Who Is Cookie Crumb Fun?
WHO AM I?
Well, that is a long story. If any of us were to share who we are it would take pages to talk about. Instead of going back 40 years and boring you with unimportant details, I am going to jump into today. Who am I today? Grab Your coffee, tea, smoothie, GGMS or water and find out!!!!
I AM A WIFE
My husband & I met while attending Bible college. We were set up by mutual friends. Thanks , Ron & Melanie! We laughed our entire first date and continued laughing all through our dating relationship. Many ups and downs through college days but we made it. We were married in June of 1996. YES, 20 yrs ago & we still enjoy being around each other. So, I am a wife.
I AM A MOTHER
I had my first child at the age of 27. We choose to wait until after college to have children, then the Lord had us wait a little bit longer. Then every 2 years we had another baby. The Lord blessed us with 5 boys. It was always fun with them. Then babies 6 & 7 came…little girls! Oh the joy and surprise they brought. We are blessed!! In 12 years we had 7 children. My youngest was born the day after my oldest turned 12. So, I am a mother.
I AM A HOMESHCOOL MOM
We have homeschooled exclusively for 12 yrs. In those years we have tried & loved & disliked many different curriculums. We finally found what works for us and it is A.C.E. We used it to teach 3 or our boys to read and they make it so fun for the little ones. We do not have a school room. We use our dining room table and the couch and a desk and the floor and another desk. We are relaxed and they get the work done each day. So, I am a homeschool mom.
I AM A PASTORS WIFE
My husband was called of God to start a church. In Oct. of 2015 we left NY & moved to California to begin that journey. I will share in more detail in another post about that. On March 27, 2016, the doors to Lighthouse Baptist Church were opened. My husband is my pastor. He is being used of God here. I wish you could come and hear him preach. God has been so good to us!! So, I am a pastors wife.
I AM A TRIM HEALTHY MAMA
I first heard about THM just before baby #7 turned one. I didn’t give it much thought. Then about 5 months later I saw the success of a friend on THM and took the plunge. I began in the middle of March of 2014. I went in 100% and lost 43# in 9 months. My husband saw my success and joined me. He lost over 90# in about 6 months. We continue to eat the THM way today. It is NOT a diet it is a lifestyle. We changed the way we eat and keep our bodies healthy. THM is a low carb sugar free way of eating. I highly recommend this way of eating. There is a book to buy and read that is worth every penny. We have gained some weight back from different stresses that have been brought into our lives but we are currently working at losing those pounds. So, I am a Trim Healthy Mama.
I AM A YOUTUBER
In August of 2016 I began to faithfully make videos on my channel. I named it Claire at Cookie Crumb Fun. I started to share on our homeschool then went into day in the life videos. I have then since changed to many subjects. Homeschool, THM, grocery hauls, big family living, our church and thankfulness. I have found new friends and have received so many blessings through YouTube. It has been a fun journey. I have learned so much while making videos. I try my best to improve each day. I think you can see the difference from my first few videos to the more recent ones. Wow!!! I am more comfortable behind camera and my children love to steal the show. Ha Ha! Look for me there. Videos are post many times each week. It has been so much fun sharing on there. So, I am a YouTuber.
This is just a quick and basic “Who am I?”. I hope you enjoyed learning about my family & myself. I will be sharing my YouTube videos on here and other things along the way. I pray you find it all a blessing. Please consider signing up through email to receive each post in your inbox. Also please subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notifications of new videos.
Thank you and be a blessing.
