Hello! And welcome to my little corner of the world. Thanks for stopping by! Let me introduce myself: My name is Melissa, but you can call me Mel.

I am a wife and a homeschooling, stay at home mommy to three beautiful girls, Katelyn, 5, and Madelyn,  3  and Jocelyn, born March 23rd of this year.  After two years of trying to conceive and one miscarriage the Lord blessed us with Jocelyn 2 months ago!  We’re thrilled.I want to have four children in all, Lord willing.  You’ll see little bits and pieces about this struggle of mine throughout my blog. I am 32 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband,Mike, for 9 years. I’m 5′1 and a 1/2. Mike is 6′7. Black Lingerie

I love being a mom. I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my girls. I’m astounded every day that Mike and I could have produced such amazing little people. And they’re cute to boot! They definitely got the best of each of us. I love coffee. Extra cream and sugar. I’m fascinated by natural and healthy living and am really trying to lead my family down that path. It’s been tiny baby steps in that area and I do blog about my progress. I’m also trying to “green” our life a little and be a little more eco -conscious.I’m a recycling fanatic. I recycle anything and everything I can. I think everyone should recycle. I love Freecycle.com. I love to read and watch my favorite shows on t.v. I’m trying to live more simply. Less cluttered. I enjoy gardening, manicures, pedicures, and reading while snuggled in bed. I loathe cleaning my tub, my oven or my fridge. I like girly things- pink and purple,jewelry, shopping, shoes and purses.
I was raised in Brazil for 15 years as a Missionary’s Kid. Not only was I a Missionary Kid but I was also a Pastor’s Kid! I speak fluent Portuguese. I wish I were doing a better job of teaching it to my children ,but I’m not. I have been a Christian since I was 7 years old and love my Lord with all my heart. My husband and I are doing our best to raise our children knowing the Lord and His love for them. We are very active  in our  new church. We are seeking the Lord’s will as to how we can minister in the new church we’ve been attending. We both have a passion for church ministry and are always on the lookout for areas that we can serve in. I started this blog mainly to keep in touch with my family and so my parents and siblings could see pictures of my kids. I live in New England and admit I am not fond of living here and miss my family (who live in Texas) like crazy. This blog has evovled into more than just an online photo album for my family. It has become a creative outlet for me to express and share some of my personal journeys and struggles. I still use it to post news and photos of my kids and daily life but I also want to share my struggle with contentment with where God wants me right now and my quest for a more healthy, natural, green and simple lifestyle. There are many things I need to work on to become a better woman, wife and mother. Thank you for reading my blog and following on my journey with me. I welcome comments, questions and feed back!

He’s a wonderful, godly husband and great dad. He has a passion for teaching and that is definitely a ministry God has called him to. His job has him working crazy hours but he still makes time for his family.
