Hi, I'm Ruth

I'm a pastor/administrator in Mitchell, SD. I live with my chocolate lab Hannah, my cornsnake Merlin, and my beta fish Amaranth. I started getting serious about weight loss when I almost missed out on a chance to go skydiving because of my weight.

I love my family: parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephew. I also sponsor children through Compassion International and they really are a joy in my life.

Hi, I'm Ruth

I'm a pastor/administrator in Mitchell, SD. I live with my chocolate lab Hannah, my cornsnake Merlin, and my beta fish Amaranth. I started getting serious about weight loss when I almost missed out on a chance to go skydiving because of my weight.

I love my family: parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephew. I also sponsor children through Compassion International and they really are a joy in my life.

I have strong opinions, but I love to learn more, even if that means re-thinking my earlier opinions. I go barefoot as much as possible. I love to feel the textures beneath my feet.

I love to read. I study theology, I study the Bible. I like to crochet, knit, sew, and make my own beauty products. Basically, if I can make something for less money than buying it--I will.

Thank you for the compliments on my Spark Page. The back ground picture was taken from my front yard when the weather didn't know if it was still winter (with the snow on the mountains) or Spring (with the trees in bloom).

SparkPeople are great, huh? emoticon

Hugs,
Renie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I can't do some of these yet, but I may surprise myself yet.
