Dina enjoys coffee and babies.  She also enjoys being outdoors.  Most days you can find her splitting wood and fixing her car.
Usually, in her Elmer Fudd hat.  Relaxing evenings for her consist of taking screaming babies and soothing them into a deep sleep.
While brewing coffee, cleaning up after a house full of boys, and making dinner.  All with one hand.  She is truly a ninja.
Dina can always be found with a smile on her face.  She deeply loves Jesus and loves being apart of helping people grow deeper in
their relationship with Him.
