I enjoy talking and sharing with people. I was born in China of Christian missionary parents and spent a few years in Taiwan growing up. I taught music 39 years in public elementary and junior high schools in New Jersey, Germany, New York City and Hamden, CT. We came to New Haven in 1973 for my husband to get a masters in Music from Yale University.
I am a believing follower of Jesus and am involved in the community of my church, Trinity Baptist. I emjoy entertaining and teaching women in a Creative Living Bible Study each week. I enjoy reading books, especially scripture, and love to discuss the deeper issues of life.
If you stay with me, we'll enjoy sharing our "journey" together or you can be anonymous too. Either way, I look forward to having you with us. Warm Regards, Elizabeth
