1. What is on your bedside table?
answer: Um you got my $16 lamp from Target, my Ipod dock, my thermometer that tells me how hot/cold my room is not to see if I have a fever, my phone charger, phone, ear buds, book light, flash cards for last weeks English test which I never used to study, meter, some kind of edible thing for midnight lows, and a gum wrapper which is weird cuz I don't eat gum.
2.What are some of the books that have most impacted you?
answer: In 7th grade I got to meet Ben Michaelson in person. He wrote an amazing book called Spirit Bear. He also wrote a book called Tree Girl. I got a hold of Tree Girl and read it in like 2.7 seconds. I got so into that I would start sobbing randomly when I flipped the page. I remember my brother coming into my room to tell me it was time for dinner and running away because I was crying. I was so attached to the characters every word like tugged at my heart. It was an amazing book and I recommend it to everyone! I also loved the book Night by Elie Wiesel. It was a hard book to read because of all the detail, but it opened my eyes to see how lucky I am to be alive and blessed. I also got to meet him briefly as well. It was truely a humbling experience. After I read this book I had the privilage to go to the Holocaust museum in D.C. I still remember going through and thinking back to everything he said when he came to my school. It really did touch my heart.

answer: When I was 12 I had the honor of meeting this amazing person. I was at a church event playing tag with a few other kids. As I was running away I almost knocked the poor man over. I said I was sorry hoping he wouldn't get mad at me for running like I was not supposed to. Instead he asked if I knew what my name meant. I said I had no idea and proceeded to walk away. All week I wondered about what he had asked me. I found him the next week to ask him, but before he had a chance he said "it means set apart for God's purpose." I smiled. He introduced himself and we became best friends. His name was Pastor Mitch Prifogle. He changed my life. He was always smiling and willing to listen when ever I needed an ear. Until two Octobers ago in 2008. He became very sick and was put on bed rest. I begged people to take me to see him, but no one could ever find "time" to take me to see him. He past away that April 2009. I never got a chance to say goodbye or how much he meant and still means to me. I think about him all the time and know he's watching over me. I love him more than words can describe and will miss him forever.
