Personal Statement

My name is Amber, stay at home mother of five.

In my journey in life I have learned many things, (and have alot more to learn and alot more of the journey left!), but one of the most important things I have learned is NEVER SAY NEVER. Ever since I can remember all I wanted to be in life was a wife and mother, I always wanted to get married right out of high school and raise a family. After graduating high school, I never had a boyfriend, or anyone interested, so I thought to myself, "I will never be married until I am 30!". I was so discouraged, and gave up on my dream to meet the right man right after high school, figuring that it just wasn't in God's plan for me, just then God brought me the biggest gift, my dear husband, meeting him was the best thing that ever happened to me, but it also opened up the door to my NEVER SAY NEVER motto.

I never wanted to marry a man with a large family out of state, he has 7 siblings, and they all live outside of my state, except one. I never wanted to move away from Colorado, about 6 months after my husband and I were dating we moved to Pennsylvania. 

Kids reinforce this motto almost daily, "he will never learn to use the potty" (now he does), "she will never sleep through the night" (now she does). 

So to sum up what I have learned as a wife and mother, never say never, God opens so many unexpected doors, and even the ones you don't want to walk through, or that take you our of your comfort zone end up being wonderful experiences, don't cheat yourself out of them!
