  5. Hey Steph, I’ve known you almost as long as Ryan has, and I’ve still learned a few things from your list! Atleast your paperweights can double as an air freshener (there nothing like the smell of fresh baked paperweight). One question, WHY MCDONALDS??? Merry Christmas!
    Love you!

  6. I just found your website, but not sure exactly how I arrived. I also follow Passionate Homemaking, which has led me to many wonderful blog about Godly stewardship and living. There is so much to be shared and learned, I love every detail. I am finding the internet can be used for inspiring purposes. Thank you! I am a single mom of a 3 1/2 year old and almost 14 year old. They are my greatest joy and my greatest challenge. I live a life that is far from God’s ideal for family, but HE makes us work. Despite the differences in our lives, I am blessed by your commitment as a wife and mother – it restores my faith in what can be and why God’s design is always perfect. The message you give through the example of your life and your faith is so powerful.

    Blessings! Love the 100 things about me… You must have learned alot about you in this process. Might have to give this a whirl too.
