About Me

My life has been lived in Northwestern Pennsylvania (United States). I have attended church throughout my life. At the age of five, I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour...and trusted Him to forgive me of my sin and He has given me an eternal home in Heaven. At the age of twelve, I publically professed my faith and was baptized. Throughout high school I attended a Bible church and was involved with the youth group.

During college, I began attending Open Door Baptist Church. At about the same time I met my future husband, Chad, when I began working at a local restaurant. Chad and I married in 2004. We faithfully attend Open Door Baptist Church. Our two girls, Elizabeth (Liz) and Amber, joyfully attend with us. We enjoy being involved and serving God through our church.

As a homemaker, I love my time at home...maybe not so much the house work associated with having a family...laundry, cleaning, cooking, picking-up toys... but being at home allows for more craft time...

And I LOVE crafts...especially sewing! Crafts have been something I have enjoyed throughout my life. Some of my top endeavors have included sewing, cross-stitching, jewelry, wood-burning, scrapbooking, card making, and floral arranging. Right now at the top of my list is quilting and sewing! :) If only there were a few more hours in a day to be able to accomplish more projects!

Eight years ago I picked up another hobby, piano playing. It is great relaxation to sit down and play favorite hymns and songs...then to share some of them at church.

The Lord has greatly blessed me and to God goes the glory for all the creative abilities He has allowed me to have.

If any man speak,
let him speak as the oracles of God;
if any man minister, let him do it as
of the ability which God giveth:
that God in all things may be
glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom be praise and dominion
for ever and ever. Amen
1 Peter 4:11
