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

I think most people would say it was my job. I’m an FBI agent, which means I carry a gun 24/7, always choose a restaurant seat with a view of the cash register, and tend to look at people with a jaded eye.

But I think I would say the most interesting thing is that, well, I’ve recently learned to see. Not physically, but spiritually. Yes—I once was blind but now I see. That has changed everything.

2. What do you do for fun?

Fun? What’s that? Seriously, I tend to be intense. But I’ve met this guy recently who has been challenging me to lighten up. He’s taken me kayaking by moonlight  and fishing at dawn. He surprised me with a trip to Busch Gardens, where he insisted we ride every single roller coaster—and the carousel—and eat cotton candy. And one night he showed up with an armful of Veggie Tales DVDs. We ate popcorn and watched every single one.

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

Going to the dentist. Doesn’t everybody?

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Hmm. I don’t like to admit I’m afraid of anything. But the truth is, I am terribly afraid of being alone. Alone forever, I mean, not just alone for a night. My mother left when I was a little girl. I remember crying myself to sleep night after night. And I guess that scared little girl is still inside.

5. What do you want out of life?

I want to live a life that honors God, a life of integrity, grace, and faith.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My faith. Because I lost it for a time. My faith is like the sun: it illuminates everything else—my life, my job, my relationships, my work. And by “my faith” I really mean Jesus Christ, because my own part of this is very small. I am the recipient of a level of grace I don’t deserve.

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

I read mostly Christian non-fiction. There is so much I want to learn! Right now, on my night table, I have books by Ravi Zacharias and John Piper, as well as “Not By Sight” by Jon Bloom and “One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp.

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

I wish I could relax a little more. Between my mother leaving and a divorce I didn’t want, I tend to be guarded in relationships. My job tends to exacerbate that tendency, too. David, this new guy, is trying to help me change that. I love that he cares that much about me.

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

You know, I’ve always wanted a dog, but my job just doesn’t lend itself to having a pet. I’m gone too much! But if I did have a pet, it would be a big, friendly golden retriever, the kind of slobbery kisses type of dog that is everything I’m not.

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

I would go back to the day when I was eight years old, and I would come home from school early, and beg my mother not to leave, and give her ten thousand reasons why I wanted her to stay. That’s exactly where I’d go…
