Hello and Welcome!
You have landed at Aroma of Joy and I hope you will enjoy your visit! Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you a little about who I am.
My name is Kelley and I have lived in the Kansas City area all of my life. I am married to a wonderful man who loves me in spite of myself and together we are raising 7 children.
About those children, here is the FAQ:
1) yes they are all ours
2) yes I gave birth to all of them
3) no there are no twins
4) yes I know what causes that
5) yes we are done
Actually the best question I was ever asked was by my little girls school counselor:
"So, did your husband's first wife die?"......
I had to think about that for a minute......I am his first wife!
The next question people usually ask is, "Do you work outside the home?"
Well, yes and no. I serve outside the home. I am the Associate Teaching Director (ATD) of a Community Bible Study(CBS) class. It doesn't pay monetarily but I believe I am building my bank account above! My children like to say they will be driving their "ghetto cars" past my mansion in heaven some day!
Through my role as ATD at CBS I have begun writing devotions & speaking to women through teaching lectures. As a result of this experience I have discovered a purpose in my life beyond being daughter, wife, mother......So as I teach my little birds how to fly, I too am testing my wings!
Oh, did you ask about my leisure time? Well besides grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, cleaning and driving kids all over....
I love to read, go to the gym, travel, work on my bible study and of course go shopping! I also love visiting with old friends as well as make new ones so please come back often. Oh, and don't forget to let me know you stopped by!
