Introduction To Me

I finally have a blog! This is something that I've wanted to do for a while, just have never done it. I'm not going to promise that I'm going to post every day or even every week, but I'll try to update as when I can.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a full time wife and mommy and I love every minute of it! Like many moms, I imagine, I babysit so that I can stay at home with Landon (my son) and be the wife and mother that I feel God wants me to be. Some days are better than others, but I wouldn't change a thing! Anyway, back to me. :) I was raised in a Christian home...yep, I was in church every Sunday morning, night, and Wednesday night, and any other time the doors were open. I thank God for my parents every day and that He allowed me to be raised like this. My parents answered the call to full time mission service when I was seven years old. We spent 4 1/2 years on deputation trying to get to Germany to give the Germans the Gospel. We finally made it there when I was 11. I spent 7 years there, then came back to the States to go to Crown College. I went there with the intention of getting my associates in office administration and (I have to be honest), my MRS. :) I finally met the man of my dreams in April of my sophomore year. I then decided to go another two years and get a bachelors. We called and texted over the summer, then when we got back to school we began to "officially" date. This was in 2006. During this time, the Lord was working on my future husband's heart about planting a church in Pittsburgh, PA. He asked me to pray about it, and I did. I felt the Lord giving me burden for the area and church planting as well. During spring break of our junior year, he brought me to Pittsburgh for the first time (his parents came, too so don't freak out!). We went out for a romantic dinner and he asked me to marry him on top of Mt. Washington in Pittsburgh. Of course, I said yes and we were married in December 2007. I have to say, that I had the most beautiful wedding ever! In March 2009, I found out that I was expecting our first child! We were so excited and thankful for this little miracle that God had given us. In December 2009, God gave us our first child, Landon. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for him. We moved to Pittsburgh in March 2010 and have been here ever since. We started a Bible study in January, and are looking forward to starting Vision Baptist Church in September 2011. We can't wait to see what the Lord has for us here in this great city!
