Chung Lao: Pick one word that describes you.
Friendly.... I love going places and meeting new people.
Love hearing peoples stories.
Chung Lao: Where did you grow up?
For about 16 years I grew up in the city of Chicago. Not so
great area, but not complete ghetto :-)
Then we moved to a suburb right out of Chicago. City girl at
Chung Lao: Chicago
vs Pennsylvania (where you currently live), let’s hear it!
See not so fair! Lots of people who I have to see every
weekend read this...j/k.
They are both great places. I do miss the city of Chicago. I
got to a point where someone could ask how to get somewhere
and I knew the shortcuts to get there. Then I moved here and
I didn't know any thing...what's a 'jug handle' anyway! :-)
But the people here are amazing. They have welcomed me with
So I may sometimes miss my peoples in Chicago (Go Cubs!),
but this is my home.
Chung Lao: What do you think of IndaPhatFarm.com?
I love it!. I enjoy reading the inspirational columns. I
love the pics and videos. You are doing a great job Chris!
Chung Lao: It’s come to my attention that you once created your own exercise
video and had some interesting results afterwards. Please
elaborate for us!
Ha Ha Ha! I am going to kill who ever told you!
Alright, so here it goes. My mom would have these phases
where she would work out on the treadmill for a few weeks.
During one of the revivals in Chicago, a gym teacher from
Ohio stayed at our house. She was describing some warm ups
you should do before running. My mom asked her to
demonstrate so she could record and follow along later. The
sister asked me to join so she would not be doing it alone.
In the middle of doing these weird knee bends, my knee
popped, twisted, collapsed.
The gross part is we got it on
video. It sounded like i banged into a table, but i was not
near one. Of course we replayed it to get a sense of what
happened, and to this day they torture me with that video.
They call me into the room and play just that part. It is so
Chung Lao: Name your favorites:
A. Food(s): Fish Curry, the yellow yogurt that
goes on the rice, pizza, and
Jibaritos (steak sandwich on plantains).
B. Car(s): Not a huge car fan. So basically
anything that drives, except for
big... older people cars. But
I do love SUV's!
C. Hobbies: I like reading, volleyball,
baseball, and movies.
D. Countries to visit, re-visit: Ireland- want
to see those beautiful green
valley's and maybe some hobbit holes :-)
E. Sports Team:
The UntouchaBulls! CUBS.
F. Book(s): The book that never loses it's power...the
Chronicles of the Kings ( a Lynn Austin
series, the best series I
have ever read.) My Utmost for His
G. Bible Passage(s): Philippians1:6.
And I am certain that God, who began
good work within you, will continue his work
until it is finally finished on
the day when Christ Jesus returns.
What job could you absolutely not do?
A behind a desk, never seeing anyone, kind of a
job. I am a people person. I have to be able to socialize,
sometime during the eight hours (preferably all eight
Chung Lao: What is your take on George W? How will he be
I have to give credit to the man. He is hounded
so much. If it were me I would have quit and gone into hiding. He took on a responsibility and whether
we agree with all of it or not, he is taking care of business.
How will he be remembered....As the president who
declared a very controversial war.
Chung Lao: What do you want people to remember most about your mother,
She was an amazing women, wife, and mother. She had an
awesome relationship with Christ. She was constantly talking
to God. I can still remember all the times i would say
“What?” because i heard her say something, and then realize
she was praying . She really loved my Dad. You could see
that her desire was to be a blessing to her husband. She
loved her children. My mother sacrificed for her family. She
was someone you could talk to. I always loved that about my
mom. Even when we upset her, she still remained
approachable. She was fun to be with.
Chung Lao: What have you learned from your father, Josue, Jonathan & Jeremy,
My Dad - has such a real relationship with God. He has this
longing to know who God is. I love that, and wish I was more
Josh - is understanding. He will defend someone even if they
are not exactly right. He tries to see where they are coming
from. He tries to find the positive when you're dwelling on
Jonathan - Is real. He does not put on an act. He is who he
Jeremy - Is a good listener. He takes the time to listen and
can be trusted.
Chung Lao: Name someone you admire and why?
Oh! No doubt about it, My Mother. She allowed God to use her
however he pleased. She touched so many lives by doing so.
Chung Lao: Using nothing but Microsoft Paint, please draw us a picture.
Chung Lao: Let’s hear about those skills in the kitchen.
Skills...what skills?! I learn as I go. I wish I had paid
attention to my mamma, but instead I played with the boys.
But Dave is great, so he is teaching me a few things.
Chung Lao: What have you learned from being a wife?
Never knew something so wonderful could be so hard :-)
Nah...j/k I love it. It's amazing to have a best friend for
Chung Lao: What have you learned from being a parent?
Patience, patience, and more patience. Caleb is one of the
coolest kids, and I'm not just saying that cause he's my
baby :-), but kids are a lot of work. But lot's of fun!!
Chung Lao: What have you learned from the word What?
My husband likes to say it when he's trying to act
innocent....”What! oh i didn't hear you say not to eat that
Chung Lao: What happened to the Chicago UntouchaBULLS at the 2007 BSC, and
what do you expect from them in 2008?
We were short a few men. As good as my dear husband is, it
just wasn't enough :-) We were missing Manny's best game
(messed up ankle), Joey (he's getting married), and David H
(ummm...not sure why he didn't come).
2008 belongs to the UntouchaBulls. I mean even with them
missing great players they made it to the championship. So
we'll be back!
Chung Lao: What is something you cannot stand in a person?
Judgement. It's just not right to try and decide how a
person is without giving them a chance to show you.
Chung Lao: What is the most important thing in life?
To love the Lord with all your heart. If you do, it won't be
so difficult to follow him.
Chung Lao: Describe the ideal church, even if its not realistic.
When you enter, everyone there has their hands lifted
high, and every heart is worshiping God. Every tongue,
every race gathered together for one reason. To give glory
to the one who is worthy.
Chung Lao: Are we living in the End Times?
Yes! Bible says so, can't argue with that.
Chung Lao: Ok, you board a flight to Chicago to visit
the family. You get situated in seat 21F, a window seat.
As people board, you’re feeling pretty good as no one is
sitting in your aisle. Maybe you’ll have the other seats
all to yourself. At the last minute, a passenger boards,
heads down the aisle and sits next to you, along with his
infant son. You glance over and say “Hello” and are struck
by how familiar this person looks. It’s….eerie. What’s
even more eerie is that this person is staring at you, and
tears are flowing down his cheeks.
He slowly reaches into his wallet, and hands you
his passport. You look at the expiration date, and it’s
says January 25, 2031. Very strange.
The name on the passport is……….Caleb Kuruvilla.
What do you do?
“Before we catch up, answer
me this one question...Does Kate end up with Jack or
Chung Lao: Lastly, leave us with a parting thought.
In the end the only thing that is important is that you Love
God and do his will. As I've learned, and I'm sure many
others have, it's always better than our own.
