I am first a child of God . . . second, a wife to my firefighter husband of 10 years, Stephen . . . and finally, mommy to Jadon (6 yrs) and Jori (born March 2010) through domestic adoption. I am a firm believer that Christ died for me and I am saved by his grace. Although I am far from perfect, I try to live a life that shows Christ's love for us!
