The Last Word—Melissa Willis

Melissa Willis
MS Clinical Mental Health, Santa Rosa Counseling Center, LLC

What is your chief characteristic?
I’ve prayed for wisdom since I was a very young girl. I wouldn’t say I’ve perfected it, but I do strive for balance and understanding.

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
My friends unconditionally love me. There is never a dull moment around them.

Who is your favorite fiction character?
I never forgot my favorite childhood show, “The Gummi Bears.” Those little bears were always happy, energetic, and loved to help people.

Who is your favorite non-fiction character?
Of course, I’d go with Jesus. He came to bring the good news, show us how to live our lives, and to die for our sins. What more could I want?

What is the best thing you have ever won?
In my band geek days, I won best smile. I remember my prize was a denture cleaning brush.

What did your mother always tell you?
“Be kind and mind.”

What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
Anytime I watch paid programming with my phone and purse nearby

What is your favorite food?
It’s really a toss-up between BBQ and sushi.

Which talent would you most like to have?
I would love to be a naturally great cook. This was one blessing that skipped me.

What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
“The Notebook” never gets old. I watch it when I need a good cry.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Anytime I sit down too fast while wearing a skirt. Any woman knows that thighs can also double for trapped air flaps.

What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
The same as my six-year-old’s favorite show, “Sponge Bob Square Pants”

What is the last book you read?
I’m reading two books now. One is called “The Love Dare,” and I would recommend it to anyone in a marriage or committed relationship. The other is “Bringing Up Girls.” It’s a great guide for anyone who wants to raise their daughter into a healthy-minded woman.  It’s also a great reminder of what it means to be a lady and how to make sure you are treated like one.

What is your theme song?
“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. It’s a song that reminds us that home is not a place–It’s the feeling of being with the ones you love most.
