Hi everyone! Here’s a little bit of info about me:
I’m a Christian Canadian woman, beloved wife, and homeschool mom of four kids – two boys and two girls. They are ages 16 (yikes! a driver’s license), 15 (as of Christmas Eve 2011), 13 (a most excellent baker and cook) and almost 11 (but a princess book-worm extraordinaire).
Some things I’m not fond of are shopping, pulling weeds, and bananas. But I love things like fair trade organic coffee, cooking ethnic dish sometimes es, writing, and designing houses.
My husband and I have done a lot of moving – always within Canada or the United States. In the first ten years of married life we moved nine times. Then we lived in the same house for eight years! But we just moved again into a different city. We’re in Canada, on the Manitoba prairies, surrounded by farmers’ fields and beautiful skies.
I have a passion for mentoring and training young people. I’m slowly beginning an international ministry to help moms mentor their kids and their kids’ friends. It’s wonderful to see what God is doing!
For most of our married life, my husband traveled a lot for work and I was at home with the kids. For this reason I have a soft spot in my heart for Married Single Moms. I’m quite passionate about helping women in this situation stay engaged in their marriages and see their circumstances from God’s perspective. You can read more about this as well as tidbits of my family life (including gluten free cooking, homeschooling, teen girls, and other topics) at www.carlaanne.com/blog.
I’d like to encourage any of you who feel like you are a Married Single Mom to visit the my website (www.carlaanne.com) and order a copy of my recently released book written just for you – Married Mom Solo Parent: Finding God’s Strength to Face the Challenge.
