I am so thankful that after 19 years of a life without God that He would save my soul! I didn't realize that I was on a path to destruction, even though it seemed well on the outside, a dean's list student at Virginia Tech, well liked among my peers and family, healthy and young. Yet my heart was dark with sin and after hearing the gospel at the church my husband invited me to, I answered the call to salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now my life is much much better than before, but I still am learning and improving everyday by Faith!


I love love love my family! Having a caring family is pricesless. I am so thankful to have a husband that follows after God! He motivates me and our children to do the same. We look forward to the future to see what else God has in store for our family. As of now we have 4 children

I was always taught by my mother that being overweight is genetic, from having babies, or your parents fault for feeding you too much. I grew up with the thought in the back of my head that I would never have a baby for fear of becoming overweight! Thanks to God after 4 babies in less than 5 years I am maintaining a weight that is less than my high school weight! I realize that you must work to maintain a healthy body. I do not use a gym, to save money on membership and time from the commute. I have to get up early before my husband leaves for work and go out for a run even in the rain and cold or do a workout video at home. Remember this scripture does not say that bodily excersice does not profit at all!
1 Timothy 4:8
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.


I believe God would have us to nourish our bodies with the food he gives us. As the world grows sicker and sicker despite all the innovations of modern medicine they are beginning to wake up to see that everything we need for our bodies to work properly is what God made from the land. I realize that many are giving thanks to "mother earth" and not God and that makes me sad =(
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soulprospereth.
I believe God loved us so much that He gave us a road map in his word on every area of our life. This includes the area of dress. In 1 Timothy 2:9 the bible says that
"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel" I know what kinds of fashions that would cause a man to look lustfully, I know very well; I used to dress in that manner. Even after receiving salvation, I dressed ignorantly to conform to the fashion of men. I am so thankful that God would show mercy and reveal to me the right way to dress. I am not condeming anyone does not dress the way I do, in fact it would be hypocritical to dress the way that I do but on the inside your heart does not have that desire. I have had a lot of questions over the years as to why I only wear skirts, here are many of the misconceptions I would like to clear up:
1)I do not think I am holier than anyone for wearing them
2)I do not wear them because my husband makes me
3)I do not wear a skirt because the church forces me to.
4) I do not wear a skirt because I think I may loose my salvation

The Real Reason
1) When wearing pants it accentuates my buttocks, and croch area.
2) I can see other men staring at women as they walk by and they are watching her rear end in jeans, I have never seen it happen to a woman walking past with a long flowing skirt on.
3) The word appearal used in Timothy is from the Greek katastole which means: letting down, I truly believe that there is a certain dress for me and it must be "let down" and not "pulled up" into every crevice of my body
