Hi, my name is Shari Lynne! I am a stay at midlife wife, Mom, Step Mom, Grandma! Whew, that’s a mouthful.
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the state of Washington! I have been married for 30 years and have 7 children (3 still at home). I also have 6 beautiful grandchildren. Two of which I get to babysit everyday:) Yeah, for me! (that’s my only claim to fame)
I’m a crazy recipe creator and LOVE to cook up snacks and delicious meals for my family on a very limited budget! I also LOVE to build up Moms/Women in there faith walk…because it’s a hard one sometimes!
More about me? For starters I can tell you that we are a blended family. When my husband and I got married, 30 years ago, he had two children and I had two children. Ages 9, 10, 11, 12.
When our older children were almost all grown and out of the house (all except one) my husband began to suggest that we have children together. WHAT! I thought he was kidding. But after he mentioned it several times I began to realize that he was serious.
So I began to pray about it. I really felt that God did not want me to keep this area from my husband. I thought God was kidding too! But I knew in my heart what God was asking of me.
I was pretty young, 36, So with much more prayer I gave in to God and my Husband. And as Martha Stewart would say “It’s a Good Thing”
Oh there was just One little problem, my tubes were tied. They had been tied for SIXTEEN years. Miraculously God provided the finances for a tubal reversal. After I had my tubal reversal guess what, 2 months later I was pregnant with Noah….then Anna…then Sarah.
So now at 55 I am a blessed Midlife Mom to Many. Joey is 35, Michelle is 34, Marcy is 33, Chrystal is 32. Noah is now 16, Anna 14 and Sarah 11.
Another part of my journey that I feel compelled to share and encourage others about is that I have been in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction for 30 years. I feel very called to share that there can be joy and real life in sobriety. That God does indeed restore the years the locusts have eaten away!
