If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why: 1) A great book – I love to lose myself in a fictional world. 2) My ipod – music is one of God’s greatest gifts. 3) Banana Grams – a nerdy game that’s a combination of scrabble and a crossword. It’s so much fun, competitive, creative and a great bonding game!
