Just a girl....with a sword....a shield....and a strong cup of coffee!

I'm a happily-ever-after wife, a mom-in-training to three and an encourager to women.

I love Jesus and I am thrilled to be sharing Him with you through this little spot on the web.

That's about it! What you see is what you get! I see things in black and white, right and wrong.

Oh. Just a side note....It's true my husband and I were born, raised and married Amish, hence the name 'Yoder'. We love our heritage, but it does not define us. I will blog about that if and when I feel so led.

Sound a bit sassy? That's probably just the coffee kicking in!

Have a beautiful day, lovelies! I look forward to sharing laughter, tears and many cups of fully caffeinated joe with you!

You can read more about my story and why I write what I do here.

"For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you a hope and a future."
~Jeremiah 29:11~


  1. How blessed you are indeed, dear Kaylene! JO

  2. I've always been fascinated with the Amish way of life. I will look forward to reading about anything you feel led to share. Happy to have met you.

  3. What a beautiful family God has given you, Kaylene! And your church looks like a great place to serve God. Lovely blog. See you around on Twitter. ~Joyce
