I am married to the most amazing man (the “Weatherman”), which proves that 1) You can find a good guy at Church and 2) Good things come to those who wait. Rob and I “hung out” for awhile before I ever acknowledged any of our time together as dating. As my best friend tells it, I had “commitment issues”. Either way, the man has the patience of a saint and in his mind (and I think that of everyone else in our church) had us married off long before I could even see the writing on the wall. When we married I became part of a larger family that included three lovely stepdaughters; Rob and I then had two more daughters. Our home has never been lacking when it comes to dolls, dresses, the color pink and estrogen. He has the patience of a saint.
More about me . . .
I am a first generation college student, the product of divorce, a blended family and a “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” mentality. The oldest of three, my picture can be found next to the definition of “first born”. Early in life I learned the value of perseverance and plan to pass along this same lesson to our girls.
Like many young adults, I stepped away from God while I was away at college. It was a slow departure over the course of my undergraduate years. My heart battled what it knew and felt; but the world overwhelmed my anemic faith. During my last year in law school I made my way back to the Church and a deeper, richer, and stronger relationship with my Lord and Savior. After law school I immediately began a career in public service. Together, my husband and I have served within a variety of roles within the body of Christ. Currently, we are helping to launch a new Church within our community.
My heart . . .
I love God and His people. I love to talk with them and interact; to find out what makes them tick, what they’re passionate about, and what their goals are. People and relationships matter to me. I’ve always thought that the worst job for me would involve some type of solitary environment (like a lab or small office) I’d deflate and suffer withdrawal, grow bored and eat copious amounts of chocolate. Not a “good thing.”
I am passionate about being a Christ-follower and I am passionate about being the wife God created me to be. I believe that Motherhood Matters.
Women are uniquely gifted to serve and lead within the home, workplace, and church and I want to share with you why I believe motherhood and parenting are so incredibly significant. More importantly, I want to encourage you as we try to figure out this thing called motherhood.
