Yay! You've come to visit! This blog is a dream of mine come true. It allows me to write, share ideas, and have a keepsake to show my kids one day. God is good! As you can tell, I'm a wife to my darling husband John since August 8, 2003, I'm a mommy of three. My Julia was born in 2007 and Mark was born in 2009 and Micah joined us in 2013! We are one busy little family!

I am a teacher by trade. I taught preschool for 7 months, and then 3rd and 4th grade for 7 years at Timothy Christian School. I left the teaching world on December 21, 2007, and ten days later Julia was born! I was always a very enthusiastic and confident teacher, but entering mommy-hood was quite the opposite. How could I be so good at teaching a room full of students but struggle to make it through the day as a new mom? God has me on a journey of finding my way as a mom, and I'm happy to say each day does get easier. I'm gaining more confidence as we all grow through this time! God is teaching me so many things about myself and how to be a better wife and mom.

I couldn't stay away from teaching, so ministry-wise for the past 3 years I've been teaching K-5 grade Sunday School, (recently I've hung up that hat, and for the past year I've taught a Ladies Bible Study group at my church). I love being a stay at home mom, but it's busier and harder than I ever imagined it could be! I'm learning how to manage meals, save money, teach my children, and maintain good communication in my marriage-all very daunting tasks at times!

Jesus, my best friend, is helping me through each day. I'm not perfect, I don't claim to be, but I do serve a holy God who gives me a LOT of grace. I'm hoping to share the following: what God is teaching me through the study of His Word, some teaching ideas, as well as meals our family loves, places we enjoy visiting, ideas of fun things to with kids, and just our journey through life together as a family. God has a purpose for all of us, and I do believe part of mine is to share what I'm learning with you!
