This PW.....

Today I'm linking up over at Kelly's Korner for Show Us Your Life  - Ministry Wives.  So, for those of you who are stopping by, Welcome!    For those of you who visit frequently, welcome back and thanks for reading my blog.  I thought I would tell you all some facts about this PW!!!

1. This PW has been married to her United Methodist Pastor Hubby for almost 12 years. 
And I just love him so much.  He does his job with great integrity and gives some of the greatest sermons I've ever heard.  He is an amazing Daddy!  He does super sweet things for me all the time like making my coffee for me almost every single day.  
And I love him even more for it because ......

2.  This PW doesn't like mornings and because of that....

3. This PW loves coffee.  But, I do drink the 1/2 caff version!

4.  This PW has 4 kiddos......
Allie is 10, Maggie is 8, Lillie is 7, and Brady is 3.
They are wonderful, normal, messy and sometimes trying kids.
But, each one of them is an incredible gift from God and all four have very different personalities.....

5. This PW has LOVED dressing my kids alike and making big, huge bows for my girls to wear.  And monograms, lots and lots of monograms.  Sadly, my girls don't want to wear bows much anymore. Nor do they want to dress alike much anymore.  
At least they will still wear the monograms......wait.  Will they rebel against those,too?!?

6.  Yes, this PW loves sweet tea {not syrupy!}, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, pecan pie, macaroni and cheese, and biscuits and gravy.  This PW is a quintessential southern girl. Living in North Carolina.  But born and raised in and  is still a Georgia girl in my heart.  

7.  This PW only likes chocolate IF it has something else in it.....nuts, peanut butter, etc...... Plain old Hersey's kisses? NOT my thing.   Reese's PB cups - LOVE {especially the holiday ones.}  Reese's cups that are shaped like Christmas trees, Easter eggs, or Valentine's hearts taste better.
8. This PW knows that God is using my kids and my husband to grow me into who HE is calling me to be each and every day.  And I long  to be authentic in Him and be growing nearer to my savior each and every day!

9. This PW has great anxiety over parenting decisions a lot of the time. I don't want to "mess my kids up", you know what I mean?  I was just having this conversation at lunch with some ladies the other day....

10.  This PW loves leading bible studies and doing Women's Ministry at our church. Our most recent bible study just ended.  I'm always sad when these studies end because I love the fellowship of being in small groups with other ladies.  BUT,  We are headed on a retreat next weekend and I simply cannot wait!!!!

11.  This PW loves to plan parties and events. =)

12. This PW loves pinterest.  It's soooooo much tidier than all the notebooks full of ripped out magazine pages I have collected over the years. And there are so many ideas for my parties, decorating and events!

13.  This PW really has an affinity for makeup. And is forever searching for the PERFECT mascara for my short, sparse eyelashes.  

14.  This PW likes to dress down  --SOMETIMES, sweats and such are great.  But, this PW also really loves my cute heels and dressier clothes.  And, though, I don't wear them often, this PW loves hats.  

15. This PW loves music.  All kids of music.  
It cheers me, saddens me, touches my heart and my soul.  
I really love music.  

OK, so I think that is enough......don't want to share too much. ;)  

 SO, this PW says thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and read all of this.
I am sure that whether you are new here or one of the people who stop by often, that you have learned something new about me today.  
Ya'll come back!!

in HIM-

Hey Mindy. Thanks for the comment! I'm married to a UM pastor too. Your kids are beautiful!

Angie Vik said...

Enjoyed reading about your family. So nice that your husband makes you coffee in the morning. I'm not a plain chocolate fan either. My favorite is white chocolate.

I just plain ol' love you!!! So much has changed and yet so much stays the same! :)

Laurie said...

Thank you for dropping by my blog.

You crack me up. I too am not a morning person. I like okra too. Maybe people who don't like mornings like okra. Ha!

I worry about my kids too. I'm just afraid I'm going to mess them up somehow.

Allison said...

Stopping by from Kelly's link up. What beautiful children you have.

Meg said...

thanks for stopping by my blog! I dread the day when my girls won't agree to my matching outfits (especially on special occasions!!) and I tell my husband that most PWs are music-loving women because their Ps are such word-loving men!! haha : )

Alyssa said...

Thanks for the comment, Mindy! I love finding new friends through Kelly's linkups!

Susan said...
