In Five Lines or Less.......

I want to hear from YOU!
I love Facebook for a lot of reasons. One though, is catching up with people I haven't seen in ages...
over ten years for a lot of high school friends.

One of my high school friends and I reconnected on Facebook and she wrote on my wall:

Nice to see your face. So, catch me up to your life in Five lines or less. Can you do it?

So here's what I wrote back:

Married my high school sweetheart (you know the hot football player)
I'm a stay at home mom of 5 kids, but we never stay home.
Still the same nerd I always was.
At the moment we are on an adventure of a lifetime.
I'm a Christian and try to seek the Lord in all I do.

So, now I challenge YOU to tell me what you're all about in five lines or less. Can YOU do it?

I think this will be a great way to get to know some of my readers. If I know you already, still please share!

I'd love to hear about YOU!

Good one...let's see ;)

1. I am a daughter to the King and want Him to be proud of me.
2. I thought I was going to intern as an inner city missionary when I was 16 1/2 years old, but God really sent me to San Francisco to meet and marry the man of my dreams...the pastor's son!
3. My family is the most importanat thing to me on earth...I would sacrifice anything so they could have everything.
4. I am a nerd too ;) that started in grade school and just never left me alone!
5. I secretly with I were born in the 1800's or that I was Laura Ingalls...I would even settle living as an amish woman! Wierd, I know.

*My greatest passion is following hard after God...

*My husband is my greatest treasure...

*I love nurturing our two amazing daughters...

*Scrapbooking, cooking, journaling and jigsaw puzzles are things I love to do...

*People who knew me 20 years ago would never know I was the same person...


P.s.)When you are a stay-at-home mom who homeschools and pours your life into everyone else, it's kind of hard to think of things about "you"!?!

I am grateful for my salvation and pray so hard for my family....

I love my husband & best friend Lance I just wish we had met when we were younger (we were 29 & shopping at Office Max in San Dimas)

Being a mom is the greatest blessing in the world and we would have more if we were younger (both going on 41)

I want to bring glory and honor to the Lord in all I do and say.

I stay up way too I'm so tired! It's midnight, I better go to bed.

Andrea said...

I've been married almost 14 years to an adoring (and adorable) man who puts up with me! We've been living in Europe (UK and Germany )for almost eleven years now. I love that my children have a different perspective and tolerance of others and cultures. I am a mom to 5, but I am also thinking of returning to my long-lost profession as a speech-language pathologist when we move back to the USA this year. I am a natural red-head who has never colored my hair (my mom would shoot me!!).
