Matthew Harvey, my husband of 13 years, boyfriend, sweetheart, provider, and hunky man is the man of my dreams. He is everything I could ever hope for or want. When God gave me my awesome husband, He gave me an unspeakable gift. He is a prayer warrior, awesome father, superb husband, church music director, assistant pastor, and hard worker. I could never ask for anyone better!
This is a picture of our family just goofing off. We enjoy doing things together, learning new things, and just being silly. Sierra is 12, Hannah is 9, and Rebekka is 6, and Samuel is 4 years old. After God and my husband, they are the love of my life.
My babies are best of friends and worst of enemies. They fight, squabble, and relentlessly torment each other, but quickly forgive and forget and go right back to loving each other like only sibblings can love.
My angels work hard at keeping Mommy busy, getting into mischief, and asking for YET MORE food all day long, but I would be lost without them.
Training and loving my children is my purpose in life second only to loving God and completing my husband. Being a submissive wife, good mother, and frugal housekeeper is my calling, my ministry. Without my family, I would be nothing. I need them, and it is nice to know they need me. I thank God everyday for giving me this ability to serve Him by serving them!
One way I can serve my family is to bring in an income as the Proverbs 31 woman did. It's hard in this day to be able to completely care for your family and hold down a job too. I was going about my everyday life: loving on my four children, all the doctor appointments that go with being a special needs mom, homeschooling, blogger, Sunday School and Junior Church Teacher, author, and house wife, when opportunity hit me in the face. I now write for Upworks.com and am praying about teaching English to Chinese students. We shall see what happens with that. God is good to provide these opportunities.
