I have been married to my wonderful husband, Bob, for 14 years, and we co-author this blog together. I write, and Bob is the editor, photographer, and blog technician. We live with our 9 children in the beautiful Skagit Valley of WA. We're members of a family integrated, Independent Baptist church close to home. I love to organize, I enjoy singing, scrapbooking online, homeschooling, camp fires on the beach, taking walks, spending quality time with family, and coffee or tea with dear friends. I'm very practical, and very black-and-white in most things. I enjoy the simple. I love my slippers. I like to eat Pop Rocks candy with the kids. I love to laugh and cry in the same movie. And I aspire to bring hope, vision, and encouragement to you… Nice to meet you. *smile* If you're interested, here's a link to some photos of our family at play. http://tiny.cc/xkwvj.
