Interview with the hero for A Forever Christmas by Missy Tippens:

1. Gregory, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I’ve always known what I wanted to do with my life—own my own business. I started my landscaping and lawn maintenance business right out of high school and have done pretty well for myself.

2. What do you do for fun?
Fun? Well, I have to admit I’m a workaholic. But I’m learning to spend more time with my kids. And I’ve always enjoyed Sunday dinners at my dad’s house.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Easy. The laundry. Always hated doing it. Always will.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?
Of having someone think I’m not good enough.

5. What do you want out of life?
I want my boys to be happy and healthy and to have everything they need. I’d also like to provide some of the extras. And, I admit, I’m starting to think some about dating again. I’m not really ready, but my family keeps telling me it’s time.

6. What is the most important thing to you?
Being a good provider.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?
I don’t really read, other than some non-fiction books and magazines on landscaping and plant care.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I made some big mistakes in high school. If I could do it all over again—and still have my sons—I would go back and make better decisions. I’d also give myself confidence at a younger age (which would probably fix the problem with bad decisions).

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
No pets. Just two very active little boys! 😉

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
Like I said above, I’d like to go back to high school with more confidence, and would fight for Sarah, the only woman I’ve truly loved. I wouldn’t let her father manipulate me if I had a re-do.


  1. Oh, I love Love inspired books. Romance and Christmas just seem to go hand in hand; outside of Valentine's Day.

  18. Raspberrygirl, I'm cracking up!! That is so much like something I would do. I get online all the time to do one thing–just one little thing! And then an hour later, I'll sign off, close the laptop, then realize I didn't do that one little thing.

    So know you're in good company. 🙂
