I am a Christ follower. Wife to Justin Mercer Kates and mama to Libby Shea-born July 19, 2012. Lover of all things family. Game nights are the best. Quality time with people is my fave. Being in the mountains reminds me of how majestic my God is. Sunsets and Sunrises remind me how beautiful he is. Also,I may or may not love my dog Pepper a little too much-although poor thing has fallen down on the love scale ever since Libby arrived!
