About Me...

Hello! Welcome to my little piece of the blog-o-sphere! This is where I journal my daily life, the good, the bad and the ugly. I pray that in all that I do that I shine brightly for the One who has saved me from certain death....Christ Jesus!

Although my life is not perfect (HA!) it is beautiful. God has blessed me beyond measure!! He has allowed me a wonderful, Godly man that leads our family with grace and love. Sean is also my very best friend in the whole world! We have been sharing life together since I was 15 years old (Boy, that was a LONG time ago! LOL!) We've been married almost 21 years and I couldn't imagine doing life without him beside me.  God has graciously chosen us to be the parents of 7 precious children. Two from my womb, Zachary and Ryan, and 5 from our hearts, Kyalynn, Connor, Gabriella, Nolan and Samuel. Are we done adopting yet? Honestly, only God knows. LOL!

I pray that my words on this blog may inspire, encourage, educate, motivate, support, cause laughter, tears, and always, without fail, point you to Christ!

Shining for Him....

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

Mini Me

I can't get over how much we look alike in this picture!   The smile....the eyes... Precious!

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 

She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us sometimes that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
