Who I Am

Hey everyone,

My name is Christine…a thirty-something daughter of the One True King. I have come a long way; but still have a long way to go on this path that The Lord has me walking on. I am married to the man of my dreams and mom to 3 amazing fur babies (we have a small problem with adopting dogs).

I was born and raised in a military family so I don’t really have a “home” but if I had to pick one place it would be New Jersey. I graduated high school there, went to college for a few years there and I still have family and friends that live there. That isn’t to say that any of the other places I have lived aren’t able to be called home but still…

I joined the military myself when I was 21 and set off for the greatest adventure of my life…or so I thought…then I got stationed in Minot, ND. Now if you don’t know anything about Minot or North Dakota, it’s really OK. I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting into when I was stationed here. I say that it wasn’t this grand adventure but that really isn’t the case, it may not be seeing crazy sights or spending time in historical or magical lands like friends of ours have had while being stationed overseas, but adventures have happened.

I met my AMAZING husband, Adam, and we have been married for over 8 years. We have lived through more moves in 1 town then we should count, adopted a dog, bought a home, adopted another dog, lost the home in a flood, tried to move to Arizona, moved back to ND, bought a second home, adopted 2 more dogs…again a small problem and then had to say good-bye to one of those dogs.

Right now we are in the mist of seeing just where the Lord is leading us. I feel that the past 10 years have really lead me to the adventure that is still yet to come. We aren’t sure where the Lord is going to lead us next, all we know is that we are really excited to be walking down this path that He has us on and I know that it is going to be FAR from boring!! Watch and see how God is changing our lives for the better!!!

This is by far one of my favorite photos of these 2. Penny was just a baby and Barney just stuck his head in the shot.
