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.

This morning when I came home from the gym Chris had the bed made, kids showered/bathed and was folding laundry! This can be your husband too! *Disclaimer below*
Honey and I started the 40-day Love Dare challenge last night. It is for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love. Whether you are hanging on by a thread with your spouse or your marriage is stronger than ever it is a journey you must take. The Love Dare ($14.99) is from the hit movie Fireproof, written by Stephan & Alex Kendrick. I hope that you will follow this journey with myself and Chris and even go on one with of your own with your Honey. I will share more with you as we strengthen our marriage and our walk with the Lord. I am not afraid to tell you no marriage is perfect, every marriage can get better!
Day 1's dare is to demonstrate patience by saying nothing negative to your spouse at all. This is a lot harder than most would think and it is only 2pm my time!
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love - Ephesians 4:2 NIV
*Chris is not like most men, don't expect your honey to be folding laundry on day 1 with out being asked. The Love Dare is not a journey to try to change your spouse, this will end in great frustration and failure. Think of this as a path to learning how to love another imperfect person unconditionally.
Hold your tongue and say nothing you will regret, Kristen
