There are many mommy blogs out there, and I certainly don't claim to be unique. I'm simply Melissa, a stay at home wife and mother of two (born 12/08 and 1/11) who wishes to chronicle the days of our family and what the Lord is doing in our lives.

My children are wonderful blessings - a wild, energetic little boy and a sweet, beautiful baby girl. My husband of  6 years is a veteran and the Administrative Director for an international missions organization called Mustard Seed Global Fellowship. MSGF currently has church plants in Nagoya and Osaka, Japan. Please visit their website to learn more about their work!

As for me personally, I am a lover of words, a Martha desperately trying to be a Mary, obsessed with my hair, and an admitted coffee snob (though I submit that all coffee tastes better when shared with a friend). I am passionate about health and food. I am striving for a simpler lifestyle. I am drawn to orphan care and hurting people, but I am still trying to figure what God wants me to do with those. The defining factor in my life is Jesus Christ, the redemption of the Cross and the power of the Holy Spirit in my life. I want to live a life that is radically sold out for God and kingdom work.
