Is this thing even on?!

Well....long time no blog!! I am still alive and going to try to get back into posting family updates. I thought a good a time as any was today, to link up with Kelly at Kelly's Korner as she starts back up the blogging series called Show Us Your Life!

Let me introduce myself. I'm April and I'm a thirty-something Christian, wife and Mom of 2 living in rural, middle Tennessee. I live in the town I grew up in with one-stoplight.

I have been happily married to Michael for going on 12 years (this June!). Michael is a wonderful provider and father. We are pretty much opposites in personality (I'm quiet, he is more extroverted). He enjoys his job as a mechanic on firetrucks and other emergency vehicles. He is a triathlete and a deacon at our church. I am very proud of the man he has become over the years of our marriage and give all the glory to God.

We have 2 precious gifts from God. Jonah is 5 and in Kindergarten. Haley is 2.5 and is learning more and more words each day. They both bring us immense joy everyday and teach us as we try to teach them.

I mentioned that I'm a Christian, first and foremost. I became a Christian in 8th grade and was baptized for the remission of my sins. I thank God everyday for the amazing and awesome gift of His Son, Jesus.

I am a full-time, work-from-home Mom in a consulting and accounting industry. I love it! My daughter stays with my Mom each day while I work. I also am an avid reader and magazine hoarder. I love to do crafts when I have time and I know a little bit of sewing (but don't have much time to do it now days). I also teach the nursery Sunday school class at my church and I'm actively involved in our ladies ministry and our youth programs.

We recently got into camping in our new-to-us fifth-wheel camper and are ready to kick off camping season very soon!

I hope you will follow along and I would love to follow more family blogs, too! Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
