I’m a 24 year old woman living in a small town a little ways south of Ottawa, Ontario (Canada’s Capital) with my husband Louis, and my 2 children, Tobias and Annabel. We just bought our first house, so I may not be able to post regularly for the first little while as things are still a bit hectic!
My parents divorced when I was very young; so young that I don’t remember them together at all. I have a couple of very vague memories in the house we lived in. My twin brother and I spent some time living with my aunt and uncle while my Dad looked for a place for us to live.
We visited my mom most weekends while we were school age, and we almost always went to church as my grandfather was the minister at the Anglican church near my Mom. I grew up always knowing the Bible stories, but never knew about the special relationship God wanted with all of us. As I got older, I saw my mom less, due to a combination of my own weekend plans with friends, and my mom moving several times during my teen years. My Dad, brother, and I moved to a small town close to where I live now when I was 12, and soon after a classmate invited me to a local church youth group. It was there that I became a Christian, and I started going to church on my own.
Like many young adults, I went through times of straying from the path God had for me, especially through college. Shortly before the time I met my now-husband, I began going back to church and getting back into the Word. I’ve still had my ups and downs, but hopefully I will be able to keep going in the right direction now!
Have a blessed day,
