(By Jan Cink)
My mother deserves a medal for her role in raising 9 children. She taught by example: hard work, prayer, and good deeds. Her on going prayer for her children is that they have high moral standards -- no small task in today’s world. The dividends of her fervent example and guidance are evident many times over in her children’s spouses, their children, and friends. And... after the joys, headaches, and heartaches of putting her own 9 children on such good footing she and my dad hosted a foreign exchange student!

My mother-in-law is a great mentor and role model. I admire the way she maintains her composure and uses incredibly good sense to handle even the most perplexing situations. Her spiritual strength has been an inspiration to many. Above all, she is unselfish, spreading love and good cheer wherever she goes. Her great sense of humor and contagious laughter are admired by everyone she meets.
