Creating a Great Day is excited to announce a new contributor to the team!
Tracy Watts is a stay-at-home mom to an active toddler and has been married for six years. She enjoys working with her husband in ministry as he preaches for a congregation in Oklahoma. Read on to learn more about Tracy and help us welcome her!
1. What is your favorite Bible verse?
1 Samuel 1:27 “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him.”
2. Who is the most relatable Bible character to you and why?
David, because he is so passionate and energetic and yet so very human. He makes mistakes, time after time, even after incredible acts of bravery and faith. He gives me comfort that God will forgive my sins, just as He forgave David’s. But he also brings me hope that God can use me as powerfully as He used David.
3. What is your favorite go-to easy meal?
Taco Bell? Ok, just kidding! The Pioneer Woman’s seven can soup! You can find it here:
4. What are your hobbies?
When I’m not playing with my son (or watching him run around and play), I love to read, write, and craft. I like to sew as well as make homemade cards. I also enjoy gardening. There’s nothing quite as therapeutic to feel God’s warm sunshine on your back, as you feel His created earth in your fingers.
5. What is your favorite T.V. show or movie?
The Emperor’s New Groove – I still watch it and giggle!
6. What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
I love to be outside! Sitting in the sunshine and reading, going for a walk in a beautiful park, planting flowers–I just enjoy being out-of-doors (except perhaps during the dog days of summer!)
7. Who is your role model?
My dad. He is one of the most godly, selfless, and thoughtful people I know. He has always been a rock for me and an earthly example of what my heavenly Father’s love looks like.
8. Would you rather vacation at a mountain cabin or a beach house?
Which one is free? I’ll take that one!
All right… 9 times out of 10, I would say mountain cabin. But I might make an exception if we were going to Virginia Beach in June. It’s just the right amount of warm without being muggy or nasty.
9. What is the best thing about yourself?
I’m really passionate and good with kids. It’s why I became an elementary school teacher, and it’s why I decided to stay home with my son when I had him. I just really love kids and enjoy being around them –more than adults some of the time, actually!
10. What is one of your favorite books and/or what are you reading right now?
My favorite book: the Bible.
However, I feel like that is a cop-out answer. I am a big reader and LOVE books. I love the smell, the feel, the way they whisk you away to another world entirely. Right now, some of my favorites are
*The Chronicles of Narnia
*Anything by Jane Austen
*Growing Kids God’s Way (for my “practical” good-for-me read!).
And now you know a little more about me!
