I am Kirsten, stay at home wife and mom, lover of my Lord Jesus Christ. I married my high school sweet heart and best friend. We now have three wonderful children. We live in the country on the parents farm and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My husband was born and raised on the farm and it is one of his passions. That is one of the many things I love about him. I am thrilled that we have the opportunity to raise our children the same way. They thoroughly enjoy being at the farm and I will never grow tired of seeing them explore and grow there. We try to live as naturally as possible, it is not an easy task though. We grow a lot of our own food and I can and freeze it to have over the winter months. I enjoy making home cooked meals for my family, but honestly I struggle with the meal planning aspect of it all. I am working on it though. The spring, summer and fall are busy times for this family. Between gardening and then preserving the produce, to my husband’s never ending work to do on the farm there is rarely often a dull moment.
It is not uncommon to find me lost in a good book or crafting something. Although trying to find time to do those things continues to become increasingly more difficult. With three small children and never ending housework I stay pretty busy. I love to be creative though and sometimes that just means incorporating that in my every day tasks. There is not often a time in this house when music of some sort in not playing. I grew up surrounded by music and I thoroughly enjoy it. My husband also loves music and we enjoy instilling the love for music into our children. Often times you will hear my favorite worship music playing. throughout the house.
I greatly value relationships, with my Husband, my kids, family, and friends. I will fiercely protect them. I enjoy the time that I have to spend with those that are close to me. I thrive best when I have others surrounding me. That being said there are times when I need some “me time” as I like to call it. During that time you would probably find me lost in a book or playing worship music on the piano spending time with the Lord.
Most importantly I cherish the relationship I have with the Lord. He comes first in my life and I would not be who I am without Him. I could not be the wife, mom, or friend that I desire to be without Him. I need His love and grace flowing through me, because let’s be honest this life thing is hard! I am definitely still a work in progress, but I have also come a long way. And I praise the Lord through it all.
