Hi there, and thanks for stopping by my little corner on the web!
In case you're new around here, I'd love to introduce myself!
I'm Katrina; lover of Jesus, wife to Nathan, and mother to our four little boys.
I was blessed to be raised by wonderful, God-fearing parents in a home full of love, laughter, and life lessons. Home-educated from first grade through college, I am deeply grateful for the value my parents placed on the eternal state of the souls of their children, and thus their desire to nurture us in the Word of God, to teach us character, and to provide us with a quality education that focused on a love for learning!
Following my high school graduation, I decided to devote my life to ministry wherever the Lord opened the door. At different seasons, my days were filled with teaching piano, tutoring children, discipling young women, serving busy mothers, studying the Bible for college credit, counseling at a crisis pregnancy center, learning Spanish, and caring for orphans. Over the years, these adventures took me to Peru, Haiti, Ukraine, and Bolivia, several states in the U.S., and my own backyard of Houston, Texas. I loved being single and serving God in all these ways...yet, I also cherished the dream of someday getting married and raising a family.
In January of 2012, upon my return from a six-month sojourn in Bolvia, the Lord saw fit to bring into my life the man of these dreams for whom I had prayed for so many years! God wrote the most beautiful love story for us (which you can read on this blog!), and we were married in May of that year.
My husband, Nathan, is a pastor with a passion to preach and teach the Word of God in line with its historical, literal context. Currently, we are living southeastern Ohio, serving at Faith Baptist Church. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys playing basketball, fishing, making desserts, and working on our small homestead. His long-term goals include training pastors in other parts of the world that don't have access to solid, Biblical teaching and raising a family that will carry forth the Godly legacy with which we have been blessed. He is a wonderful, amazing man, a gifted preacher, and my best friend!
The Lord has seen fit to bless us with four boys (so far)!
