The Ultimate Blog Party!







Alas, here I am getting in on the action late!

Here I am though. Now, on to the nitty gritty:



I live in dry old Golden, Colorado, it's a suburb (I guess) of Denver so we have all the big city fun with a small town feel.

I am currently 26 and have been married for 7 years. And if you can do the math, I was 18 when I eloped with my studly husband. We eloped because we knew we were to get married and family disagreed. Best decision ever!

We are missionaries, heart and soul. We were burned by our first missions organization and have since taken on the position of missions pastor at our church. Our heart yearns to move to Turkey, but until God gives us the green light we are all about encouraging those we know out in the field.

I've been to Thailand, China, Nicaragua and Turkey and am constantly itching to go to more places.

My daughter Ruth (age 6) is an old hand at travel since her first trip overseas was at 4 months. She's the spitting image of me as a child and I love it!

My son Caedmon (nearly 4) is a constant comedian and a light in the house. Did I mention that he's cute.

"What do you blog about?" you may ask. WELL, just about everything. TV, movies, mood swings, parenting, misplaced ribs, odd eating habits and my growth and learning of my spiritual walk. I'm honest and am also a cusser...which drives my spouse crazy! I strive to encourage those around me to be more of the people they were created to be.

There's an amazing list of prizes for this Blog Party. Here are my top picks:
