Married to the Ministry

One of my favorite blogs - The Preacher's Wife - is hosting a scavenger hunt for those ladies who are married to the ministry (M2M). Here are my answers to her questions.

The Treasures:
  • First name - Jen
  • State and country of residence - Currently Pennsylvania...but soon it will be Australia!
  • Husband's ministry title - Missionary/Pastor
  • Length of time in current ministry location - Not there yet, still waiting on visas!
  • Children? - 2, Autumn (almost 7) and Cody (almost 2)
  • Number of unique home in which you've lived during your marriage - We've lived in 6 homes since we've been married...not sure if that's unique!
  • Cook Sunday lunch or eat out - I love to make a pot roast in the crock pot, that way it's ready when we walk in the door after church, but I also loving going to Cracker Barrel after church!
  • Typically on time for Sunday School or not - Well, since we still do a lot of traveling and my husband is usually the speaker, we're on time!
  • Favorite TV show - Currently it's The Office
  • Something you watch/like/do that you would never tell the church people - Probably that I watch The Office!!
  • Most annoying church-related pet peeve - During the song service when people just sing with no meaning
  • One thing you need to throw away but can't bring yourself to do - Clothing that is too small...please tell me I'm not the only one!!
  • The one food you can't live without - Tacos and, can I add, Mountain Dew!
  • Parsonage or have your own home - Well, we live in a home provided by one of our supporting churches, but once we get on the field we'll have our own home
  • Freak when the doorbell rings or always ready for a visitor - I love having people into our home!

Also, The Preacher's Wife, Lisa recently wrote a book. I believe it will hit bookstores next February. Can't wait to read this one. Here is a trailor for the book...

Ok, I almost said old clothes that don't fit but then I remembered that a few weeks ago, I gave them away! But I did hold onto them for longer than I should have!

Australia will be amazing, I'm sure!

We are going to Australia on Dec. 17 for almost 4 weeks. My hubby is taking his first ever sabbatical. We can't wait. We've been saving our FF miles for 20 years so our whole fam is flying free.

What will you be doing there?
