Hi! I’m Leah Stirewalt! Welcome to Soaking in Life…the place where I share all about those things that really crank my tractor (as my friend Carol would say)…living frugally, recipes, DIY, travel, decorating for holidays, organizing tips, crafting, great reads, homemaking, etc.
I am passionate about living the abundant life that God has so graciously given me, but I strive to find ways to do it simply and inexpensively. I learn so much from my fellow bloggers, so I pray that some of what I share here might be a blessing to many of you.
Some of you may have found me first over at Out of Deep Waters, my electronic oasis and ministry birthed out the tragic death of my late husband several years ago. That remains the place where I share how that life-changing experience (along with many others) caused me to temporarily “sink” into some pretty deep waters. Thankfully, I was rescued and restored, thereby making me able to now SOAK…IN…LIFE both fully and simply.
I am married to Prince Joel, and together we are parents/step-parents/foster parents of 9 children (ages 2 – 26), three of whom were adopted from Bulgaria in November, 2015. We are also the proud grandparents of two of the cutest little cuddlebugs ever! Yes – we’re a bit biased! Life is certainly never boring in our family!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I love connecting and soaking in life with you!
