I've been married to Ken Burrus, fisherman and carpenter, for 8 years. We have no children, but I have 3 nephews, David Olson, age 27, who lives in Springfield, Missouri, Alex Schlesselman, 19, who lives in Tokyo, Japan, and Paul Kinred, 17, who lives in Kansas City.
I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, went to college in Grinnell, Iowa, and seminary at St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City.
My favorite verse of Scripture... only one?? Really?
"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned...Because you are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you... Do not fear, for I am with you." Isaiah 43:1-5
No matter how great and powerful God is, He still chooses to be with us, to know each of us by name and to love us as God's precious children!
Oh, yes, and I agree with Tonya, John 3:16!
If you borrowed my car, you'd either hear WCIC FM, contemporary Christian music... or you'd hear silence because sometimes I just need to ride in the car and think and pray without any noise.
I have just completed another time of reading through the entire Bible in a year. If you've done this, you know that it is not for the faint of heart! You really need the support of a group with which you can share your questions and the celebrations of the amazing and surprising things you find there!
I also read Making a Good Move, Opening the Door to a Successful Pastorate, by Bishop Michael J. Coyner.
It would vary, depending on who it goes to, but probably a restaurant or a bookstore. But if it were for my husband it would definitely be the Bass Pro Shop!
Lori grew up in Henry, Illinois. She and her husband Dan have three school-age children: Mitch, Nick and Colby.
The whole book of Nehemiah. I love how he stands strong and encourages the people when called to do the hard stuff (building a wall around the entire city), even when others try to stop the project.
Either 80's rock or WCIC, but if the hubby last drove the car, it will be blaring NPR radio - uggghh!.
A Hole in the Gospel, by Richard Stearns
www.pluggedin.com This is a great site by Focus on the Family that does in-depth reviews of movies, video games, music, basically everything to keep a parent in the loop.
Buffalo Wild Wings or Casey's - depending on if I am craving wings or feeling practical!
Rosalie is originally from Elmwood, Illinois. Her family includes her husband Carl and their three daughters: Carra, Emily (deceased) and Hilary. Carra and her husband Tim live in San Antonio, Texas with their son Noah. Hilary lives in Cordova, Tennessee.
Psalm 118:6. When my middle daughter died suddenly in 1988, I kept repeating this verse and received "some" comfort.
Take One series by Karen Kingsbury

Tonya grew up in Deer Creek, Illinois and graduated from Dee-Mack High School in 1987. She and her husband of 14 years, Mark, have two children: daughter Tess and son Tate.
John 3:16. Pretty much sums up the whole reason why I believe that God is an awesome God and gives me hope for the future. Plus, my Sunday School class sings a cool song to that verse. It gets stuck in your head!
Depends on what mood I was in when I last drove it. I have lots of different kinds of music on my presets. I like 80’s rock, a little classical music, Christian pop, oldies, anything except country or talk radio.
Kingdom Seekers 4. Sounds like a Christian book, but is really a series of books my teenager likes to read. They are mysteries that take place in Disney World. I read them so we have something in common to talk about. They are pretty good books too!
Daniellesplace.com. A website I use to get ideas of activities to do with the youth to go with Bible stories I am teaching (especially my younger Sunday School class and Mystery Night). I believe kids learn more when they are having fun playing games, doing crafts, and other activities that have to do with the Bible, not just sitting in a study group. Learning should be hands-on.
To a restaurant. I love to go out to eat-someone cooks, serves and cleans up for you!
