I wasn't ever interested in marrying someone else's career or bank account.
People were referring to me as the new Anita Bryant. Anita would get a little jealous.
Our culture is in moral chaos. On TV we celebrate freaks instead of honest, decent people.
We're imperfect people trapped in an imperfect world until we get to that place beyond.
It's no secret that I love to talk, but the real secret is I love to listen, too.
Why do I pray? Because I never know what's going to pop out of my mouth.
I was told all my life I was part Cherokee. Then it was Crow. The latest is Blackfoot.
We heard stories about fakery and decoys at revivals. I never personally saw any trickery.
I hate politics, hate deals, and deal-making, hate meeting with attorneys and agents.
There was no way we'd ever get spoiled. Daddy made sure to instill in us a work ethic.
If I could learn to treat triumph and disaster the same, then I would find bliss.
For every sleazeball in the business there are plenty of decent and wonderful people.
When I was almost 13 I was ripe for religion. I was actually just plain ripe.
