My husband and I have 15 children. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. Ten of them are roaming the earth; four are in Heaven; and one is still brewing in the pot. Of those we have the privilege of raising we have five boys and five girls. Hence the name: Going to Overtime. Our tie breaker will be here in six short weeks. For the past three years I’ve been telling everyone we were done. Sara Lynn was born two weeks before I turned 45. I mean, women that age didn’t have children, did they? And here I am again, having just celebrated by 48th birthday and pregnant. Wow! That’s insane. Well, maybe. I consider it a miracle. And so to give the Glory to God I have created this blog spot to share with you that ordinary people can do great things. Not that I’ve consider myself to have done anything great. Just that God has chosen to do great things through us. So, get ready, get set, let’s Go to overtime.

Can’t wait to to meet the tie breaker and follow your journey.
You two are truly blessed!
We wish we coulda had more littles to raise, but alas it weren’t The Lord’s will.
You are an amazing woman of God united to a wonderful man of God. May The Lord continue to watch over you and your posse.
You crack me up and inspire me at the same time. I am so amazed at how you juggle things. I used to go crazy when we would have 6 at one time while we were fostering. Will be fun to keep following your journey. Hugs my sweet friend!
You are a LOVEly mom! Much braver than I ever would be… I hope I get to tutor more of your flock someday! Do you know what the tiebreaker will be? Are you keeping it a secret?
You are so sweet! Thank you…we do not know the baby’s gender. ‘Tis a secret. Five weeks and counting.
Lovely read, you are a beautiful family! Thanks so much for your honest joy!
