Welcome

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am here to encourage ladies of all ages to live fully for Christ our Savior. I have been happily married to the love of my life, Pastor David Eddy, for twenty- one years, with whom we have ten wonderful children. My husband is the senior pastor at Manchester Community Church, and that makes me "The Preacher's Wife".

Some would ask if we are trying for a baseball team, but we are raising an army. The Lord's Army. To help us in our vision, we have felt God's leading to home educate. At first, many friends and relatives wondered if we intended to keep our kiddos home past the elementary years. Then they were asking about Junior High and High school. Well, when we began home schooling, we new it was for the long hall. Little did we know then, however, that we would actually home educate through college! That's right! Our first two children have their bachelors degree, from home, through on line college. Now, this doesn't mean that we are never going to let our young people leave the nest! Of course, we haven't done anything if they can't fly in the end, but our grads are only 19 and 17 years old. In fact, our 19 year old is planning a 5 month mission trip to Indonesia this summer. I expect that to change many aspects of our relationship with him. After that, his plan is to GO to seminary to study towards being a church planter. He is excited to get out there and make a difference for the Kingdom. Praise God!

Some of my passions are: homeschooling ( of course), babies and the care of, modesty, mentoring other women, health, and (new this month) essential oils and their uses. I also enjoy eating healthy and trying to feed my family healthfully, although, we don't get supper strict about it, as I have found that to steal our joy. We don't have any known allergies or anything, so we have never had to do anything drastic, though the kids would beg to differ.

My hope on this blog is to be an encouragement to friends, family and strangers. I will post pictures for our loved ones far away, funny stories to lighten our days, and serious things too, maybe sometimes making you squirm, but I pray that in the end, all will cause you to look inward or upward.
