About

My husband pretty much excels at everything…he is an artist, a woodworker, an amazing coach, a great listener, and particularly wonderful at organizing small spaces…I am so thankful for his sense of humor! 🙂 Clearly he rocks out the grill, as well!!

There are few things in this life so far that I have felt really compelled to do. One was to marry my husband. I see now that this vocation has many many life-giving elements. It has inspired me to become a better person, by watching my children grow I have understood why homeschooling is the best choice for our family. When I watched the Good Shepherd presentation at the Atrium, I saw that God had this in mind for me, too. As I meet more and more women who are doing what I am doing, I am led by God to encourage them. This work is no small potatoes. This work of being a wife and mother has eternal effects, it is HUGE. I want to collect stories of faithful families with many children so I can publish a book, and in turn give joy and a hope to those who are struggling through the potty training, dishes, homework, and beautiful wiggly babies. The women that have gone before us have much to teach us! If you happen to know someone who fits the bill, e-mail me their contact information so I can interview them for my book.
God Bless YOU!

Abel and I  have eight wonderful children, here is a bit about them:

He's an amazing artist, and I can't wait to see what wonderful happenings he will have now that he's on his own! Love You!
Adam Guthrie

Adam is 22, and earns a hundred stars for being a great big brother and babysitter! We all love having our easy going and talented Adam Bomb around! Adam’s passion in life is music. He is thoroughly investing his time, resources, and energy into this endeavor, and we are very proud of his determination. Also, he’s really good with scissors. So, whenever we can, we get him over to cut our hair!!!

Mira Grace

10 years old

Very smart, very cuddly, and a gymnast in training! Mira is enjoying participating in volleyball and basketball this year, and is very good at both! Mira got her braces off recently, which was exciting. She is great at all things school related, and its been a pleasure to see this bright young lady push herself–especially to learn latin which isn’t her favorite. She would rather be reading or skypeing her best friend who lives in Austria!!

Anya Therese

4 years old

A real live fairy person, keeps us all laughing and scratching our heads! How does someone so small have so much personality? Although her independence can pose some challenges, we have hope that she will grow into a dynamic adult. Thankful for her collection of one-liners that she keeps bringing to the table. God truly does have a sense of humor!
