About Me

 My Story.

Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Shana. I am a follower of Christ, a pastor’s wife, and the mother to two crazy kids. Of course those are just a few things about me. I love the idea of homeschooling (we are at the beginning of this journey), gardening, writing, and road trips.

I initially started blogging to record my process of starting a garden. I have found blogging to be so much more than just an online journal! I love connecting with other people regardless of where they are!

I am finishing my Master’s thesis on Ephesians 5. It has been wonderful and annoying all at the same time. Depending, of course, on what I am currently working on. I love translating and researching. Editing citations? Not so much.

Our family LOVES to read. My husband and I like to have a lot of books on hand for ourselves and our kiddos. I joined Usborne Books & More as an independent consultant this year as a way to help keep getting awesome books at less cost. We buy a lot from used book sales, but they often don’t last long with our very gentle (haha) children.

This year I became a Deacon at our church. My home church did not have deacons, so this is a whole new thing for me.

I have always loved to travel and see new things. Now that we have children it’s even more fun!! We love to introduce our kids to new places! It makes it that much more exciting to see their excitement!
