Welcome, I’m Vicki. I have been married to Rob for 16 years and we have 3 children, ages 7 (twins) and 10. I’ve been a full-time SAHM for the past 5 years and prior to that worked part-time in the medical field. I created a small gourmet preserves business in 2013, MESSMAKERBAKER GOURMET PRESERVES, LLC. I currently run this business from our home in rural, northwest Ohio. Our life, as a family of 5, is filled with joy, challenges, laughter, and all of the realities life can bring. This space will never be used to hide that reality. Instead, I hope to create a space that will encourage you with words, recipes to fill you up, a few of my favorite things, and more than anything, a relaxed atmosphere that will leave you anticipating the next post. More importantly, I believe that God sent His son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins so we may have eternal life with Him (John 3:16). If you get one thing from this space, my hope for you would be to leave this Earth with the knowledge and acceptance of Christ as your one and only Savior.
