Sylvia’s story starts here, above all, I am a Christian. I am a truth seeker, a compulsive researcher, and a follower of Jesus.
I don’t always get life right but thank God, I don’t have to.
Christ is my salvation. He is my strength, my comfort, my refuge, and my hope. In Him, I can do all things, and without Him I am nothing.
Grace is one of my favorite subjects. Life is hard and busy, and never like we expect it to be, but God’s grace is sufficient. Join me as I learn to recognize and appreciate God’s amazing grace in everyday life.
I am married to my best friend, and together we have a blended family of 6 completely beautiful daughters, and 12 perfectly adorable grandchildren.
My Hubby works construction and travels all over the country with his job. When I became an empty-nester, (our youngest decided to go to college in another state) my husband said: “quit your job and come with me on the road.” So, I packed a suitcase, a few crafts items, and went on the road with the love of my life. Ok, maybe it was more than just a few craft items, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do!
We decided to buy an RV, after a year of traveling, 11 states, and more hotels than we could count. We are loving our tiny home on the road, and are discovering America as we travel from job to job. This life feeds my gypsy spirit! An article about that decision can be found under the RV Life tab.
Most days you can find me in a campground somewhere in this amazing country. We especially like to take jobs in the South, near the coast. I love the beach, it’s my happy place. Shelling on America’s coastlines is one of my favorite past times. There is usually a funky, beachy craft swirling around in my head that includes some of my collected sea treasures.
My life is pretty busy with all my DIY and craft projects. I am a chronic crafter and have 1000s of ideas just waiting to manifest themselves into something beautiful.
I am a completely obsessed genealogist and have been researching my family tree for over 30 years, always in search of that elusive ancestor. Helping adoptees and birth families find each other has been a passion of mine for many years. I have played a part in reuniting several families. Genetic genealogy (DNA) is one of my favorite new research tools. DNA just does not lie!
My latest subject of interest is health and nutrition. I have been studying non-toxic living and natural remedies. My interest in natural remedies is relatively new and was necessitated by my own medical issues. While, I am not opposed to Western, traditional medicine, I do actively search for more natural ways to heal whenever possible. I believe it is no accident that so many plants have medicinal value. I find it fascinating that many of our diseases and illnesses can be corrected by changing our diets.
This project is about life, and love, and adventure. It’s about sharing what I learn along the way. Welcome to this blog where you will find articles about subjects that bring joy to my journey.
