About me

Gender Female
Occupation Wife/Helpmeet/Ministry Assistant
Location Alabama, United States
Introduction I am a transplant that grew up in Maryland, then served in the USNavy for six years, and now after 18 years, and slowly but surely becoming acclimated to the South! I love my God, my family, my church, and my country. In the coming year my grandson, who I love to blog about, will turn FIVE; my daughter and her hubby's little girl will hit the THREE, granddaughter number two just turned TWO, her baby sister will turn ONE, and the baby of the bunch (who's not yet six months) will also turn ONE! My husband and I continue to live in our RV as part of our ministry plan, in the most beautiful, heaven-on-earth setting! In addition, we are Service Corp Missionaries for the North American Mission Board and serving as church strengtheners to Wears Chapel Baptist Church in Huntsville, AL. My husband retired in last year and we have moved into ministry FULL TIME! God is doing great and wonderful things. Quilting has become a passion for me since I started in 2006; I am enjoying exploring all the possibilities quilting presents! :)
Interests God, studying His Word, teaching, Sunday School, choir, singing, drama, being the wife and mom God would have me to be. I adore tea parties and all things tea. I also love to read. Historical fiction, mystery, sci-fi, biographies -- I love to read it all! I've recently added quilting to my already stretched-at-the-seams interests. As my husband says, I have the incurable quilting virus! I also love to craft, sew, cook and bake. When we made the move to the RV, I learned to live far more simply and without a lot of the trappings of stuff -- but these lessons are on-going!
Favorite Movies Princess Bride, LOTR, Much Ado About Nothing, Three Musketeers, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Star War (I-VI), 13 Going on 30, almost everything Christmas! :)
Favorite Music Praise & worship; contemporary Christian! Classical music. Really, my tastes in music (just like my tastes in everything else) are very diverse and eclectic.
Favorite Books The Bible, Little Women, The Joy of Cooking, The Princess Bride, My Utmost for His Highest, Tale of Two Cities, The Guardian, The Warning, The Ultimatum, The Mitford Series, anything by Brock & Bodie Thoene. Good gravy, I can't list it all here!
