I’m so glad you stopped by my blog! Do let me know you visited by leaving a comment!
My name is Ann. I live in a small Northern Indiana town with my husband and son among the Amish buggies and corn fields, serving God in our daily lives and spreading His Word to our community and beyond.
Ann’Re is my childhood nickname and many family still call me by it. My middle name is Marie, after my godmother, and ‘Re is short for that.
I’m so blessed to work here at home doing the things I love: devoted wife of 23 years, mother and homeschool teacher to our 17 year old son, keeper of the home, maker of meals, tender of the gardens, prepper of the pantry, reader of cookbooks, pursuer of simplicity, stretcher of budgets, worker of hand crafts, chaser of dogs, watcher of birds, tender of chickens, breeder of dust bunnies, sipper of tea, drinker of too much coffee, student of the Scriptures, lover of Jesus, struggling Proverbs 31 and aspiring Titus 2 woman. I’m passionate about it all!
Philippines 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I started blogging is 2005 on my birthday. We had just moved away from family and friends, and this was a way to keep in touch with them as well as sharing things that interest me. My blogging has gone through many transformations since then, but recently I have gone back to my original purpose and have relaunched with a new blog and a fresh format. Unlike other blogs, my blog isn’t a source of income or promotion. The exception is the link to my Etsy shop where I sell goods I make by hand and an occasional post on something I’m working on. I blog here for my own purpose, enjoyment and therapy. I don’t seek any advertising, I don’t get compensated for things I mention, and I won’t accept free products in return for reviews. I pray that even though I share my thoughts, opinions, successes and struggles, that God will be glorified first and anyone reading will be encouraged.
Finally, this is MY blog and MY happy place. I am not like everyone else, I don’t fit in anywhere, and chances are pretty good that we will have different views or opinions on things. I’m all right with that…really…as long as everything here remains pleasant and friendly.
I am blessed that you took the time to stop in and visit. May our great King of kings and Lord of lords richly pour out His blessings on you as you seek and follow Him.
