It happens…probably more than we care to admit. Johnnie does such and such while dad is at work. Mom attempts some discipline and utters the oft-used-in-humor “Just wait till your father gets home!” or some such thing. Dad gets home…and then… Nothing.

Candy

Candy

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile. She’s been married to her best friend and the love of her life for almost 25 years and is navigating motherhood with her 4 children, aged 23, 19, 14, & 11. Homeschooling for over 18 years now, she is also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – she actually considers making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.

A Word of Affirmation in Marriage

Mandy Kelly

Mandy Kelly

Mandy is passionate about two things: The Word of God and the Souls of Men (and Ladies!). She is a married to her best friend, and gets the privilege to love on their three blessings (who lost their biological momma leaving her husband widowed).She loves that the Lord has let her life be an example of delighting in Him and watching Him mold her life to make her desires match His. Deeply desiring to bring God glory through her roles as Christ-follower, Wife and Mother (in that order!), she enjoys women’s ministry, cooking, crafting, and traveling the world. Mandy is also passionate about adoption and helping women with infertility- as both are areas God has trusted her with. Her greatest desires are to have her marriage bring God ultimate glory, see her children walk in truth, to lead others to the feet of Jesus, and to lead women into deeper and intimate relationship with their Savior through study of the Word of God. You can also find her on Pinterest and Instagram.
