About Me

          My family


Welcome to Our Abundant Blessings!

My name is Laurie and I’ve been blessed to be Toby’s wife for 22 years now. He is truly my better half and I couldn’t have picked a more perfect mate for myself. I’m glad that God chose him for me and hand-delivered him to me. I went on my first date ever at age 19, with him. He was my first date and is my forever date. :)  

Together, we’ve been incredibly blessed to be the parents of 5 awesome children.

Rebecca is our oldest at 19. She is our first homeschool graduate and graduated in March, 2012 from Paul Mitchell, The School. She is currently working at CVS while figuring out exactly what she’d like to do with her life. She is well-loved by her boss, who doesn’t want her to ever leave.
Thomas is our only son and is 17. He has wide and varied interests and skills. He is an incredibly capable young man. He is currently awaiting taking the GED test so that he can formally complete his education and then move onto the next phase of life.
Next is our tender-hearted Natalie who is 13. Natalie loves ALL animals and her biggest desire is to have an animal shelter one day. With her grit and determination, I have no doubt she will make that happen.
Mary is our youngest at 9 years old. She is our entertainer, always singing and dancing. She keeps us laughing and reminds us to slow down and enjoy life.
Our fifth babe is with Jesus. We were blessed to carry him (I say him because we had hoped for another son) for 11 precious weeks before Jesus called him home. 

I’ve been blogging since 2005. Previously, I blogged at  Abundant Blessings and Abundant Blessings Farm. This year, I’ve decided to take my blogging to the next level and have my own domain, instead of being an extension of another blog server. I’m glad you’ve stopped by my home on the web and I hope you’ll be a frequent visitor!

Please feel free to contact me either via a blog post comment or e-mailing me at laurie@ourabundantblessings.com.
