About Me

  1.  I'm a follower of Jesus.
  2. I've been married 13 years to my best friend. We are both sinners who are in the practice of forgiving one another. This is why we are still married.
  3. I'm a homemaker and love it.
  4. I'm a homeschooling mama to 5 daughters ages 9 months old to 12 years old.
  5. I'm an imperfect wife and mother but I work hard to make my hubby and kids happy and healthy.
  6. I'm a military wife. My husband is in the Air Force.
  7. I've had babies both naturally and with an epideral. I've had a midwife and doctors.
  8. I'm a sinner with a past and forgiven by my God. (1 John 1:9)
  9.  I make mistakes.
  10.  I am not perfect.
  11. I have 4 babies in heaven.
  12. I love making homemade all natural products.
  13. I love to read. 
  14. I love to cook.
  15. I'm Cajun French born and raised in Houston,Texas on boiled crawfish, etouffe, gumbo and boudain. Some of my favorite memories as a child are going to my aunts house in Gueydan, Louisiana and eating her food. Everything was prepared from scratch.
  16. I'm a southern girl through and through. Flip flops and boots are my thing. I love boots and so do my girls!!

  17. I say y'all and fixin to and am proud of it.
  18. I love watching bull riding.
  19. I am allergic to liars.( Matthew 5:37)
  20. I love to laugh.
  21. If I could only have one seasoning to cook with I would choose Tony Cachere.
  22. I love tea! Sweet, unsweet , herbal... I love it all!
  23. I strive to be healthy but I don't obsess over it. There's only one God in my life. 
  24. I don't like to exercise but I don't like to not exercise, so I exercise. :)
  25. I love children and my heart breaks over those being aborted by their mama's. My heart also aches for the regret and pain some of those mom's feel after its over.
  26. I love horses, deer, moose, dogs, cows, alpaca, kittens, elk and more. Basically I have a love of animals. (I think they are so much nicer than some humans. Just sayin...) Meet my moose 'Chocolate.' He lovingly sits on our bed and every now and then can be found sleeping with one of our daughters.
  27. I have a creative spirit and love making things to decorate my house with. It's so much cheaper to do it on your own and typically stores never have what I want so I make it. :)
  28. I make most of my household cleaners.
  29. I love being a woman and believe the Bible's teaching about women submitting to their husbands. (Colossians 3:18 & 1 Peter 3:1) One of my favorite books is 'Created to be a Helpmeet,' by Debi Pearl.
  30. I will stand up for God's laws, and have, even if that means I lose those closest to me, which I did. (Matthew 19:29)
  31. I believe actions speak louder than words.
  32. I have a tattoo but wouldn't get another one.
  33. I believe in miracles.
  34. I have seen first hand the power of the name of Jesus!
  35. I believe there is only one mediator between God and man and that is Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)
  36. I believe women should dress modestly (1 Timothy 2:9) but that doesn't mean that a woman has to wear a skirt to do so.
  37. I believe angels are very real and a part of our every day lives. (Hebrews 13:1)
  38. I once was lost but now am found.
