About Katie

Hi! I’m Katie. I live in Paradise (tropical Mexico) and am determined to sing my Lord’s praises each day. I’m so glad you stopped by! I hope you will subscribe, so I can send some encouragement your way 3-4 times a week. I’ll be sharing encouraging thoughts and helpful information in the areas of Marriage, Motherhood (Homeschooling), & Ministry.

So, besides my name, where I live, and what I write, what else would you like to know? 

I imagine myself to be the proud owner of a pet elephant who paints, and a librarian of a ginormous library (see the ones that inspire me here!). But in real life, I am daughter by adoption to the King of Heaven and the best friend, traveling and learning companion, and lover to my missionary husband, Hero, since 2003.

I am also mother, cook, story teller, housecleaner, nurse, cuddler and teacher to five wonderful children whom we call Butterfly, Flower, Sir, Taz & Sunshine (Read what I love about each of them).

We are a missionary, home educating, hospitality loving family doing our best to glorify God as we live, work and minister in tropical Mexico (You can visit our family website here.)

I am also a writer and a speaker with passions for encouraging women in their God-given roles, and for promoting the Christian homeschool movement in the Spanish speaking world. We host a bi-weekly radio show for Spanish speaking home educators, we are writing the Lemonhass Homeschool Curriculum for Spanish speakers; and I have also written a few short ebooks, and have contributed to several other places on the web:

Wishing you encouragement today, Love,
