Me & Mine

This is the place where I share a little bit about the most important people in my life...those I refer to as "Mine" - those whom God has entrusted to me for a time such as this...

Chris - Often times referred to here as My Man, he truly is the Man of my dreams.  We just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary in February.  Ahhhmazing!  I was thinking about it and in those 18 years, we've lived in two different states - a total of eight homes, gave birth to two children and homeschooled them until grades 3 and 5.  My Man is solely responsible for building up an internet business that to this day amazes me.  He's a man who enjoys the quiet life, fixing things, and traveling.
 I can't imagine my life without him!

Anna - Our firstborn - who turns 16 in a couple months is a real Jesus-girl whose love for the Lord shines right in her eyes, and especially comes out when she dances in worship.  She is tremendously creative - in the dance, art (drawing), words (she loves to write) and even her clothing...she loves to create unique outfits on a budget (ok, so we are working on the budget part).
She loves all things social - real life relationships challenge her daily; twitter and pinterest consume much of her free time; and Instagram is where she shares some of her best creativity.  


John - Our second born - who turns 14 in a couple of months is also quite the Jesus-worshipper, only he finds himself behind a drum kit where he's been playing since he was about 3.  He's also been playing baseball for just about as long - the boy has quite the swing I tell you!
He's a crazy mix of shy, introvert, fun-loving and side-splitting funny.  His sense of humor is dry and makes me laugh all. the. time.  

Zoe - Our Shiz-tzu, bichon mix.  We've decided she is a Shizon.  We've had her since she was a wee little puppy of 8 weeks.  She is now seven years old.  She really is a part of our family...she drives us crazy one minute and cracks us up the next.
She is full of "life" which is what her name means...


And just in case you missed it...
                      here's the ABOUT page for the blog...

Welcome to Enjoy the Process, where I endeavor to share my story ~ 
First & foremost, I'm a Jesus-girl, a sinner saved by grace, walking everyday by His empowerment!  I'm married to the Man of my dreams - literally, and together, we are raising two teenagers.
My life is all about Living well, Laughing often, & Loving much, so that is what I share.  Things like...
  • our gluten-free diet lifestyle, including recipes and links I find helpful...
