My name is Mindy. I’m 36, the second of four kids and the product of two amazing parents: Ken and Donna Albrecht.
My parents weren’t perfect. Just ask ’em. But they were purposeful in what they did. They loved the Lord and committed their marriage, their kids, and their time to God. My dad owned a small business and my mom stayed home with us. They looked for opportunities to spend one-on-one time with each of us and encouraged us to set goals for our future. Much of my passion and heart for the Lord is directly because of these two.
They set a high standard, that’s for sure. I had been hoping to find a man that would be the leader of our home, but honestly didn’t know if a man of that caliber existed.
And then I met Andrew.
He thinks I’m exaggerating when I say that I didn’t believe in Love at First Sight until the day I met him. But I’m not. The moment I saw him walking down the halls of the middle school where I was in my third year of teaching sixth grade, I wanted to know him. The story of how God brought us together is a beautiful one, and a testament to our Creator’s interest in the details!
I am so grateful to have had the foresight of choosing him as the father of my children!
When I’m not cleaning up spills, doing laundry or running Jack to karate and baseball, I enjoy photography, crafts, sewing, organizing and anything DIY. And writing. And teaching. And encouraging.
And most of all, I enjoy the honor of having my little humans call me “Mom.”
