What is your name, and how long have you been a member at First Central?
Yvette Polinsky.  I grew up in the church but was not an official member.  My family moved from Omaha in 1978; I moved back in 1989.  I attended church when I came back, married in the church, and had my son baptized.

Seeing a task come to completion and watching the faces of others.

How does church, faith, or spirituality assist you with your work?
I always have anthems or hymns in my head all week long–sense of peace and way to calm down.

We are to be kind to others.  We are to be good to ourselves.  When the two are in sync, things are just better.
