Molly JoLynn Brewer personal cultUre

I grew up in Kansas as an all American girl. I am proud that I was raised in America. My family has been here for generations. I lived in Payola, Kansas until I the summer before 2nd grade when I moved to Independence, Kansas.

Family

I was raised in a Christian home by my two parents. Growing up I had two older brothers: Rusty who is 4 years older than me and Cory who is just a year older than me. After both of my older brothers moved out of my parents house when I was 18, my parents had the opportunity of fostering 4 kids. These 4 kids, Zane, Zeke, Kammer, and Heartlei have become a part of the family.

Daddy-daughter tea parties

Growing up my cousin and I had tea parties with our dads. We got to dress up fancy and go on a date. We were taught how we should be treated by guys. This was a big part of who I am because it taught me how to act like a lady.

K-State for life

My dad graduated with his masters in Agriculture Education. He has worked in a school system my entire life. When we moved to Independence, Kansas my dad became the superintendent at a small private school. I decided I wanted to be a teacher in 6th grade and knew that Kansas State University was the place for me.

Holidays in my family

Holidays were a major celebration in my family growing up. Christmas was a major holiday in our family. One of my favorite Christmas traditions was sleeping by the tree on Christmas Eve then the next morning we would read the Christmas story in Luke 2. On Halloween my siblings would dress as a group then visit all our families that lived around us. For Easter, my extended family would meet up at my great grandmothers house and search for Easter eggs in her front lawn. These are a few of my favorite holiday traditions.

Reading has always been a big part of my life. I loved books growing up and still do. My parents would read stories to me often and my siblings and I also listened to Adventures in Odessey almost every night. My favorite series were the "Boxcar Children" and the "Sweet Valley Twins".
