I have never been a patient person. When I played football at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, one of my coaches referred to me as a “microwave kid.” I wanted everything to happen now. I have a hard time waiting, and it often fills me with a paralyzing anxiety. At times, I am waiting […]

My husband has a gift of remembering names and faces. He can often even recall where he met someone and through whom he met them. It’s a superpower that I do not possess.
