I live in a small house Watsonville, CA with my dear husband of 37 years. We have five children and eight grandchildren. My eldest son passed away in October 2014. He was 36 years old. I miss him very much, but know that he is at peace with God now.

I am a Greek Orthodox Christian and am very active in our church. I am studying Byzantine chant with a master psalti (chanter), and when he is in Greece (6 months out of the year), I am the main chanter at the church. I love chanting: the hymns are so beautiful and bring me closer to God. I also direct our choir which consists of 4 ladies and 1 gentleman. We sing a capella in the Byzantine style.

I work as a music teacher and have 28 students. My students are mostly children, but a few are now beautiful young ladies and handsome young gentlemen and I feel honored to be a part of their lives.

I enjoy cooking and baking, gardening, reading, playing the piano and guitar, singing, crocheting, and watching movies. For exercise I walk, do Jazzercise, lift free weights, and do a plethora of workout DVDs from the comfort of my own living room.

My Goals:
To become closer and closer to my God each day by living an abstinent and disciplined life. To allow God to change me into a new creature by His will, not mine. To pray for the willingness and strength to accomplish this, but only if it is God's will.

My Program:
1. Track my food each day here on SP. Plan my menu the night before.

2. Stay connected to my Higher Power, surrendering my self-will daily and asking for His help to remain abstinent and a blessing to others.
