About Me

Updated 05/30/2021.

I will bend a knee to no one except my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I live in the southcentral part of my state, where I was born and raised. I’ve moved several times during my life within my state but have never lived outside my state. I’m full-time caregiver for my husband who was also born and raised here. I’m mom to two grown sons (one is in heaven) from a previous marriage and grandma to six (one is in heaven).

The people in my life:

Jerry – my husband; I’m his full-time caregiver due to his permanent disabilities (multiple medical conditions).

Jeff (1979-2013) – my oldest son from a previous marriage; he died in an industrial accident at age 34 leaving behind a wife and three young children.

Amanda – Jeff’s widow; now engaged to James.

Andrew – son of Jeff and Amanda; age 20; general manager of a restaurant; expecting his first child with his fiancé, Kaylee, on December 31, 2021.

Madison – oldest daughter of Jeff and Amanda; age 17; will be senior in high school for 2021-2022 school year; works at a big craft store.

Kara – youngest daughter of Jeff and Amanda; age 13; will be in eighth grade for the 2021-2022 school year.

John – my youngest son from a previous marriage; he was feet away when the accident occurred that killed his brother, Jeff; recently filed for divorce.

Aero – John’s three-year-old son (lives with John); super-smart, goofy, fun-loving little guy!

First and foremost, I’m a Christian – I am nothing without Jesus. I absolutely live for gardening in the spring, summer, and autumn. I spend my winters working on genealogy. The rest of the time I’m crafting, painting, sewing, and writing.

By choice, we do not own a television, dvd player, or any of that other stuff. I am not on any social media. I deleted facebook and instagram many years ago. I rarely used them anyway, having only connected with some of my cousins and a few church friends.

I’ve been blogging since 1998; I had three other blogs in the past. When Christians and conservatives began being canceled, I acquired my own domain with a company outside of the U.S. and E.U. realm where I can say and do what I want. If you don’t like what I say, you don’t have to be here. I will not tolerate nor give an audience to threats or rude comments. Comment moderation is automatic with certain words effecting an immediate ban – they will never even be seen by me or other readers or commenters.
