Interview with the heroine from Nursing the Soldier’s Heart by Merrillee Whren


1. Brady Hewitt, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’ve had some dangerous jobs. I’ve been an army medic, an oil rig worker, and I also worked on a fishing boat off the coast of Alaska.

2. What do you do for fun?

I’ve always enjoyed playing soccer, and I’m getting the chance to teach the game to some of the kids at the Village of Hope.

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

Talking about my dad because he basically abandoned me after my mother died.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

I fear being like my dad, who let difficult times ruin his life.

5. What do you want out of life?

That’s something I’m learning. I’ve been drifting for years, but I see an opportunity to find permanence here at the Village of Hope and a chance to be near my grandmother and maybe win the heart of a pretty nurse.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Right now the most important thing is making sure my grandmother Cora has a good life in her remaining years.

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

I’ve never been much of a reader, but lately I’ve been reading books to Zach and Tyler, two boys from the children’s home at the Village of Hope. I’m enjoying these books as much as the kids.

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

I’d like to learn to trust God more and seek his guidance before I make plans.

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

I’ve never had a pet because my employment didn’t fit well with caring for a pet.

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

I’m not sure I would like to go back in time. These days I’m trying to look forward and not back. But if I have to choose a time and place, I’d go back to the oil wildcatter days in west Texas. I enjoyed my job in the oil fields, and it would be interesting to see how the early oilmen worked.
