I am a mom of eight (yes, 8) children. Most of them are grown and raising families of their own. I am a registered nurse, a quilter, seamstress, artist, soap-making, cook, amateur architect. And probably a host of othere things I can't think of at the moment. I am also at the moment the president of the womens' organization in our church.
I have lived a very frugal life almost all the 32 years I have been married to my carpenter husband. It has never been easy raising a big family. But life has been good, and most of the time when we reminisce with our children, the hardest times have turned out to be the best of times.
I would like to share what I have learned as I blog, and maybe somewhere out there, someone will benefit from what I have been so blessed to learn.
