I love eating together as a family. It is one of the parts of family life that I love the most. The sharing that happens around the table has been rich and full of joy for the Crandalls.

When I was seven years old my family moved to Janesville, WI and began attending church regularly at the Milton Seventh Day Baptist church. Although I had a hard time staying awake during the sermon most weeks, I enjoyed going to church and Sabbath School and I loved to read stories from the Bible. As a kid I would read from the Bible all the time.
