First and foremost, I rejoice in my heavenly Father. Secondly, I rejoice in how He has blessed me.
I love my husband, Steven: love to serve him, love to make him smile, love to be his wife. I honor him and respect him, admire him and cherish him with every thread of my being. I am one with him, by God’s great and continual covenant grace. He owns and operates a Bible software company called Olive Tree, and I’m proud of his years of work there encouraging people to pursue Bible reading & Bible study through technology.
I love my children, those in my arms & in heaven: Covenant Hope (July 2007); Gabriel David, born in May 2008; Glory Hesed (March 2009); Promise Anastasis (June 2009); Peace Nikonos (November 2009); Mercy Kyrie (January 2010); Victory Athanasius (May 2010); Hosanna Praise (November 2010); Asher Timothy, born in November 2011; Evangeline Joy, born in February 2013; Heritage Peniel (January 2014); Fidelis Se’arah (May 2014); Simeon James, born in October 2015; and Seth Tyndale, born in June 2019.
I enjoy keeping my home, serving my family, living in the country, pursuing generational & covenantal living, ministering to others enduring the grief of miscarriage, connecting with other moms educating their children for Christ, and seeking to grow in grace. I host an annual conference for moms in the Pacific Northwest who are raising their kids for Christ. You can find me organizing those November events at Paideia Northwest. I have particular interest in homeschooling, music, reading, gardening, crafting, sewing, cooking, baking, writing, and am ever eager to learn new skills as well as hone old ones.
Honestly, my days are full of daily basics- the domestic pursuits that seem inglorious and futile, but really are the backbone of culture-creation, the mainstay of home. Spending my days at home with five extremely curious, high energy, super intelligent children is the easiest decision and hardest work of my life. I should also tell you that every single one of us are book fiends… bibliophiles by ten months old, most of them reading fluently by four years old, every one of us collecting books by the box-full!
To God be all praise and glory and majesty.
