Who Am I?

I am a wife to Trevor and mother of eight sweet girls and three precious little boys.  Seven were born into our family, and four came to us through adoption.  They are (listed here by request of a faithful reader):

Philippa Violet (Pippa)  (2004)

Romilly Alice (2006)

Nikolai Dickson (Niko) (2006, adopted 2012)

Delphinia Mary (Delia) (2006, adopted 2013)

Thaddeus Merit (Teddy) (2006, adopted 2017)

Lewis Christian (2007, adopted 2015)

Beatrix Joanna (2007)

Juniper Lucy (2009)

Coraline Audrey (2011)

Annis Octavia (2014) and

Verity Laine (2016)

I am happily staying at home looking after and homeschooling my little ones and writing this blog to keep myself out of mischief.  I am also a Christian, and it is my prayer that my thoughts here would be a blessing to those who read them (at least most of the time!)  Thanks for stopping by!

Who Am I? (by Casting Crowns)

Not because of who I am.
But because what of You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I’m calling,
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling,
And You told me who I am:

I am Yours.

  1. Hey Jodi
    Now I see why the Young Pages haven’t been updated for a while. I love your blog and looking forward to reading more of it when I get a few moments. Still missing you all loads. Feeling inspired though by what you have written and what other link pages are saying. Thanks, speak soon. Love to everyone.

  3. Hi,

    I would very much like to ask you a question and was wondering if it would be possible to contact you by email? Your family is beautiful and you are all so inspiring, many blessings to each and every one of you.

    Thanks so much,

  4. I am hoping to adopt a little man that looks a lot like Niko, and is suspected to have the same syndrome. Would love to chat with you privately.
