About Me


Hello, Welcome to my blog, Protecting The Seeds.  My name is Kathryn.  I am married to the love of my life, Andrew.  We will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in June 2015.  We have 3 children.

Our daughter Madison was born still on August 26, 1996, and is with Jesus.  There is not a day that goes by that we do not miss her beautiful face, her precious little nose, and the wonderful moments we got to hold and love on her before we had to let her go. 

Our son Parker was born on December 17, 1997.  He was born before his lungs were ready, so he spent his first 5 days in the NICU.  But, Praise God he got well, and came home with us.  He is now 17 years old, and is in the 11th grade.

Our daughter Morgan was born on September 9, 1999.  She is a bubbly, life-loving little girl.  We have some great mommy/daughter moments, and she is my best little helper.  She is now 15 years old, and is in the 10th grade.

We are a homeschooling family.  Last year we enrolled the kids in an online virtual academy through a school district north of us.  So far we are loving it.  I didn't feel qualified to teach the kids through high school so this is working out very well for us.

I am a musician.  I love to play for weddings, our church services each week, and sometimes have to play for funerals.  I am currently the music admin at our church.  I really enjoy that job!

I love to write, and have been told by several people that I should write Madison's story and the years following it.  I have a title already in my mind, I'm just waiting for God's leading in that adventure.

I LOVE photography!  It is my newest hobby.  My hubby bought me a really nice camera a few years ago, and I have really enjoyed putting it to use.  I've taken over all of our family photos, including the kids' school pictures.  I love to take candid, and scenery shots best, but I also like portraits.  I've used them for gifts, to hang in my home, and just for enjoyment looking at them.  They'll never win a contest, but they are special to me!

If you want to know anything else about me, feel free to ask!  I love blogging, and I love sharing what God has laid on my heart with you!  I hope you will stop by again!

Love, Kathryn
