About Me

Thanks for stopping by my blog! First of all let me tell you why I chose the name The Things I Ponder. I am a thinker, I am always asking questions; so this blog is my way of working out some of my questions using God's word. I don't always have answers, but I will always have questions!

I am wife to an amazing man...Brian. We have been married for 26 years. We live in northern Minnesota, and when I say northern...I mean northern...Canada just 10 miles away! Brian is a pastor, which makes me a pastor's wife...but I prefer to think of myself as just Brian's wife!

Brian and I have been blessed with three children. I was blessed by Brian to stay home with our kids and also had the privilege to homeschool them.  Ashley is our oldest, she is  married to a wonderful man, Larry. Larry is attending Gordon Conwell Seminary. They have a sweet little girl named Ellie.  Abby is our middle child, she is married to Josh. They are currently interns at an amazing camp in Wisconsin for a year. Our youngest is Caleb, he is married to Brittany. They are both in their junior year of college in the Twin Cities.

Being a grandma is the BEST!

The most important thing about me is that I love Jesus more than anything. I pray the words in this blog would bring Him glory and honor!!
