I am a Christian. I “grew up in the church” as a preacher’s kid. I became a Christian when I was 13 years old and made the decision to be baptized for the forgiveness of my sins and to be added to His church. I don’t always follow God perfectly, but I rest in His grace. I follow His Word and seek to learn more about Him through study and prayer.
Before becoming a wife and mom, I was a social worker. I maintain my LMSW license in case I ever need to return to full-time work outside of the home.
I married my husband in July 2007. He was already active duty with the U.S. Army at the time. I left my family, friends, job, church, and life in Texas behind and began a new life as an army wife. Our adventure began in Colorado and took us to Germany. My husband separated from the Military in November 2014.
I work as a stay at home mom to Dietrich and Madilynn. Both are a bit strong-willed, Madilynn more so than Dietrich. We homeschool our children. Both of them have food allergies, though Dietrich has more than Madilynn. I’ve adapted several recipes, which I’ve shared on this blog, to be egg free so he can still experience pancakes and cookies, in addition to being able to cook healthy meals for my family.
