Buna! I'm glad you took a look at my blog today. I thought I would give you "a little picture" of my life.
My name is Elisabeth. I have been redeemed by my awesome Saviour, Jesus Christ. He is such a good God and always with me: never has left me yet. I am 20, an adoring aunt to an awesome niece, a bit crazy, a loner by extremes, a little sarcastic, and sometimes I'm just a grump. I just started my first year of college at Bethlehem College and Seminary where 4 of my sibling have gone before me. I get a bit stressed with school; actually, I really didn't want to come here, didn't want to go to college at all. But I am here now, I've met new people, made new friends, and best of all, God is still with me. I am the 7th child of two wonderful, Christian parents, and I live in the state of Minnesota. I have 4 older brothers (one, Micah, died a little over 10 years ago because of leukemia shortly before his 16th Birthday) and 4 sisters.
I love the woods, the hills and creeks, the wild animals, the birds and squirrels, the deer, but more than all that, I love my God the great Creator of them all. I love to hike in all of His beauty. Now that I am in the bustling city of Minneapolis, I love and miss that country glory more than ever. I love to be with the people God made and have fun. A "few" other things I like or enjoy are the following: poetry, cooking, real music, playing the piano, drawing, my family, friends, writing, taking pictures, etc.
I have a desire to be a missionary to Romania. I have been to the poor yet beautiful country of Haiti three times as a missionary. I have grown to love the people, the land, and the food, and after this third time, I have felt a strong call to this people, but we shall see just what God has planned.
This blog is for God, you, and my family.
I hope you are encouraged, enjoy some laughs, and enjoy the beauty of God's creation through my blog.
This is me with my sisters: Bethany, me, Lydia, and Hannah. (I also have Priscilla, but she was not around for this picture.)
My awesome family.
Left to right:
Josiah (29) with his wife Cindy and daughter Johanna, Bethany (almost 19!), Lydia (12), Gabriel's wife Emily and Gabriel (25), Mom, me, Hannah (24), Jesse (almost 31!) and his girlfriend Annaliese, Priscilla (22) and Justus, and Dad. .
Do you think I have enough awesome in my life?

Since the last family picture was taken, my sister, Priscilla got married to Justus.
