I am a wife to my amazingly handsome, multi-talented, God-centered husband, Mike. We have been married since I was just a baby after being high school sweet hearts FOREVER. The Lord has blessed us with (soon to be) 6 beautiful babies that challenge and bless us daily! I am a homeschooling mom and LOVE it! We live on a handful of acres alongside a shallow creek and have slowly been turning a house (that we built in 2005) into a home. We have raised pigs, bees and chickens (and of course kids!) over the years. I also love to grow and perserve my own food (there is just something about it that makes my heart smile), tackle home projects both big and small (I am a contractor's daughter), read, sew, quilt, crochet, knit and try to keep an open "Mary" home of hospitality (Luke 10:38-42).
