Hi and welcome to my blog! I'm so excited that you somehow made your way over here, and I pray that you will find something here that will make you want to keep coming back. First and foremost, I am a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. I love my life as a pastor's wife, mama, nana, Bible teacher and mentor.  My husband and I have three beautiful daughters, three great sons-in-law, and eight of the most wonderful grandkids in the whole world. Together, my husband and I pastor a great church in Vancouver, Washington. 

I am passionate about home and family.  Being a mama and nana is the best. 

I love the beach.  I would take a beach cottage over a mansion anytime.

I have a quirky personality. I am creative. I am analytical.  I am methodical.  I am deep and contemplative...but I have a bizarre sense of humor! I am a people person, who needs wide margins of peace, quiet and alone time. I am silly.  I love to sing.  I love to whistle.  I love to write. I love to read. I love photography. I love home decor and antiquing. I love to cook. 

All that being said, without being preachy or pretentious, I hope that though this blog you will see that just following Jesus truly does make a difference in my real life.
