I'm a daughter of the King - a born-again Christian since I was 7 years old. I've been married since 1985 to the love of my life who has had a mid-life change of career from a computer software engineer in the audio industry to a pastor at an independent Baptist church. I'm a mom of 4 miracle babies - all prayed for hard and worked for after battling infertility. We live on Long Island a few blocks from the beautiful shores of the Long Island Sound and love to spend time sailing on that Sound and beyond. I'm a homeschooling mom and a college mom (!) and work part time out of the house (at church, so I can take my kids) as well as working on training a horse a few days a week. I love my life and thank God every day for allowing me to live it.
My life verse is Jeremiah 29:11 where God says "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." God has had a plan for me since before I was born and it amazes me constantly to see what that plan is at it unfolds before me.
I saw a friend do this and thought it would be fun!
