A little about me!


I have tried to expand and explore a little more with blogging and thought I would share a bit about myself so any new comers can learn a bit more.

I live in West Virginia with my husband and 3 sons.

I am a stay at home mom. I love every single minute of pouring my heart to teach these boys. I do have a degree in Elementary Education and I have used it before. But for now, the Lord has me in my home serving my family.

We have been married for 10 years, and in our 4th year of marriage we built our forever home.
(Lord willing we will get to stay here :)

We live on 4 acres out in the country hills of West Virginia. We do wear shoes and even talk well, just with a little more of an accent :)

We raise about 30 chickens. Our boys sell the eggs to neighbors and use the money for summer trips and such. They have really learned a lot from raising chickens and selling eggs.

There are always new coming baby chicks out in the barn.

I love to cook and try out new recipes. I LOVE the Pioneer Woman and anything that's a good hearty dinner for these boys of mine. They are true country boys and love meat and potatoes.

I love to garden and work in my flower beds. I also love to hang clothes on the line :)

We live a very simple life. Nothing fancy, and nothing boring with 3 boys.

I love the Amish way of living.

They just fascinate me.

So you'll normally find me reading an Amish novel or the bible if you walk in on a rainy day.

Over the past few years I have become very convicted of dressing modestly. I did not grow up this way, nor was I in a church that believed this. However, in my adult life I felt from reading and studying God's word it was most pleasing to wear skirts and dresses. It has been a huge change, but a huge blessing to me.

We attend Church of Christ, and enjoy the biblical truth they provide each service.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Please leave me a comment and let me know where you are from :)



Check out my friend Teresa's blog: http://simplyfarmhouse.blogspot.com

I have been blessed to have her as a mentor.

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5

Teresa certainly has a lot of wisdom to share. I, also, have learned many things from her.

It sounds like you and I have many things in common. :) It's been lovely getting to know you better!

Hi Stacy! Thank you for your post! It was fun to read more about you as I have just recently started visiting your blog. I also enjoyed checking out your friend Teresa's blog. Living in Phoenix, AZ I love seeing all the green where you live. Living in the cooler country sounds so nice. I also did not always dress modestly but the Lord has convicted me more as I have gotten older. I wear skirts and dresses most the time but I think I pretty much stand alone here. It is so hot most the year and most people think the less clothes the better! So nice to connect with others that share similar views. Thanks for linking up at the Friday at the Fire Station link-up!
