About NancyHeise

Hello and welcome to my user page! I am a Certified Public Accountant, a native Floridian and married mother of four children. I am a convert to the Catholic Church, following a religious experience. My husband and I have been married for 23 years and have lived in South Florida for almost 30 years. I began my fun and interesting hobby of editing Wikipedia in August 2007 with the help of a very nice wikipedian, ArielGold. I have a gallery of uploaded photos I used on Wikipedia pages at Wikimedia Commons here [1] and other photos uploaded through Wikipedia, some are shown below. As of Feb 2010 I am using a Nikon D5000, photos in my gallery previous to this date were taken with a Sony Cyber-shot. I may be reached by email through this link. Pages to which I have significantly contributed are:

Humiliations and Awards


Saint Francis of Assisi says

"What have we to be proud of? If you were so clever and learned to know everything and could speak every language so that the things of heaven were an open book to you, still you could not boast of that. Any of the devils, knew more about the things of heaven, and knows more about the things of earth, than any human being, even one who may have received from God a special revelation of the highest wisdom. If you were the most handsome and richest man in the world, and could work wonders and drive out devils, all that would be something extrinsic to you; it would not belong to you and you could not boast of it. But there is one thing of which we can all boast; we can boast of our humiliations (Cor. 12:15) and in taking up daily the holy cross of our Lord Jesus Christ."

While I have had some very nice humiliating experiences here on Wikipedia, no one gives you an award for those so I don't have a "humiliations page" to offer except for the four failed Roman Catholic Church WP:FAC's here. [2], [3], [4], [5], [6] and a recent WP:RFC brought by user:Karanacs [7]


My deceased aunt Mary says

"When someone gives you a gift, accept it graciously, as an act of love from that person. It gives them great joy to know you appreciate the gift."

On that note, some very nice Wikipedians have gifted me with some neat stars and other awards here: User:NancyHeise/Awards
