtzee.  We have a running total on our scores & it’s well into the 30,000 point range!

    Marla,

    Do you really think that astrology is Satanistic?  I had no idea people really thought that – I just that thought it was sort of fluffy little etertainment.  Is that something that your church teaches?  Just curious… never heard that before!

    I love Euchre too!  When we lived in Vegas, no one had heard of it, it’s totally a Midwestern thing.  Did you know that?  So glad to be back in the Midwest, where people are “normal!” 🙂  lol.

    West Liberty!  Really!  How cool!  Being from Springfield and going to BGSU via Rt.68,  I drove almost every weekend my jr. and sr. year of college back and forth—just because when Ron couldn’t come up, I came home to see him —my now husband of 33 (what a huge number that seems) years.  We have friends in WL.

    Hi – I’ve read your blog for awhile, but I’m not sure that I’ve commented before (maybe once?). I think I found you by clicking through other Cedarville people’s blogs. Anyway, I didn’t know you are from West Liberty! We go up to Marmon Valley Farm every year to camp with our friends who used to work there (my husband proposed to me there, too, actually). Marie’s Candies is awesome!

    I really enjoy reading your blog and look forward to reading one of your books someday soon. Thank you for putting yourself out there so honestly and challenging and encouraging your readers. I’m a NYM, but I’m looking forward to kids (not that we’re trying yet) and enjoy learning from your perspective on motherhood and family. Thanks for writing! God bless!
