I am a Christian, married 32 years to my high school sweetheart, and mother of 9 children. I homeschool and love it! My children range in age from 29 down to 9 years – 6 boys and 3 girls. God has blessed me enormously with the gifts of a godly husband and my children, who are each special and unique in their own separate ways!
My interests include: reading, nature, children, scrapbooking, rubber stamping, cross-stitch, quilting, French country decorating, anything prairie or pioneer related, and children’s books (especially old ones).
Oh, and don’t forget gingham! Anyone in my family can attest to my love for gingham – especially red or blue!
Some of my favorite books are: the Bible, Little House series, Elm Creek Quilts series, A Full Quiver, Mitford series, Pocketful of Pinecones, Love Comes Softly series, Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening Devotional, Kay Arthur Bible studies.
Some of my favorite movies are: Little Women, The Egg and I (in the spring!), By the Light of the Silvery Moon (in the fall!), the Long, Long Trailer (in the summer!), It’s a Wonderful Life (only allowed at Christmas!), Pride and Prejudice, Love Comes Softly Series, The Easy Way (Cary Grant and Betsy Drake), Cheaper By the Dozen.
My favorite book of the Bible is Matthew. Some of my Bible heroes are Peter, Paul, David, Mary, and Job. One of my favorite Bible verses is: “Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10.
I live in a rural area on 2 1/2 acres in a small neighborhood surrounded by corn and hay fields. After living in the suburbs my entire life, I am so thankful that God saw fit to move me out to my dream setting, surrounded by His beautiful creation. One of my favorite past times is to sit on my front porch and watch the trees, listen to the birds, and drink in the sweet smell of God’s beautiful world.
May you be blessed by this site and I pray that the Lord will touch your heart in a special way with just the words you need to hear on any given day!
