Great Goddess Interviews: Joni Lang 08/30/2011
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? When I was little, I always wanted to be a Stewardess. It seemed so glamorous, wearing the cute little dress and serving people. I don't think you could pay me enough money to do that now, lol!
If you could pick 3 colors to surround you for the next 6 months, what would they be? Purple/Lavender, Yellow and Orange. Purple has always been my favorite color, and Yellow and Orange just seem so bright and happy, how could you not want to be surrounded by bright and happy?
What is your number 1, super-duper, never ending important goal for your life? To live my life in accordance with the teachings of my religion so that my family can be together for Eternity. My husband and I have been married for almost 29 years, and we have 4 amazing children, and 4 beautiful grandaughters and one more on the way. To me, Family is the most important thing.
What is the first thing that crosses your mind most mornings? When I first wake up in the morning, the first thing that crosses my mind is "what day is it?", and then I go over my schedule for the day and the things I want to accomplish.
Who is your favorite super-hero? My favorite super-hero is my Mom. She almost died after my little brother was born, and then she contracted Hepatits so was is and out of the hospital a lot during my childhood. She also has several other health issues including skin ulcers on both legs that will not heal. She has had them for at least the last ten years and has undergone many painful treatments to try to heal them. Through it all, she never, ever complains. She is always more concerned about others than herself, and she helps to take care of my 98 year old grandmother. I think that is one of the main reasons I have tried to learn all I can about alternative modalities of healing, so that I can help my mom.
Tell us one strange-ish fact about you... My left eye is just slightly far sighted, but my right eye is hugely near sighted. Makes for an interesting pair of glasses, only now that I am older, I have to have three pair of glasses, one for reading, one for playing the piano, and one for distance. Getting old is so exciting!
What celebrity figure has given you the most inspiration within the last year? I'm going to have to leave this one blank. I can't think of one celebrity figure that I look up to, admire, or would want to emulate.
What are you doing right now that is of service to the world? I used to volunteer at the local hospital helping to take care of the babies in the NeoNatal Intensive Care Unit. It was the best volunteer gig ever, however, as my children started having babies, I really needed to focus on helping them and being there for them. I love helping others and connecting them to people or services that they need. Right now I help people improve their health by sharing the benefits of therapeutic quality essential oils and supplements.
