About

Welcome to my little spot!

I’m Patricia PatMeyers – most people call me Pat. Or Miss Pat because of my years and years as a children’s minister. I use Patricia as my by line, but still, after years of speaking and writing as Patricia, when someone calls and asks “Is this Patricia?” I still feel like I’m in trouble (thanks Mom). But, we’re friends now — call me Pat.

My life is many-faceted. I hope yours is, too. Writer, speaker, children’s minister, wife, mom, grammie, office worker, knitter, cook, former home school mom. I love it all.

And I love the journey.  Well, most of the time! Sometimes life gets messy. But I have learned this: It’s more fun together!

 

Stuff I like . . .About2
I love whimsy. It has crept into most areas of my life. I love to travel. We haven’t done it nearly enough, but that is changing. I love to read, although I don’t do that nearly enough lately. I love to be with friends, I do that so much that I don’t have time to read. I love things to be in order, but I’m not great at it — I do try! I like to cook, especially for others. And I love to talk to children, they are so awesome and honest. I love meeting new people doesn’t matter if it is a server at a restaurant or a seller at a farmer’s market that I’ll only meet once. I just love it. One of my favorite things is to make others smile. And if I can make someone smile while drinking tea, all the better!

 

about3Little bit about me . . .
My husband, Dan, and I married young. He is funny, faithful, and true. We’ve laughed and cried together for a long time. We had three kids and had the most amazing times with them as they grew up. They are all married and we are collecting grandchildren at a rate of one a year. We just added #5 to the pile, 4 boys and 1 girl.

Another thing about me is that I am a blessed recipient of a new kidney. Kidney disease (like all other diseases) stinks. I am blessed and extremely grateful to be loving my God, my family, and my life because of the gift of another’s organ. Kinda cool, right?

 

My blog . . .about4

My life’s joy is helping people. For years I served as a children’s director and had the delight of serving the families in the church as well as the volunteer team that ministered with me. Over the past 12 years I have been assisting children’s ministers across the country with training, materials, and encouragement. The same is true with home school moms (I schooled my last two through high school). I find myself helping with cooking, parenting, coping with “life” and all kinds of other stuff. And I love it. There is nothing like bringing comfort to someone. I sure have been a receiver of encouragement and comfort through the years! (Including last week!) So, if I can help you feel encouraged, that would be a blessing.

 

Don’t be a stranger! Comment, question, answer back. This journey of life is more fun as a group tour! P.S. this is my oldest grandchild. the picture is a couple years old, but I just love it, so I wanted to share it with you.
