Grab your favourite beverage and sit awhile with me.  I’ll be drinking tea.

My husband of 28 years is crazy sweet.  We have six kids, six dogs and the journey has been more than a little nuts. Our oldest son is married and we’re crazy excited to meet our first grandbaby! We have an organic farm, are heavily involved in ministry and like the creative, artsy-fartsy world. 

We’ve experienced crazy grace through infertility, self-employment, home-based businesses, work from home, standing in line at the food bank, moving a crazy number of times, foster care, heart conditions, health problems, attachment disorder, home-schooling, public schooling,  teenagers,tweens,  pre-schoolers, newborns, car-seats and every kind of body fluid you can imagine.

We have ministered together on stage as worship leaders, on missions trips,  in the back corners as small group leaders, in pastoral ministry with dreams to launch a new musicianary kind of thing.  We love youth, children, young adults, the boomers, the busters and all manner of life.  We are crazy about the body of Christ.

I am a patchwork of ideas and interests, gifts and talents…sometimes it drives ME crazy!  Soon we will find a store here for some of the things that come out of my craft room, a book I wrote and who knows what else.

I’m a bit of a dreamer, a writer, a creative eclectic and most of all a lover of God.  I hope that as you journey with me through mothering, wife-ing, pastor-ing, creating and learning that we can be friends, that in the midst of my crazy you will see the crazy grace of God all over.

Welcome here, to all this crazy grace,
