Hello! Welcome to my little blog, just*imagine*heaven. My name is Jan, and I’m just an ordinary Lutheran girl, married to a Lutheran pastor, working hard to raise a bunch of Lutheran children! I’ve given birth to seven of the most beautiful children, I’m not at all biased, in just under 8 years. I’m a city girl who married a country boy. I persuaded my husband to live in the city, but now I wouldn’t mind a few acres just outside of the city.
We homeschool our children and delight in watching them grow and learn to be remarkable people. We enjoy living close to parks and mountains, so that we are able to explore the outdoors, go on bike rides, and even do a little Geocaching as a family.
We recently became foster parents, so our family has grown from 6 children to 9 children. We pray that we can be a blessing to these children, and perhaps many more in the coming years. Foster care has opened our eyes to a world I’ve never seen, being in my own sheltered life.
Simply put: I’m no super mom; I’m just doing what I love.
In my spare time you will find me with a camera in my hand, sitting in front of a sewing machine, relaxing with a pair knitting needles in my hands, or cooking up some really delicious food in my kitchen.
Thanks for visiting. Sit down. Grab some coffee, and enjoy my blog! I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment or shoot me an email at

We love Denver sports. Can you tell?
