Many of the blogs that I enjoy are written by people that I have never met.  However, Joyful Maiden is an exception.  I grew up with Esther's mom, and my husband worked with her dad for a couple of years.  Several years ago her family moved to New Zealand, and we now keep up with one another's lives via blogs, and the occasional email.  She is doing an interview on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to join.

Question 1: Give us your name (not last name for safety reasons), age (optional), location, hobbies, interests, etc. Basically, introduce yourself! :)
My name is Rebecca, I'm 33 years old, and I live in midwestern Michigan.  I am a mom to two adopted sons--9 & 7, and 2 foster sons--2 & 1 (whom we are currently adopting), and one foster daughter--1 month old.  I enjoy taking care of my family, reading, blogging, sewing, and gardening.

Question 2: How did you become born again?
I was in a church service where the pastor was preaching about Jesus' death and crucifixion.  I realized that my sins were a part of the pain He endured, and I responded to the invitation that was given at the end of the service.  I was ten years old. 

Question 3: What is your current walk with the Lord like?
He is my reason for living!  I wouldn't make it through one day without Him!

Question 4: How do you help and serve your family?
Well, I am a teacher, bus driver, foster mom, chef, housekeeper, conflict resolver, cheerleader, counselor, etc.................

Question 5: How do you serve others?
I try to be an encourager through my blog.

Question 6: What are some of your favourite things?
My family, reading, and chocolate. :)

Question 7: What are some of your struggles?
I struggle daily with patience, and with finding a balance between my schedule, and real life.

Question 8: What encouragement do you have to give?
My grandma once told me "now is the best time of your life--enjoy it"  I think this could apply to any age or stage in life.
