I am a Mom to three crazy monkies, ehem…sorry, kids ages 4 and under that never cease to entertain me everyday! Evan is 4, Jenna is 3 and Hayden is 6 months. While very entertaining, they can also make this job of being a mommy one of the toughest and yet also the most rewarding jobs on the planet. Never a dull moment. If there is, than that means someone is getting into something they shouldn’t. (Believe me, I know!)

I am a wife to an awesome husband and I would never dare let him know that he really is funny. He’s an awesome dad to our kids and I enjoy being with him now even more than the day we said “I do!” I don’t ever want another Teammate to do life with. I’ve got the best one already!

I love good customer service. I love to ponder to myself ways to improve things to make them better. Still figuring out why God wired my brain to work like that all the time, but for some reason, He did. I love warm weather and I would never turn down a trip to a beach, a piece of chocolate or a babysitter. (Any offers?!)

Faith is central to who we are as a family. I am reminded everyday as I parent my children that I am such a work in progress and I’m grateful that God still uses me, regardless of my imperfections. I love the church and the movement within it and culture, to fight for the Family. I bleed Orange. Some will know what that means. If you don’t, just ask or check out www.whatisorange.org.

I titled my blog Mom With A Minivan because well, I’m a mom with a minivan! I love my minivan whole heartedly, despite swearing I’d never own one. It’s something of an identity crisis to suddenly be that mom, however, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Its where I spend a good chunk of my life with my kids one on one. Many of my “ah-ha!” moments occur there, or I see glimpses of my kids faith growing or in action. Its where I’m often reminded that the seasons of parenting my children are rapidly flying by faster than I want them to. The days are long, but the years are short…I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
