Interview with the heroine from Mind Over Madi by Lynda Schab:

1. Madi, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

Hmmm. I would say the most interesting thing about me is that I’m not all that interesting. 

2.  What do you do for fun?

Play computer games (like Solitaire) but it’s become an addiction. I’ve been thinking of looking for a Solitaire Addicts Anonymous group. 

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Pretty much everything. Laundry, going through the mail, dealing with my issues. I’ve really been working on the issues thing, though. I’m learning through my counselor that dealing with things right away instead of sweeping them under the rug is the healthier way. 

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Spiders. Definitely.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I would love to experience total peace, in the midst of all chaos. My family makes this very challenging for me, but I’m determined to get there.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

For my kids to have a real relationship with Jesus Christ. To really know Him personally and not make the same mistakes I have. Which are plenty, I might add.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I do like to read. It’s a great escape for me. My favorite genres would have to be romance and mystery.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Oh, boy. Is “everything” one thing? I have a lot to work on. If I could change one thing, it would probably be my love for Edy’s Dibs. Not great for the waist line.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

Charlie is our cat. He’s named after Charlie Chaplin, the great silent movie actor, because he never makes a sound- not even a hiss. We suspect he’s really a dog that’s rolled around in a pile of fur and grew a long, skinny tail, because he greets us at the door, tail wagging. He’s a part of our family, even if he does spend most of his time behind the grandfather clock.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I would probably go back to when my mother was a little girl. To say my mom has issues is a major understatement. I’d love to see just what made her who she is today.


  1. A wonderful interview thank you!!

  2. I forgot my email.


  3. Thanks for hosting me, Margaret. Good luck to everyone who enters these wonderful giveaways!

  4. I can’t wait to read Mind Over Madi!

  5. Looking forward to reading this book. It has been who-wonderful to spend time with Linda at church along side her friend Diane who co-wrote the script as I help with behind the scenes stuff. Wonder if Mind over Madi will be made into a movie??

    • LoL, Carrie…I can only dream, right?

      To clarify, Carrie is talking about our church’s Christmas production, How Christmas Saved the Grinch. It’s been so fun and such an honor to be a part of this “who-wonderful” event! Can’t wait to see what God will do! Thanks, Mary, Carrie, and Laury for entering the giveaway for Mind over Madi. Good luck!

  6. Interesting interview I’d like know more about this Madi gal.


  7. Love the candid and openness of Madi. It would be great to get to know her better, reading the book. Hint. : )

  8. GREAT interview! I’ve been waiting to “meet” Madi for over 15 years!! 😀

  9. We have a cat that behaves the same way! His name is Deacon and we are his “staff”. Crazy critter!
