Allison Schrader is a Truth telling, boo-boo kissing, coffee drinking, lover of Jesus. She has a strong infatuation with musicals, Shakespeare and leopard print.
Allison is often found with an iced caramel macchiato in one hand and loving on her people with the other. She spends most days hovering over and a fierce two-year-old, chasing a wild five-year-old and singing along with a precocious seven-year-old alongside her amazing husband, whom she calls “Fly.”
Before motherhood Allison worked in a local church. Completely caffeinated and full steam ahead, Allison strived to give it all as she pastored students and served families. She also used her gift of being dramatic to create meaningful moments in weekend services.
As motherhood and full-time ministry began to collide and crumble, Allison left her career to stay home and just be Mama. Through this transition God transformed her. From breakdown to breakthrough, she found herself on a new adventure that started with a big blue chair and a baby who wouldn't sleep. Today she is still figuring it out and fumbling along the way, learning how to love Jesus, others, and her family well.
In the messes, the mayhem and even the mundane, she searches for the holy and the miraculous. She sees God in birds, trees and rocking chairs. She sings showtunes and Silly Songs with Larry. She homeschools and drinks more coffee than she should.
And in the thick of it all, she throws her hands in the air singing her, "Hallelujahs," for this life she has been given.
Raindrops on Roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.
