About me

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 22 years, and slowly but surely becoming acclimated to the South! I love my God, my family, my church, and my country. This year my grandson, who I love to blog about, turned EIGHT; my daughter and her hubby's little girl hit SIX, granddaughter number two is FIVE, her baby sister will turn FOUR, and the sassy girl will also turn FOUR and the baby of the bunch just turned 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 Brownsboro Baptist Church in Brownsboro, AL. My husband has been retired for five years 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, The Hobbit (et al.), Much Ado About Nothing, all of the Marvel movies, Three Musketeers, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Star War (I-VIII and back stories, too), 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!
