I'm an American preacher's kid who became a Canadian pastor's wife. I have the greatest parents in the world! By the time I was two, my mom taught me to quote more than 200 Bible verses. (Way to go, Mom!) My dad was always my favourite preacher. After I grew up, I was a book editor and a magazine/web copy editor. But since age 12, I knew my true calling and passion lay in ministry. The year I spent as a missionary in the Netherlands was life changing in many ways. I met my love, Peter, and God graciously granted my lost dream of being a pastor's wife. Peter and I have three beautiful children and the cutest granddaughter and grandson you've ever seen. smile emoticon I love tiffany blue and cherry red (not necessarily together), coffee (trying to be healthier with "fake" barley/chicory coffee these days), jasmine green tea and myriad other teas, ethnic foods, dark chocolate (especially with nuts!), European style, vintage décor, music (vocal, piano, harp). and books!
