about us

My name is Patti, and I've been married to my best friend, Sam, for 32 years.

We have twelve beautiful children, there daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren.



My husband is a pastor and runs his own business, and I stay at home with our children, homeschooling, and pretending to clean the house. As well as being a wife and mom, I enjoy scrapbooking, playing piano for our church, blogging about Down syndrome and life with a large family.

 We are doing our best to raise our children to love God with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strength ... as a family we hope to share the love of Jesus with as many people as possible.

This blog was started during the pregnancy of our tenth child, Lily Anne. Her birth, diagnosis, and life has already made a profound impact on our family and the lives of those around us....


...it's our hope it will do the same for you.
