Show Us Your Life

Today over at Kelly's Korner she is having Show Us Your Life and it's about your ministry!

I guess my ministry, passion, or love would have to be all my boys (Justin included)! I'm a stay at home mom with 4 boys. I'm lucky to have Justin who works hard so that I can stay at home and take care of our boys and house. Love him for that!


Jonathan is my oldest and I had him when I was sixteen. People ask me sometimes if I think he was a mistake. Never, no child of God is a mistake. I just should have waited for God to give me this gift when I was older. On top of having a child I got married. Needless to say we were divorced two years later. Jonathan lives with his father now because of the difference and fights me and him have. I think deep down he blames me for not being with his father. One day when he's older he will understand that we were just kids when we got married and that was all that happened.

I've been with Justin now for ten years today ( read here). We have 3 beautiful boys together Ethan, Jaxon, and Evan. I almost didn't make when I had Evan. I had to have an emergency c-section and I started to bleed internally (I'll save this story for another day soon).

I love my life even if it's not perfect. I share on this blog about my ups and downs and all the things I go through with raising boys! I love all my new bloggy friends and it's easier to get through the hard days with their sweet comments! So I hope y'all come back and join me on my crazy journey with all these boys!!

  5. Wow! FOUR boys! I always wanted four boys! Yes, actually PLANNED FOR FOUR BOYS!!! I was blessed with two boys and then a little girl! I wouldn't haven't any other way, of course! I would have tried for a fourth baby, but I too had bleeding problems during a c-section with my little girl and it was decided that it was best to tie my tubes. I'm very blessed though with my 3 healthy babies!
    I'll look foward to coming back and reading about your adventures!

  7. Its nice to hear from other stay at home Mommy's! I had my first child when I was just weeks shy of 17. He is five now. My hubby and I have been married 5 years now and are still wonderfully happy. We also have a 16 month old little girl. :) Its great that we all have different journeys but that God is in it all! I'm so glad that you have been happily married for 10 years and with three more beautiful boys! Your blog is precious!
