Our Children's Choir 2010
25th Anniversary/Wedding Renewal 2008
I never know what to write in these silly little boxes!
I'm a 54 year old woman with two adult children... over 20, but I guess they will always be my children! One is on her own, and the other is still in college, so usually, it's just me and a husband to care for and feed. Sometimes that is a real challenge, since DH is in and out at odd hours!
I am a teacher's aide at a local middle school (7th and 8th grade), and really enjoy the challenge of working with the students to whom I am assigned, and aiding the teachers with the job of helping students with specific learning disabilities and delays achieve all they can!
In addition, my "24/7" unpaid position in life is "pastor's wife!" Most days, this is a positive thing, but as with any other "position," sometimes the circumstances can really bring you down. Of course, as we often say, "The pay ain't much, but the retirement plan is 'out of this world!'" ;-)
At 55, with a family history of diabetes and osteoporosis, I am carrying 50+ lbs. of unnecessary weight, and it is time to get serious! As a pastor's wife, I am frequently a target of those cameras at church events, and I would really like to not cringe when I see my pictures!
Track my food intake, so I am more aware of what I eat.
Become more active on a daily basis.
Lose 55 lbs. by my 55th birthday.
Help my family learn to eat a more healthy diet.
Tracking my exercise and calories HERE!!
Developing a new exercise program with my SON as my exercise buddy.
I was raised in Valparaiso, Indiana
I now reside in Washington, IL--until the next time the Bishop decides where we will move... We go where the Bishop sends us!

You are in my prayer. I am on my way out the door as I have a friend from NY visiting, but want to sit down give you words of encouragement that aren't rushed. I will get back to you, but just know that our Lord Jesus loves you with an everlasting love & that the stripes He took at Calvary were not only for our physical healing, but our mental healing as well. He wants you to have Joy in your life! I have been where you are at & He has given me Joy unspeakable! I'm sorry I can't continue writing, but I'll be back! God bless you! Your sister in Christ Jesus, Jennifer
