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.

Easter service was incredible and was crucial to getting our family through the day. Thank you Pastor Terry! What a absolutely beautiful day, despairing but beautiful. If God can raise his son from the dead, he can save us from ANYTHING.
Jessica and Mama Lisa...
After service went to the Self's and were together with Jess's parents (Jon and Lisa)and brother (Justin) for most of the day. Please pray for her admirable family at this time, they are hurting so deeply. Justin's wife Angelica and their daughter will fly in tomorrow along with Jessica's Grandma and Kieth (Lisa's fiance). I think it will ease their agony being encircled by more family.
Today was one of the most difficult days of my life, but I can truly see the healing hands of God at work in all of us. Why was today harder than yesterday? I am not sure, yesterdays events are engraved in my mind and continue to replay. I saw things yesterday I never want to see again. They are all settling in now.
Lord, I am empty, I am in disbelief. I wanted it to be different. You could have left her with us yesterday if you had so chosen...you chose to heal her FOREVER instead....and so, we come humbly, weeping, our heads bowed, and we just ask for you to help us survive this grief.
His name is Jesus, and He gives.
His name is Jesus, and He takes away.
He is still on the throne.
My favorite kid pic of Jess! Priceless....
I will post again tomorrow to keep you all informed...
