Hi, I'm Ruth

I'm a pastor/administrator in Joliet, IL. I live with my chocolate lab Hannah and my cornsnake Merlin. 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 Joliet, IL. I live with my chocolate lab Hannah and my cornsnake Merlin. 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.
