I know that you are thinking to yourself right about now....Idaho? Well let me tell you about this place. I went to school at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and one weekend we went to Coeur d'Alene. This place was awesome. The area is surrounded by dozens of lakes left behind by the glaciers of the ice age. There are more than 55 lakes within easy driving distance of Coeur d'Alene, but none more scenic and full of activities than Lake Coeur d'Alene itself. There's something magical about Lake Coeur d'Alene that's hard to define, but it begins with the spectacular North Idaho sunsets and moonrises, the plunge of an osprey after a fish, the glowing lights of downtown Coeur d’Alene reflecting across its waters at night. You can take a flight on a water landing plane, see the lake and land on it. You can golf at one of the coolest golf courses in the world....there is a floating hole....and you have to take a boat out to it. The shops and restaurants are great fun. Idaho is more than Coeur d'Alene.

White water rafting in Idaho
From pasture to mountains it is breathtaking
Mormon Cathedral that is amazing.
Capital building in Idaho
It is Boise and wilderness, white water rafting and potato farmers. It is nature at its finest, gorgeous Mormon cathedrals and small clap board churches that seem to be remnants of days gone by. It is small towns lost in time. Believe me it is glorious. If you get a chance to tour Idaho go for it.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
