Seven Things about Me!

1. I am a mom of three beautiful children! I am a wife to a wonderful husband! But most of all I am a daughter of GOd! Who rescued me from destruction through his Son, Jesus Christ! I am proud of all of my labels and desire to grow stronger and deeper in all of them!

2. If I could blink my eyes and be doing anything in the whole world... I think it would be photography! I have such a passion for it and I enjoyed studying it in college. It is a great way to express myself through art! I also could be a proffesional painter, or really be doing anything crafty all the time! I just love it! I got the opportunity to do some engagement pictures for the first time the other day and could not be more excited at how they turned out.

3. The quickest way to my heart is through a Sonic Dr. Pepper. I can't get enough, and I will love any one who brings me one!! :) It is an outing for my kids and I, sad I know! True confession: I normally don't share with my kids when they ask for some, I pretend I am saving them from sugar overdose, but really I am being selfish... Is it so much to ask for one thing untouched by my crazy kids?

4. I LOVE to play games!Card games, board games, DVD games, anything really. My husband and I play card games all the time! We actually just found the game Sequence, (I know it has been around forever) somehow we have never played, it is so fun! Which leads me to my next fact...

5. I am super duper competitive! I mean it is pretty bad, I have had to tone it down a lot now that I have kids and fun! :) I love to win, and I love to compete in sports, games, really anything. Please Don't judge... My husband and I will make any simple action into a competition, one of our favorites is the radio game. He turns on the radio and if I can guess the name of the song or the artist for every preset station I get a prize...normally a Dr. Pepper. I am not the great, but he is really good!

6. Peanut butter brownies are my downfall. I mean, I will hide them around my house or not tell anyone I made them just so I can eat them all!

7. My biggest struggle is finding the right balance between being a mom and a wife and me! I am learning and growing through God's grace to see what that looks like! I am constantly reminded that there is a season for everything! I am seeking joy in the midst of chaos and find it most when I am in God's word.

Now I get to pass the awards on to 7 more great blogs...
