All the stuff about Tori you really could have done without!

My name is Victoria actually but Tori for short.
I'm 36 and pretty gray under all this hair color.
I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior in 1993 at the age of 21. I have been married to my best friend and lover for the last 18 years and every
year it gets to be more fun. We have been IFB missionaries in Croatia for the last 10 years.
We have 3 great kids who are 12, 14 and 17. Time is flying by and our little family of 5 will soon change when our son returns to the states for college. We are noticing that life is slowly changing. We are moving into a new stage of life and you know what?? I like it!
