Hi! I'm Erin.
Here you will find out a little about what makes me who I am, who I love, what the Lord has been working in my heart and how I am learning to Consider God as I walk this path called life.
I come from a long line of work hard, do the right thing Dutch folk. I grew up a pastor’s kid and have been involved in Jesus stuff for as long as I can remember. I have always loved Jesus plain and simple, but it wasn’t until I had my first baby that I began to see Him in a whole new light, it was then that I felt Him in small, subtle ways begin to shift my mindset, break my heart and humble my soul.
Ron and I got married very young, not because we had to but because we wanted to and although that’s not for everyone, for us it has been awesome. This year we will celebrate twelve years of marriage. He’s got my back and loves me well, I’m a lucky lady. We like to think of ourselves as pretty even keel people, well okay he is at least, but we have fun building our lives together.
My first baby is now a boy, we have added two other little boys to our family through adoption and who knows if we’re done yet. Our oldest boy is a genuinely happy, easy going, sports loving’ blessing to our lives. Our second son is a wild one. We love his goofy nature, infectious laugh
and sharp mind. His strong personality will take him places one day and I can’t wait to see where. He too is such a blessing and we are thankful that he is part of our family. Our third is a sweet, gentle baby who spends most of his days trying to keep up with his big brothers. His love
of food is evident by his chubby cheeks and pudgy hands. He brings such joy to our home. I guess since we are talking about kids I should mention Marge, our dog, because yes I am one of those people. She completely thinks she's human and I admit that may be because I treat her
as one. Some days can get a bit crazy but I praise God for entrusting these little people(the human ones) to me.
The process of becoming a mom changed me greatly and it has been through my experiences of mothering and adopting that God has begun to speak to me. He is teaching me to find value in people that I would otherwise disregard, that through His ability I can love all people because they are created in His Image, absolutely no less worthy of love than me.
So I invite you…
Come with me as I’m considering that His ways are not like my ways, come let us learn how He desires for us to get involved in others lives, come let us be His example of kindness on the earth, come taste and see that He is good, come let Him prove His faithfulness to you, and finally come Praise His Holy Name with me. So Consider God
