What is your biggest dream?

To never have to worry about $$ ever again

What is your biggest success thus far?

Getting my bachelor in early childhood education

What is your ideal job?

I love being a sahm but one day I will be a preschool teacher

What was the most important thing you learnt from your parents?

Dad told me never to credit card Im pleased I never have had had one

What do you look for most in a friend?

loyalty, support, caring

What is your philosophy of life?

Life is a journey where there is always something to learn

Whats your biggest fear?


Whats your biggest joy?

Being loved by my boys all 3 of them (Muzz, Billy and Daniel)

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

A honest, loving Christian

How would someone else describe you?

When I was at school I was always described as being honest

How do you measure beauty?

Beauty comes from within

How important is your family to you?


Do you believe in regrets?

No. When I have made mistakes I have always learned from them

Do you believe in second chances? Why? Why not?

Depends how destructive the person hurt you. Sometimes one has to put a barrier up to look after themselves. Some people are abusive or unpredictable and they could hurt you again as badly as the first time

Do you believe in love at first sight?

maybe but in order to be sure the person has to have a good personality

Do you believe that true love lasts forever and conquers all?

I hope so. I feel I have found true love (in Muzz) one that I do hope lasts forever. I hope that together we can work through any problems that may occur.

Are you trustworthy? How do you show it?

I keep loyalties. I am honest, reliable and responsible. I always have been.

Are you independent? Or still dependent on someone?

I am independent. It took me years to get to this point. I had a mother whom wouldnt cut the aprons strings

Are you willing to change for someone else?

Muzz and God love me the way I am. They are all that matter. Others can take me or leave me. I am me.

If you could leave one life lesson behind to the younger generation, what would it be?

Life is full of experiences that later we realised we gained important lessons from and in order to learn from our mistakes we have to able make them. I truely believe that if we are sheltered by our parents after we leave home for the first time we dont have that freedom to learn. There are many mistakes if we have to make to be able to grow.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?

my scratching problem

If you could have anything in this world, what would it be and why?

enough $$ so I wouldnt have to worry about being short all the time

I f you could change one thing about your family what would it be?

I dont believe any one can change anyone else. We can nurture, care and pray for our kids the best way we know how they however end up the way they do. Eventually they come to an age where they have to be who they really are and we have to let them be them.

If you had everything you wanted, would you be happy?

I am quite content now. I could be less stressed if I was financially secure.

    Praying, Jen…I know what it’s like to be flooded, thankfully we never lost our home to floods though it was all around us and threatening to wash us away. Thank God for His protection, and I’ll be praying for Taranaki.

    PS, enjoyed the meme!

  5. Erin

    I love this, Jen. Great post.

    Hi Jen, A few years ago the lower North Island was hit by extensive flooding. Many lost cattle sheep and property of various kinds. We received the usual news of the losses. One man lost everything but lamented only one thing. His family bible used for family worship although he was now alone. He graciously said as Job did. The Lord gives and Lord takes away, Blessed be the name of the Lord. Several days later his Bible was found floating on a raft of logs washed down stream. No damage to the pages as the clasps were still secure and held the Bible pages tightly closed. He was able to give thanks publicly for this and was joyful to the Lord for his great goodness. Yes we should pray that they may all see God’s hand in all things.

    Hello Jen, so nice to hear from you again. Will continue to pray for the people of Taranaki.

    This is a great meme and again, I learned so much about you from this one. I agree: We always learn from the mistakes we made. No point regretting them.

    Keep well, my friend!
