Blizzard Blog Hop!!

It's BLIZZARD BLOGHOP time again!

I participated in this last year for the first time and really enjoyed meeting new bloggers and their fabulous blogs.  So without further delay, let's get this party started!!  A big thanks to Ann Marie from Household Diva 6 for hosting anther party this year.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  My name is Cherie, I am a Christian stay-at-home Mom, and I have been blogging for about two years.  I have met some incredible people through blogging, and they seem to bless me every day!  I've been married for 14 years to a man that God sent directly to me, and I have never let him escape!  He blesses me each and every day and I just can't imagine life without him.  We have three girls, a 20 year old in college, a 10 year old in 5th grade and a 9 year old in 3rd grade.  We have an incredible amount of fun with them.  The last member of our family is our Siberian Husky, McKinley.  She is gorgeous and provides our family with much joy.

 I write here about everyday life with my family.  You'll also find that many of my posts are about my faith and all that Jesus Christ has done in my life.  I can't image life without His guidance, grace, and forgiveness.

  13. Hello, I loved your post and am enjoying the Blog hop. You can check mine out at http://www.mindfulmakeover.com. We just finished an 11 week curriculum that is a great small group curriculum for an intergenerational women's group at a church.

  14. Love learning more about you my sweet friend! LOVE the pic of you with your beautiful family!

  15. Beautiful post and lovely family picture! I have heard great things about "Shepherding a CHild's heart" and it is next on my books to read.

  16. Hey there!

    Just hopping through from the #BlizzardBlogHop but already stalk you on twitter and my reader. Hehe... So glad you were able to join again this year! And looks like we have a bit in common here. I love Twizzlers too! Especially when pregnant... hmm... Kinda glad I am not craving them right now.

    Take care!

  17. Hi, I'm another one from the bloghop! I love walks on the beach too- I grew up in North Carolina close to the coast but didn't care nearly as much about it till I moved to CO, nothing like being landlocked to make you crave the ocean!

  18. I'm a new follower from the Blizzard Blog hop! I love your random list of things you love. What a fun idea. Nice to meet you!

    Wife on the Roller Coaster

  19. Beautiful family you have! Looks like you're a busy lady IRL and online! Can't wait to take a look around. My oldest is a sophomore in college and youngest is in 2nd grade. Nice to meet you.

  22. Dogs will truly bring joy to the family. They’re considered the family’s treasure. It will comfort the family especially in times of problems because whatever happens, it will stay loyal to its master.


I am so glad you that you stopped by today! What's on your mind?
