About Me

 I'm 42, born-again, deeply in love and married to my best friend for the last 24 years, mom to 3 great young adults who are Stateside at college, missionary wife in Croatia for the last 15 years, Shih Tzu owner, gluten free, runner, and very sporadic blogger. 

We arrived in Croatia with three very young children and now we're empty nesters. Life is speeding by at lightning speed and I just wish I could down shift and slow it down a bit. Since I can't I'll just settle in and buckle up knowing that the Lord Jesus has it all under control.

  1. Super interesting! I loved reading all of this and hope the Croatians aren't known for being liars. :o) You'll crack up but I thought the bit about the house trailer hospital was funny, especially since they bulldozed the one where I was born! :o) Oh well . . . at least we got born! Great to see your kids and hubby and get acquainted.

  2. Thanks for dropping by Jerralea's Journey. I stopped by to check out your blog and I think we could be internet friends, so I became your newest follower. I don't like liars, either, and I can't understand why anyone would not accept Jesus as Savior.

  3. I am not a fan of green peas, either. :-) Or lying or gossip. It's sad when people don't seem to understand or don't want to accept Christ as Savior.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am following yours now, too. It is always great to meet another Christian blogger. Blessings!
