Tell us why you belong to SDFRW and feel free to share any special activities and/or committees you have been involved with:
Having the opportunity to be more informed and learn about the policies and leaders that affect all of us in the community, state and country. Currently I am serving as Vice President for BCARW. I am humbled by the experience of being united by like-minded women that share the same values and morals that we will not waver from.
Last fall I attended the South Dakota Federation of Republican Women convention, I was impressed with all the speakers such as Sandy Rhoden, Becky Rasmussen, Dr. Allen Unruh, and Dr. Ben Carson. Everything we did in those 3 days was lifted up to God, and we knew that God was first and in the center of ever session.
Hobbies and other volunteer organizations:
Everything I do, I try to do for the glory of God and enjoy my time serving on various committees in my church, attending Bible Studies and serving the citizens of South Dakota through community projects.

My husband and I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We also like spending time in the Black Hills snow skiing, 4-wheeling or just driving around the hills. I love to travel the United States, I would like to visit all of the National Parks. In 2017 I was fortunate to travel to Israel, which was a life changing experience that brought the Bible to life!
Who is your favorite Republican and why?
When asked this question the first people that came to my mind where my parents, as they instilled morals, values, generosity, and the importance of referencing the Bible as my guide to life.
The characteristics of a good leader is to align themselves with principals of; strength, courage, respect, values, morals and the ability to listen to different points of view. I believe President Abraham Lincoln probably possessed these attributes. That was a different time when people held the office of the president with respect and dignity. I have to say in my life time President Trump has lifted ordinary people to a higher esteem than any other leader. He gave the working class a voice, he sacrificed his family and wealth for the good of our country. I pray that our country will recognize the sins of our nation and repent so that our Lord will forgive us and once again bless this nation.
