My Family: I have 5 children, 2 girls and 3 boys! Six if you count my husband, Sam, who I have been married to for 23 years this June. :)

My Story: I came to know Jesus as MY Savior when I was 20 years old. My life before then was kind of a mess, to say the least. I found my husband at a college and career bible study, and 6 months later we were married and a month after that, we had a baby on the way! Being children ourselves and fairly new christians it was quite the drama for the first 10 years of our marriage. We always found a church home to attend every Sunday but we truly had no idea what we were doing! That caused many problems and we had no idea how to make it work and it almost didn’t. When we thought it couldn’t get any worse and we were separated, my husband found Real Life Ministries. I eventually followed him there and God promised me this, that “if you stay in this marriage I will give you the husband you have always wanted, and if you don’t stay… what glory will be in it for ME?”

Well it’s been 10 years now and we are incredibly blessed and I DO have the husband I’ve always desired!! Praise Jesus!

Favorite Verse: “For it is You who created my inward parts: You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works: my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:13-14.

Food: Being a full blown Italian girl from Chicago, much of our time involves yummy food. It’s kind of hard to find all the food your used to in Idaho…just saying…but I love it here and wouldn’t change that ever!

Quote: “One of my favorite quotes is, “The earth has music for those who listen.” Shakespeare.

Hobby: What I do when I’m not at work is spend much time with my family. They are so fun and time with them is precious, even though most of them are taller than me now!! Also, I’m a crazy worshiper!!! I guess thats a hobby. :) Woo-hoo!

Smell: I’m kind of funny in that my nose never lies, so you’ll find me smelling your coffee most times when I make it, just to know it’s made right! My favorite smell would probably be fresh lilacs… I can almost smell them now!
