The Treasures

The Treasures

1. First Name. Kelly
2. State and Country of Residence. Pender County, NC
3. Husband’s Ministry Title. Senior Pastor
4. Length of time in Current Ministry Location. {IMPORTANT: There are several of you who may not be in a current ‘official’ pastorate/ministry, etc. That makes you no less a minister’s wife! You play along, girlfriends, and let us pray for you!}
Going on 9 years. Almost a decade! Can’t believe how old everyone ELSE is getting!
5. Children? If yes, give gender and ages.
3 boys! 12, 10 and 6 My life is crazy to say the least.
6. Number of unique homes in which you’ve lived during your marriage.
LOL 3 the 2nd one was the church parsonage (not our current church) and the first week we killed 22 mice! Yeah, you read that right! TWENTY-TWO
7. Cook Sunday lunch or eat out? We do both. If I tell my husband we are having chicken casserole, we always go out! LOL Honestly, I haven’t cooked that in years.
8. Typically on time for Sunday School or not? LATE!!!! Always late! I’m so bad.
9. Favorite TV Show. Ummmmmmmm, should I admit this or not. Hmmmmm, ok people don’t judge me too bad, but I do love Desperate Housewives.
10. Something you watch/like/do that you would never tell the church people. (Except now you just did…lol) SEE ABOVE!
11. Most annoying church-related pet peeve. People who always gripe! I just run the other way. OR! People who think I’m the complaint department.
12. One thing you need to throw away but can’t bring yourself to do it. Ok, my husband could come up with a long list, but I can’t think of anything! Really, I can’t.
13. The one food you can not live without. Mexican food! Love it!
14. Parsonage or have your own home? It’s OURS!!! Our current church does not have a parsonage. So any mice we have now is our own fault.
15. Freak when the doorbell rings or always ready for a visitor? LOL FREAK! Refer to #5. Three boys. Is it just me, or what? But when my house is SPOTLESS nobody, I mean nobody comes! When it’s a disaster, they are beating my door down. Even the in-laws come! What’s up with that?



    I am so excited when a new PW blog is I am SO glad you are playing along! I worried that I had left you out...:)))

    And if it makes you feel better, I am consistently 5-7 minutes late for Sunday School every single week. I also have 3 boys (and a baby girl) so cut a girl some slack! lol

    Much love..L

  2. Lisa, I'm not the type to be left out for long! I keep telling my friends how shy I am, but they don't believe me.

    Technically, I'm not late for SS, I'm always late for our first service, but if I play my cards right I can come in when they shake hands and nobody notices. Right? LOL

  3. I am so with you on #15!!!! I almost said if my house is clean, welcome. If not, I don't answer the door!!! And DH is just as bad as Grey's Anatomy for me:)

  4. Hi- just popping in from the Scavenger hunt - it's nice to meet you!
    Ugh - 22 mice? That would be horrible!

  5. We did the whole mice thing in a parsonage one time, too. They are what prompted us to buy a home when we lived in KY....I finally just gave up and let the mice have the place!

    AND totally glad that someone else said they freak when someone comes to the door....I was beginning to feel like an outcast!

  6. I love me some mexican too!!!!
    I have 3 boys too but they have an older sis, who loves to be a little momma so she's a big help!!!!

    Enjoyed 'meeting' you!

  7. Sorry about the comment from Steven. I didn't realize I was signed in under my hubbies google id!

  8. Love your answers...looking forward to hearing more from you on your new blog!!

  9. Great job on your first post! Can't believe 22 rats!

  10. Hello Kelly. Nice to meet you. 22 mice?!? Not sure I could've handled that! We had 2 or 3 a couple years ago that about drove me crazy. lol

  11. Hi Kelly~ Nice to meet you... I'm still shaking my head over those 22 mice in one week! :-)

  12. Kelly, I thought I had already posted here, but I guess I saw the 22 mice and immediately had to share my story. :) That cracks me up about the chicken casserole. There are only so many ways to make chicken, right? Love the pic of your kids! So cute! Nice to "meet" you!

  13. Oh my gosh i'm so glad you shared about the mice! We just moved to my in laws old house and are staying here free for a bit until the parsonage is available and ummm yeah we have killed almost to that point... and don't get me started on the roaches!

    nice to meet you!

  14. Hi, I just found your blog through the preacher's wife and have enjoyed reading it. I can't believe the 22 mice!!! If you could survive that then you can survive the ministry!
