Religious Liberty

Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Disagree

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

We must also dismantle the bureaucratic laws, which restrict the supply of critical healthcare facilities, equipment, and even procedures, which would ultimately lower healthcare coverage and make it more affordable, therefore accessible.

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Biblical values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Strongly Disagree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

Free speech is under attack on public university and college campuses.

Strongly Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Agree

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Power is held by the people and their elected officials, not a monarch. Sovereignty is held by the people.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus is my Lord and Savior and died on the cross that I might be forgiven of my sins and have eternal life. I have been born again (salvation) and have a deep personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which is a gift of grace and not of anything I have ever done or every will do. I believe that God should be placed first in my life, followed by my family and others.


Qualifications

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I believe that my social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) validate my beliefs publicly.

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

I have degrees and experience in the medical and education fields. My husband and I manage a small family cattle farm with my brother and I was raised on a farm, which allows me to understand a bit about agriculture. All of these areas have required balancing small to million dollar budgets. But more than this, I have a deep rooted love in my community, state and country, based on Christian values which include common sense and God's Word for guidance.

I will always seek the advice of experts in all areas of life where decisions have to be made, and not be so concerned with lobbyist and special interests. All of the decisions will be bathed in prayer.
