Niagara Falls, ON
Full time Family Manager (aka stay at home momma) to 5 blessings through adoption. Married to my amazing husband for 8 years now.
Before my kids came home I worked with young adults as a missionary with Power to Change Students. Before that I was actively involved as youth leader. I have a degree from Western University in Biology with a minor in Religious Studies. University was my avenue to deeper faith in Christ and a clear purpose in life to help others discover Him!
I became a Christian when...
I was quite young. My Grandma was a huge example of faith in my life. After she passed away, and throughout high school, I really struggled with the notion that life is not fair (mainly because I had a really great life and I saw a lot of pain around me). Near the end of high school I did a lot of literal soul searching and re-dedicated my life to Christ.
A few of my favourite things...
My husband, my five kiddos, helping others discover Jesus, the beach, coffee (did I mention I have five kids!), our new homeschool adventure, books, family adventures, good food - bonus points if it's paired with good coffee
What I would say to my teenage self:
"Life is going to take you on some crazy twists and turns, but that's ok. It's going to give you a chance to have deep faith and to really see who your Anchor ultimately is. Keep saying 'Yes' to the little things God calls you to, so you can keep walking into a future that will be incredibly exciting and require incredible bravery and trust. Thankfully, God will also give you an amazing man who will be your partner through life's adventures."
A Bible verse I love:
"I have told you these things so that you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world!"
