Chats On The Farmhouse Porch
Time to join our friends Patrice and Wendell on their porch for some chatting! Pull up a chair and join us at Everyday Ruralty.
1 What was your favorite game as a child?
We played a lot of jacks when I was a kid. I wasn't great at it, but I loved playing it.
2. Have you ever had your own business? (home business, a shop, Etsy, lemon-aid stand, etc)
I sold Christmas decorations and home decor through House of Lloyd and later through Kingdom Treasures. They were party sales companies, like Tupperware.
3. How's your spelling?
I am a member of the grammar police. Seeing a word misspelled makes me break out in a rash. Yes, that bad.
4. How are you about going to the dentist?
I don't enjoy it, but I'm not terrified of it. My daughter, on the other hand, is getting ready to have her wisdom teeth removed. She is not liking the dentist a whole lot right now.
5. Do you enjoy board games?
Oh my yes!!! We love playing board games! Our favorite is Apples to Apples, but I also love playing Trivial Pursuit.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
