About Jami

Welcome!  My goal for this site is to be able to create a place where you can feel encouraged, comforted and not alone.   However, before I can even begin to tackle that, let me tell you a bit about myself. . .

123

  • I am married to my best friend and am passionate about having a strong marriage that sets an example for my children.
  • I homeschool my 3 children ( ages 6, 4 and 6 months) It may seem silly to say I homeschool a 6 month old, but let me tell you he makes him self very apparent throughout our daily routine! 🙂
  • Jesus Christ has changed my life, leaning on Him has gotten me through some extremely difficult times in my life and I wish everyone knew His grace and love
  • I think tattoos and the stories behind them are completely intriguing
  • I love just about any type of fresh flower, having them in my home just brings me joy!
  • Running is a big part of my life, not because I’m fantastic at it, but because it has helped me unwind when I need it (which happens to be pretty often!) and has brought me into some pretty cool opportunities
  • I think if you have served our country for even a single day you deserve to hear thank you an infinite number of times, if you have and you are reading this I appreciate you more than you know…
  • One of my favorite fall activities is watching NIU or Pittsburg Steelers football.  I fell in love with Pittsburg when I traveled there as a child and instantly decided I was a Steelers fan 🙂
  • I am most at peace when I’m in nature; lakes, beaches, hiking trail in the woods, setting up deer stands with my hubby, walking through fields that have just been combined with my children…pure heaven
  • Anxiety is my middle name, not because I chose it, it absolutely chose me!  Learning how to cope with this during stressful times has been one of my greatest challenges and accomplishments.
  • When myself or my children aren’t feeling well our first stop is the chiropractor, not medical doctor
  • I love my dogs more than people sometimes, the loyalty amazes me
  • I have a box of letters my husband wrote to me while he was in basic training and overseas and I treasure it more than anything
  • Getting my hair done is one of my favorite things to do, especially if it involves coffee, what girls doesn’t like to leave a place looking better than when she walked in?!
  • I heart coffee
  • Encouraging others gives me purpose in life and I’m thankful for that opportunity anytime I get it
  • I have a gluten intolerance and since figuring that out I have grown to love cooking and educating myself about how food affects the body
  • I was obsessed with Audrey Hepburn as a teenager, I mean OBSESSED!
  • The only movies I enjoy watching are comedies or documentaries, I feel the real world has enough violence going on that I don’t need to add more to my life, plus I love to laugh!

Yep, that’s a lot of info but hey I have a lot going on! Plus, my 6 month old is sleeping in my arms right now so I had a bit more time than expected 🙂
