  1. Heather

    I am a homebody too and a bit contradictory myself. I think you and I would get along great! Congrats on publishing your first book! What an accomplishment!

    1. Jacqui (Post author)

      I’m always up for a new friend! Thank you. I’m pretty excited. Now I just have to get moving on my second book!

  2. Stephanie Jeannot

    I believe in precognition. You must have lost a ton of weight to be proud to see your ankles. Nice facts. Congrats on graduating and pursuing an education.

      I was talking to a numerologist and card reader. Told her about a month before my dad died, my then husband, brother, sister and I were talking about a funeral. When my dad died, we were in the same room, discussing the same thing. Scared the heck out of me. She was the one who said that I was probably a precog, but, I never nourished it. Said it’s never too late! Most of the weight was water gain! LOL. I gained 50 lbs with her. She was born on 12/12 and on 12/24 I saw my bones. I screamed I was so thrilled! LOL

  3. Pam

    I have the traveling bug myself. I’d love to tour the country in an RV. I did it once with my extended family in 1989 and it was horrible. This time would be better. 🙂

    1. Jacqui (Post author)

      I’ve never done it! I’ve driven to FL, ME and AR, but, I cannot wait until I’m able to just hit the road and go. I know I’m not a spring chicken anymore, but, want to do it before it’s too late.

  4. Jenn

    What a fun idea. I should write one of these and connect it to my about page so folks get to know me better. We have quite a few things in common. I am also a homebody, loyal, a good secret keeper and afraid for our country too.

  5. Dana

    I would love to travel across country in an RV! I hope you write about it so I can follow your travels!

    1. Jacqui (Post author)

      It will be a few years still. I have to wait until my daughter graduates. But, I will definitely be writing about it!

  6. Donna Ward

    Well, this was a different and fun post to read- and brave, unique, and indepth – congratulations on your books! And all that you’ve found in your life – I am aware that you do need to pay attention to your talents and gifts – being a precog is like playing the piano – you become stronger the more attention you pay to it – it will always be there 🙂

    Congrats on publishing your books. What an accomplishment. I am also a homebody.

    1. Jacqui (Post author)

      Krystal, do you have a Don Pablo’s near you? Their Queso is to die for! Absolutely LOVE it!

  12. The Trophy WifeStyle

    Nice to learn more about you!!! Gotta admit I’m afraid for our country too!!! So scary who we have to choose from for president!!!

  13. Sky Fisher

    Would love to hear more about your thoughts on reincarnation! Being a full-time RVer would be so fantastic!
