About me

Occupation Stay at Home Mom, part-time chiropractor
Location Battle Creek, Michigan, United States
Introduction I’m so glad you stopped by. My name is Carol. I am a Jesus-adoring, husband-loving, blessed mama of 5, back-adjusting, scrapbooking, quilt-making, furniture painting, friend appreciating, blog writing, recipe making, dessert lovin’, Jersey born, Michigan-living kind of girl. I love going to church and serving alongside some of the best people I know. Traveling is one of my passions and I hope to do it more. I started “Joy in the Journey” about 9 years ago when I lived in England. We moved back in 2010 and life has changed in a few ways; well, it got busier. Join me as I share about life in our home, what it means to have 2 kids at Michigan State University and 3 in high school. We stay busy with the high schoolers in 3 different sports. Austin is a junior, Braaten is a freshman, Melanie is a junior in high school, and Grant and Cooper are freshman.
Interests Spending time with my family, going to church and serving, watching my kids play sports, quilting, scrapbooking, and reading.
Favorite Movies Sleepless in Seattle, Facing the Giants (I cried 6 times), Fireproof, Fly Wheel, and Courageous to name a few.
