The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy! PS 126:3
We have 5 children – Drew, Gavin, Morgan, Annika, and Gabrielle. 4 came to us by birth and our sweet little peanut came to us in June 2010 through the beauty of adoption. God has blessed us immeasureably, and we have no greater joy than to live our lives fully for him.

Why do you homeschool?
We started homeschooling when our oldest was preschool age, and just kept right on going. We love the family bonds it has formed and the fleeting time we get to spend together learning, laughing, and loving. We are looking to live out the Bible verse, James 1:27 which states: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Why do you blog?
I started our blog over 4 years ago to document our growing family for our far-away friends and family to follow, but it has turned into much more… it’s a place where I share my heart, some randomness, and my awesome kids and husband. I try to post something at least once a week, even if it’s just something funny one of the kids said!

Do you have a home business or hobby?
I have so many hobbies that it’s hard to devote much time to any of them… but I love to knit and crochet and sell baby/kid hats that I make by word-of-mouth. But I also love to sew and made my first shirt and dress for myself this winter.

What’s your favorite…
Color(s): red, black & white, purple, fuschia
Books: I love non-fiction books on marriage, mommying, adoption, homeschooling, Christian living, and health
Hobbies: knitting, exercise, blogging, reading, writing, sewing, crochet, movies
Dinner: I’m the comfort food cook, and my hubby is the meat and veggies cook. We’re a good team!
Dessert: anything creamy and chocolate-y!
Season: Summer is short lived and fantastic where I live, so we SOAK IT UP.
