First and foremost I am a child of God.  All the other things that I “am” could be stripped away, but no matter what happens I remain God’s child.  This is not about who I am, but about who God is and what He has done for me through Jesus Christ.

I have been married to Kirk for 16 1/2 years, and I can truly say he is my best friend!  We are far from perfect but we are getting better at forgiving quicker:).  There is no one I would rather spend my time with.

I am also a stay-at-home mom to 5 beautiful children.  It’s not always easy, but it is worth it!  Right now we choose to home-school Cade (4th grade), Ella (3rd grade), and Addie (Kindergarten).  Having our children home full-time coupled with Kirk owning his own marketing and web design business (www.interactive123.com) gives us SO much flexibility.

We live in Western Wisconsin but are natives to the Twin Cities in Minnesota.  We live on 20 acres on an old dairy farm.  We don’t have any idea how to farm, and we only have a dog named Fender and an outdoor cat named Shadow.  Maybe one day we’ll be adventurous enough to get chickens or something “farm-like”.

I have a passion for women’s stories and how we can encourage one-another and grow wise by walking alongside those who are wise (Proverbs 13:20).
