Meet Diane Moran, Carmel Resident.
Why do you like living in Carmel? I believe it would be possible, by God’s grace, to be thankful, satisfied, and content to live anywhere in the world the Lord chose, and I am thankful to the Lord that we live in Carmel. Carmel, along with its many commendable surrounding communities, has hard-working neighbors who maintain the beauty of their properties, who make an effort to know each other, and who are helpful and law-abiding. Carmel has two distinctive things that are a special treat for me: 1) smooth roads with roundabouts and 2) Flowing Well Park with its scenic trails and delicious drinking water.
What is your favorite restaurant around Carmel, and what is your favorite dish there? Carmel and the surrounding areas have so many fine clean, tasty restaurants with hard-working owners and employees who strive for excellence that I would look forward with anticipation to dining at any one of them.
What is your favorite movie of all time, or one you have seen recently that you would recommend? The 180 Movie portrays heroism. It is a 33-minute documentary free online at www.180movie.com.
What is your favorite book? I have feasted on the Bible for thirty years. Many good translations are available to read or listen to at www.Biblegateway.com.
What is your favorite style of music and artist? To God be the glory that He has inspired His children to write, perform, and record many inspired pieces of music, both hymns and Contemporary Christian.
Where would your dream vacation be, and why? I have refreshing mini-vacations almost every day, when I regularly spend time reading my Bible and soaking in the awesome presence of the Lord. “In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forever.” (Psalm 16:11) I take an entire day’s vacation once a week, when I gather with my Christian brothers and sisters at a local church in the morning to sing, network about what we see God doing in our lives, pray together, and listen to His Word.
