Stay at home mother of three, homeschooler, and pretty serious about vegetable gardening. My relationship with Jesus is precious to me, and I love to spend time in his presence and worship. I'm an avid once-a-month cooker. Thanks in great part to the canning forum, I spent the summer of 2008 learning to water bath can and dehydrate. Now I'm ready to work my way into pressure canning. I'm all about learning new things, organinzing things, growing things, and making things! I want to learn everything that I can in case the Lord calls our family out to the international mission field for a "long term". My husband and I have been called to short term trips to Guatemala and Costa Rica, and it is awesome to experience new cultures and serve the Lord's people in new ways.
