I'm the oldest of eight children. God saved me at a young age, and I loved growing up with my siblings as my best friends. Being homeschooled was a wonderful gift, and allowed me to explore many interests. After graduation, I chose not to go to college, but still spent my single years productively. :)
After spending 20 years of my life on my family's farm in northern Wisconsin, I met a handsome engineer from southern California. Despite the distance, we made our relationship work, and were married Nov. 6, 2010. After living in Glendale (just outside Los Angeles) for nine months, we moved to a 130 year old house in New Hanover, IL (St. Louis, MO area).
Life is an adventure, but with God's help we are growing every day! He is always faithful.

I'm really enjoying God's gift of music these days. A few of my favorite artists are:
