I have the very great joy to walk through this world with my husband, Dana, to whom I am happily married. I am also blessed to be mom to four children, and a son- and a daughter-in-law, all who belong to Jesus: Ashley (Andrew), Seth (Joy), Bryce, and Courtney. What’s more, I also get to be Grammy to little Calvin, Lewis, and Lucy.
I am gratefully redeemed, gratefully regenerated, gratefully Reformed.
I teach third grade now, but I was also a home-school mom for six years while rearing my children.
* The Christian Bible, especially the Old Testament (but, of course, the N.T. too);
* books… and reading, especially non-fiction and the classics;
* hymns, old and new;
* opera and golden oldies;
* black and white movies;
* camping in our big, blue bus…
[Oh…and I’m also a bit of a political junkie.]
Just a short time ago I was a mom to four small children, six and under. Now, wonder-of-wonders, I find myself already a mom to college students and college graduates, as well as a mother-in-law and now a grandmother.
God has really impressed upon Dana and me the gravity of our “job” ahead. Like most Christian parents and grandparents, Dana and I desire to see the baton of faith and Truth securely passed on to our future generations. We long to see God’s Word and true faith securely planted in the hearts of our descendants. This blog is meant to give a foothold to that end. I hope to include here in one place a compendium of things that are important to me and things I’d like our family (present and future) to know – a commonplace book of sorts.
Dana and I pray that God will give us opportunity to shoot over the horizon; to affect a future we will never see…to his great glory!
Soli Deo Gloria
He established a testimony in Jacob
and appointed a law in Israel,
which he commanded our fathers
to teach to their children,
that the next generation might know them,
the children yet unborn,
and arise and tell them to their children,
so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments.
