I, like many of you, wear many hats! I am a wife, mom of 4 (kiddos born 1999, 2002, and 2004-twins), pharmacist, sister, daughter and friend. My husband was in the Navy for 23 years and is now retired from the military and teaches at a community college (and he looooves to golf. And watch movies). We are currently living in our 10th home, so I’m thankful for retirement! No more moving! My oldest son Zachary loves computers, math, technology, etc. He inspires me. He has quick wit and is so fun to be with. My 2nd son Joshua cannot stop moving. His passion is football and would play all day, every day if he could find a herd of boys to play with him. He is wise beyond his years and has an amazingly compassionate and empathetic heart. The twins are girls and are opposite in every way. Katie love, love, loves gymnastics and thanks to modern medicine (and God’s amazing grace) we keep her juvenile arthritis under control enough that she can be on a trampoline and tumbling team. Kristen also loves gymnastics and dance and is my mini me in so many ways. Except she loves fashion and I love function. I love my family. Almost as much as I love Jesus.
I was raised Catholic, left the church entirely in college, and then came back to Christ in search of something. I didn’t even know what I was looking for honestly. One year that I was living in the dorms a couple girls across the hall from me had Bible study in their room. I would go and listen and it was something very different from what I was taught growing up, and whatever that was I wanted to know more about. I came to know the Lord in much more of a relationship way through that journey of seeking. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
I hope you will seek Him with all your heart, too. He will be found by you.
