Hi! I'm Bridgette
My name is Bridgette Guest and I have been married to my main squeeze for 19 years. We have two biological children, Isabella (13) and Mason (9), and two other children who have been in our home for the past two-and-a-half years- Braylon (5) and Libby (3). I have a BS in Biology and Chemistry, an ORT degree to assist in surgeries, and Master’s in Theology from NOBTS and Liberty University Theological Seminary. However, right now you can find me sitting at the kitchen table, or the sunroom, homeschooling my children.
Sometimes I think we live on the crazy train. Just know that if I invited you into my house there would be no Joanna Gaines white couch, there are probably stinky cleats on the porch, and more than likely the boys have left the toilet seat up again, for the hundredth time, in the main bathroom.
I am a minimalist by choice. I believe that less is more, and it drastically lowers the stress for the mom of the house. I am also a little bit of a health nut. Several years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. It was basically leaving me unable to go and do the things I loved. I met a holistic doctor and he set me on a path with new food, and a love for natures healing power. I have never looked back! I love my supplements, organic foods, and all things green! We are also a family who loves the outdoors. We enjoy camping, swimming, canoeing, biking, and hiking.
The two non-biological children in our home have been our largest faith builder yet. They originally were supposed to live with us for three weeks, until another home could be secured. My husband and I were not foster parents, or a potential adopting family. The foster system was so overwhelmed there simply weren’t enough homes. Because of our jobs, Minister of children and policemen, we had already been background checked thoroughly, so they were allowed in our home after a quick inspection. Three weeks turned into months, and months turned into years, and here we are. They are still not adoptable at this time, and we are unable to receive any financial assistance for them since we are not technically foster parents. This has been a deep trial in our life that has summoned every bit of faith, courage, and discipline that we possess. It has taught our whole family so many things about finding God faithful, even when you don’t see the plan!
Well that is a little about us in a nutshell. We are just a regular, well semi-regular, family trying to make God first in our life. I am constantly trying to create margin to make sure we have time for all the important things in our life. I hope you join me to dig into God’s word and all He has to teach us from our very own lives! I am a firm believer that God teaches us some of the best lessons in the little things!
