If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I'm participating in a scavenger hunt atThe Preacher's Wife website. If you'd like to know more, click on the above button.

The Treasures

2. State and Country of Residence. Ohio, USA

3. Husband’s Ministry Title. Pastor

4. Length of time in Current Ministry Location. {IMPORTANT: There are several of you who may not be in a current ‘official’ pastorate/ministry, etc. That makes you no less a minister’s wife! You play along, girlfriends, and let us pray for you!} 13 years

5. Children? If yes, give gender and ages. 2 girls ages 15 and 18

6. Number of unique homes in which you’ve lived during your marriage. 4

7. Cook Sunday lunch or eat out? Eat out or carry out

8. Typically on time for Sunday School or not? Yes, usually, which is a good thing since I'm one of the teachers. (Today doesn't count. I was late because I was reading everyone's post for the scavenger hunt! lol)

9. Favorite TV Show. Extreme Home Makeover

10. Something you watch/like/do that you would never tell the church people. (Except now you just did…lol) I really can't think of anything except maybe that I watch Survivor.

11. Most annoying church-related pet peeve. Folks who think criticism is a spiritual gift.

12. One thing you need to throw away but can’t bring yourself to do it. Some clothes that I haven't fit in for the last 5 years, but I keep hoping some day I will.

13. The one food you can not live without. chocolate

14. Parsonage or have your own home? own home

15. Freak when the doorbell rings or always ready for a visitor? Definitely freak! Wish I didn't, but I do.


  1. That was fun. That is a big pet peeve of mine in the church too. You will never be able to please everyone, but why do they have to be so critical?

  2. this was good. my pet peeve is that our people show up late to church. It is a cultural thing but it drives me crazy..we start the service, literally with 10-15 people in the sanctuary. But within 15 minutes the place is full. I just don't get it.

    the show I watch that I would tell the congregation is "Americas next top model" I watch b/c my daughter watches and we call and talk about it and b/c it is so ridiculous!!

  3. Oh, I love #11! That is soo true...although, I know sometimes I can be critical myself. God is working on me with that!!!

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers! I agree with #11 too, soooo frustrating.

    Take Care!

  5. My daughter and I watch Extreme Home Makeover and I don't know too many episodes we don't cry through the whole thing!
    Nice to meet you and thanks for the comment on my blog!

  6. Cathy: Thank you for stopping by my blog! It was a sweet deacon's wife who helped me with the "drop-in" company issue. She told me that she loved me and was not there to see my house - she needed to see ME! It really hit home with me. And another time when I had been shopping with another pastor's wife I had this lesson hit home again. We had been shopping all afternoon, and when I dropped her off at her house I asked her if I could use the restroom before driving myself on home, and she told me no! She said her house was not clean enough for me to come in... I told her it did NOT matter, but she would not let me in and I NEEDED to come in... Anyway, that hit home with me and I decided to relax over the whole issue - plus I really do try to keep the kitchen and living room "picked up, " and this motivates me. I don't have little ones at home any more, so it is much easier.

    God bless you,

  7. Yes they will fit... yes they will fit... you keep hanging on to them. LOL

    Nice to meet you too!

  8. This was a lot of fun :) Very nice meeting you too.

  9. That was fun! I'll have to try and throw something together and join in!

  10. Hello fellow freaker. So glad you stopped by my blog. I enjoyed reading your answers!



  11. What a great idea for a meme! That was neat.

    I'm glad to hear you freak when the doorbell rings, cuz I know I sure do. My house is never 'company ready'. I always need 20 minutes, and then it can look fabulous. Just don't dare open that utility room door.... ha ha ha

  12. lolahaha...you were late because you were reading scavenger posts??!! i feel so guilty!! in a hysterical kind of way of course..:))

  13. Fun reading, nice to 'meet' you.

  14. Hi Cathy! Anytime I watch Extreme Home Makeover, I boo-hoo like a baby! It gets me every time!!

  15. I, too, love Extreme Home Makeover...can I enter it for myself?


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
