I am a wife, mom and grandma of eight.........we have four grown children (3 girls, one son) who live all over the country. :( My husband and I have been missionaries (Baptist) in France for about sixteen years, then in Kansas City, working with inner-city ministry. We have moved been back to the small Kansas town where we started out, almost 40 years ago for my husband to pastor the same little church he had pastored for nine years as a young pastor. I am once again a "pastor's wife" (a "job" in itself, yes!) ... my husband is pastoring the small Baptist church he had pastored for nine years before we went to France with the mission, where he taught at a Bible school/seminary. I have done some free-lance writing; am an artist and play the guitar, and learning to play the dulcimer. We have two pets: an English Bulldog, who is so funny looking that we can't help but love him. :) And now a puppy: a husky/german shepherd/lab mix.
