live well, love God, serve others

Hello, I'm Mandy

I'd like to introduce myself to you.  


I've been happily married to this amazing man for 17 years.  These are my four kiddos.  L is 13, J is 11, W is 9 and C is 8.  Obviously one of these is not like the others.  C joined our family through international adoption.  On this blog I'll be sharing about being a wife and mother, our family adventures, and our adoption journey.


I live in Zambia, Africa where my husband is the director of missions at Central Africa Baptist College and is a co-pastor at Kitwe Church.  I love living in Africa and raising my children here. I'll be sharing our life here in Zambia, our ministry experiences, and about living and raising our kids internationally.  


I am blessed to homeschool this crazy tribe and I love it. I would describe our homeschool style as a mix of intrest led learning and unschooling with a mix of the Charlotte Mason approach.  Homeschooling in Africa has it's own challenges, but also it's own adventures I would love to share with you.


And most importantly I am a daughter of the King of Kings.  I deeply treasure my relationship with my Savior and thoroughly enjoy Him.  It would be my pleasure to share with you the things God is teaching me as I journey through being a wife, mother, missionary, and homeschooler.  


I would love for you to join me on this journey.  My prayer is that what God is doing in and through my life would be an encouragement to those who join me.  Let's journey together and see what God does.
