I'm married to my best friend, Todd Schuchmann (he's originally from Iowa). We have four terrific kids: Eric (1987), Joy (1995), Joel (1998), & Rose (2000); a sweet daughter-in-love Carole-Lee; and a grandbaby who is growing happily in the womb.
All the kids sing and play instruments (self-taught). Eric plays just about anything with strings, Joy plays guitar & keyboards, Joel plays guitar, and Rose is her Grandpa's "Banjo Belle" who is also teaching herself guitar. We all play around and have fun with with other instruments as well-- like the mandolin, ukulele, tin whistle, trumpet, or anything we can get our hands on. Joy is a budding worship leader, Todd leads worship with his guitar, and I lead from the keyboard. We all love to sing and harmonize together.
I have been on worship teams since I was radically saved over 20 years ago and am extremely passionate about worship and intercession.
I have been serving pregnant teens and expectant families since 1989 and am currently a home birth midwife in Florida's Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.
Todd, Joy, Joel, Rose, & I moved from Virginia Beach, VA, where I had lived my entire life, to North Port, FL, in May of 2007 to start a network of house churches connected with New Life Ministries International (http://www.newlife.cc). Eric is grown and still lives in Va Beach. He and our daughter-in-love Carole-Lee are expecting our first grandbaby around Thanksgiving of 2012.
We love southwest FL! The weather and the beaches here are great and we love our new friends!
My time is mostly spent hanging out with my children and homeschooling.
I am also the executive director of Charis Childbirth (http://www.CharisChildbirth.org), an international school for midwives, childbirth educators, lactation counselors, & doulas with an emphasis on Christian missions that I founded in January of 2003.
Todd and I are pastoring a house church that meets in our home on Saturday evenings. We share a meal together, study the Bible together, worship together, pray together, and thoroughly enjoy the growing friendships. (http://www.newlifehousechurch.org)
Just about anything that glorifies Jesus! I appreciate and enjoy most styles of music. I especially enjoy Casting Crowns these days and, of course, anything my husband and kids sing/play.
