Thanks for visiting! I can't wait to get to know you and link arms together as sisters.
But let me introduce myself.
Hi! I'm Marie Osborne. A wife, mama, and writer who loves Jesus and large non-fat lattes. As a former high school theater geek, I currently use all my acting and vocal training reading "Where The Wild Things Are" and singing "Jesus Loves Me" before night-night time. When I'm not laughing (loudly) with my 30-something husband, chatting (loudly) with my girlfriends, singing (loudly) with my 3-year-old son, or
being attacked by playing with my twin girls, I'm probably Pinning recipes I'll never make and binge watching Netflix during naptime. I rock toddler snot stains like they are the new black.
So what's my story?
After graduation, I began attending North Coast Church. I had been raised in an "Occasional Sundays" Roman Catholic household, but when I heard about Jesus, it was a game changer. I started following Him in the summer of 1998.
Soon after, I became involved in their amazing college ministry. The years spent in that ministry changed my life. The friendships and leadership training. The teaching and worship. Every aspect of it grew me in unbelievable ways. Not to mention the fact that I met my husband there.
Nathan and I were married in 2004, and we have had all kinds of adventures. Moving to Los Angeles for two years, Peoria, Illinois for 2 years, and now back to Southern California. He is seriously, the funniest man I have ever met. Ever. And my most favorite person in the world by a long shot. He has supported me in everything. Fabulous highs and incredible lows. Weekends working in all manner of ministries. Sitting through musicals and listening to my long, long, long stories. What would I do without him?
After 7 years of marriage, we had an amazing baby boy. He’s beautiful and silly and loud, all the best parts of each of us… so far. He’s 3 and quickly becoming the second funniest guy I know (after his daddy, of course).
In 2013, we added two new faces to our family, identical twin girls. It’s a little crazy up in here, to say the least!
Thanks for joining me. Can't wait to walk this journey together!
