About: Mel

Not a writer, but I love to write and I often have lots to say. I tend to speak from a mix of experience, Bible study, faith, dumb decisions, research, facts and just plain common sense...which isn't so common in the world. Going on 5 years of marriage to the most amazing man in the world, and I could not have asked God for a more perfect husband. I'm a mom of 4 very different kids that keep us busy (and happy). C is early 20's and has a family of his own. He's made me a "Mimi" (code for grandma) to the most handsome and happy baby boys and girl ever created! Our daughter B is estranged of her own choice, however our prayer is for her growth in Christ, clarity and that one day she will realize that she has an entire paternal family that just want to love her. Our first "baby," the now second youngest, J is not a baby at all, she is going on 17 next year, and is an amazing young woman of God. God blessed our blended family with a surprise (to us) baby, Hannah. She is everything we never knew we wanted as a couple marrying later in life. It's quite a shock and thrill to think you are done raising kids, with your youngest at 15, and find out that God's plan is completely opposite. We are excited, worried, thrilled, tired absolutely thankful for our children! God is good! My writing comes from things I'm dealing with or interested in at the time. I often write about family, marriage, submission, Christianity, parenting and a few odds and ends things like knitting, or my dogs. I hope that the topics you find here give you something to think about, reflect on, disagree with, research and act upon. I welcome you to get involved and comment and share! Thank you for reading!
