Just getting started

So I decided to try out this blog thing......Hoping I can get the hang of it!  So I am Beth. I am 35 yrs old and live in Milwaukee, Wi. I have been married for 14 yrs to my best friend Dean, and we have 3 children together. Ally who is 13, Catey who is 11, and Bobby who is 7.5 yrs old. Catey and Bobby have special needs.....Catey has ADHD and Sensory integration and Bobby has Aspergers and Sensory integration dysfunction. Keeps us busy here!! I learn lots from my children on a daily basis. I am also disabled so I am a SAHM. My husband has a wonderful job at Quad. We are very blessed to have this job!! He is hitting the 5 yr mark with Quad, the longest he has worked anywhere!

I love to read. The first series of books I remember reading was the Little House on the Prairie set. I loved them. After that it was Anne of Green Gables series. I remember reading the Sweet Valley High Twins books, teen age love stories from book orders.......Then on to Danielle Steele. Eventually I got tired of love stories I started reading John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, Janet Evanovich, Kathy Reichs, and lots of others I can't remember at this time. I have recently started reading Christian Fiction books and I LOVE THEM!!  I started with Neta Jackson's series called Yada Yada Prayer Group, the best series I have read. Totally addicting and just wonderful. I have really gotten into books about Amish families. They are fiction but I find myself in their world when I read them. I love reading Beth Wiseman, Wanda Brunstetter, and Beverly Lewis to name a few. I also enjoy the Janette Okes books. I am so blessed that my husband has no issues with me buying all my books and I am very lucky that when I finish reading them I get to donate them to our library at our church to share with others!!!
