Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in one God, who has revealed Himself through the Bible, which is his holy and inerrant word.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I have never held or sought political office before, which I see as a definite qualifier! As both a mother of five and a homemaker, as well as the Vice President of me and my husband's oil and gas business, I have a wide range of life experiences which have prepared me to go to Austin and make a difference while still being firmly grounded in real Texas.
