Hey how did you get this post to stick underneath your profile description? I tried all of the blogger add-ons and I couldn't figure it out.

Hi! I'm a homeschooling mom with 8 children of my own! When I married my husband he had a 5 year old so I became a mommy/wife at the same time. Since Dec. 1997 we have had 7 more children. I'm done now though. I came upon your website looking for a weekly memory verse for my kids to copy for "handwriting" in school. I just love your site. It's got everything that a Christian mom/wife could ever need. I saw the Nancy Lee Demoss "Encourage your husband challenge". She's really great! Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. I hope you're feeling well with your pregnancy and all is well with labor and delivery.

Hi, Sarah! I saw the comment you left on my "100 Things" today and thought I'd check yours out, too! What a weird coincidence that we have the exact same birthday! Also like you, I like things to be symmetrical, I love Francine Rivers (The Mark of the Lion Trilogy is SOOO good!), and grammatical errors bother me... a lot! :-)

Thanks for praying for me and my babies. What an honor and a blessing!

In Christ,
Angela
