Hello. My name is Zoe and I’m glad that you are here, which will amaze me always. I have a sense of humor but it is often hard to discern, which is sad. I have compensated by marrying a man who is filled with laughter and who always has a silly joke at hand. I also have a zillion goofy pictures of Darrell as he is a good sport about getting his picture taken when he does strange things. Maybe I can get his permission to post a collection. Start asking…
I am often accused of being a perfectionist. “type A” or whatever your personality assessment of choice calls an overachiever with perfectionist inclinations. I am straight-forward (I blame this on my Montana upbringing). I am a bit jealous of my husband’s more free-wheeling spirit.
I am truly passionate about:
- My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ I was saved by Christ’s mercy and grace on my wedding day, August 3, 1995. While standing in front of my mom’s pastor, our family, and friends Christ delivered me from a lifetime of church attendance and mental understanding of God to a relationship with Him. A sinner I will always be; a sinner saved by grace on Christ’s cross, adopted into the family of God, and blessed with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
- My husband Darrell. Darrell leads worship at Redemption Church in Missoula, Montana and is a salesman at Axmen. We live about 45 miles down the valley at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in gorgeous Hamilton, MT. Darrell is an incredible pianist of the jazz persuasion (of course there is no bias here). He played professionally in Reno, Las Vegas, and throughout the Nevada music circuit for years. He then took us off to seminary in Louisville, KY just two weeks after we adopted our twins. He has been in ministry ever since. Please take a stop over at his blog Sufficient for Life where he walks through the pages of scripture.
- My four “monkeys” better known as my kids. All four adopted through state foster care systems. All four a blessing in our lives. We adopted our fraternal twin daughters in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 2002. Later came our son (yeah…a chance to have a little boy in the house) and our third daughter. They were adopted in Hamilton, Montana, June 2014.
- Books, books, and more books. I love them and I always have. I enjoy a wide variety of genres from which I flip-flop back and forth. I couldn’t resist starting a blog sharing what I find to be the positives and negatives of books that I have read. I write the way that I think and who knows if it makes sense to anyone but me. Let me know.
God bless and happy reading!
