Mrs. H here! Or you can just call me Abby. We don’t have to be so formal.

So you want to know a little about me and family, uh?


Mr. H is a great guy who, as our daughter puts it, “saves the day!” He loves God, us and country. He’s a handyman. He’s smart. He’s good lookin’. He’s funny. He’s patient – a good thing too for my sake! We have known each other for over half of our lives. Only guy I ever dated. Only guy I ever loved.


Norah Shiloh is our very precocious oldest girl. She keeps us on our toes, yet her heart is filled with compassion for others. She loves all things pink, purple and girly. Making a craft is always on her mind. She is constant words and usually pretty funny ones.

Garrett Russell is our very lovable little dude. He is kind and sweet. He loves all things Thomas the Train and dinosaurs. He has a chipped front tooth and loves to wrestle with Daddy. He is goofy and silly and loves his sisters with a brother’s protective heart.

Ava Everly is our sweet and sassy little toddler. She has a mad crush on me – the feeling is mutual. She loves to eat. She is usually sucking on her left pointer finger. She loves books beyond reason.

Gretchen Marlow is the newest member of our family. So far, she loves eating and sleeping. 🙂 We are eager to see her little personality emerge.

I am a Christian. I love God and want to follow Him, though I often fail. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ. I know where I am going when I leave this earth – do you?

I have the privilege to stay home with my children, thanks to my very supportive husband who works so very hard to make it possible. I love it. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but with my kids.

I love spending time with my husband. I love spending time with my family. I love all things food. I love quilting and crafting and cooking and baking. I love the wonderfully ordinary life I live.
