My name is Kristen Self, mommy of three and wife to Chris "Honey" Self. I used to think I was defined by where I worked, what I wore, and who I was friends with. Now I know nothing is more rewarding then staying home with my kids, lovin my honey, working on my photography, and following the word of my savior. I hope you will follow the exciting, blessed and sometimes sad events that come though this world around me. Enjoy all of the photos provided by myself. Look forward to reading all of your feedback as well.
My dedicated husband, soul mate, and father to our babies. Met in 1989,married since 2003, our happiness is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Honey is the most virtuous man on Earth, he has developed patience and a terrific work ethic. I know this love of ours will continue to grow and blossom until we are brought before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Our 1st born baby is the life of the party, he excels in every sport he plays, LOVES the 2nd grade and may be a little bit of a Mama’s boy. Can you blame the kid, he has been joined at my hip since August of '00.
Olivia is the princess and the only baby girl in the house. When the ball gown comes off she loves sports, dancing and this lil lady can throw a tea party like no other. We were blessed with her big baby blues in March of '05.
The baby of the family, he is so sweet, a dancer, and singer. We are loving all of the new words he is learning and watching him explore everything. Liam completed our family in October 2007.

It was a beautiful day, and God made Himself present in amazing ways. The flowers everyone sent were so pretty, she would have loved them. There are a lot of moments I will treasure from today, and I will share more with you as time goes by. Along with many many thank yous.
This gorgeous arrangement came from The Alabama Selfs! They were so pretty, I loved all the colors. Thanks you guys, we miss you.
These beautiful flowers were sent from The City of Phoenix. Lila, my mother-in-law works for the city. Thank you City of Phoenix!
Such a pretty bright yellow bouquet that worked out perfect in the front of the church. They were from Channel 12, were Matt (Jessica's husband) works. This was very generous and I can't thank you enough.
I wanted to share some photos with those who couldn't make it today. I will post a "thank you" list shortly. I am so humbled by the way people came out of the wood work to donate money/food for the lunch. Some people had never even met Jess, they had just heard about what a wonderful person she was.
This is the table I put together with black and white pictures of Jessica, candles and photo matte that the guests signed. This photo matte will also be signed at the California memorial as well.
I know for me it is so easy to just play things over and over from the hospital, and I am asking the Lord to simply erase the hard parts and help us to cling to who she was. Show us the Glory of your dwelling place.
I want to thank you in advance for the way I know you will lift us up in prayer, and know it will sustain us in the coming days.
With much love, and more gratitude than I can articulate, Kristen
