About Connie

Connie Welch

I’m a born and bred Texas Domestic Engineer married to my sweetheart and best friend, John, aka, Mr. Fix-It for over 33 years.

My handsome husband John, (aka Mr. Fix-It)



We have two married kids, blessed with a daughter and son-in-love, plus I’m a Grammie.





I have an amazing sidekick who is a schnauzer wowzer named Sassy.



I’m also a sheep wrangler.
Yep, you heard right! I share some about sheep wrangling in posts and videos.
We have a small sheep ranch in the Texas Hill Country.
We currently live in the “big city,” but travel back and forth to the country which I fondly refer to as “Blissville.”




I am a comical mix of Doris Day and Annie Oakley wanna- be.  I am convinced God has a sense of humor with the comical country escapades I get in.  I’m a city girl with a country heart who loves Jesus, my family, and country life.





When I was 12 years old I invited Jesus into my heart as my Savior but it was many years later as a young adult when I understood what it meant for Him to be the Lord of my life.  We’ve had a love relationship ever since.


I’ve enjoyed being involved with Christian ministry for many years, as a Bible Study director, teacher, and conference speaker.  In 2006 I became  involved and taught a Christ centered health and wellness program, First Place 4 Health. In 2010 I began serving in First Place as a Network Leader for Texas that helps train and support other group leaders. In 2011 I had 18 devotionals published in First Place 4 Health’s Devotional Book, “Better Together.”


The passion of my heart is to share God’s message of hope through writing, teaching and encouraging others in Christ.  I love to help others discover the real difference Jesus makes to empower us to live beyond our circumstances.


I’m a flawed gal who needs Jesus.  I’m an ordinary woman who God continues to transform from a shepherd to a warrior.  Every day I am amazed at what he does in my life.  Many times I back seat drive him, yet he’s always patient with me as I work through the process of letting go and giving him the wheel.


Life is full of so many things that define who we are. But I want to share with you something that does not define who I am.  Chronic Active Hepatitis C lived with me for 20 years.   I said for many years, Hepatitis C lives with me, I do not live with it.  Receiving a cure which resulted from my 3rd treatment, I can now say, HEP C NO LONGER LIVES WITH ME.   I contracted Hepatitis C in a very unusual way.  Stop by and visit my Hep C Story and see how God has turned a tragic story into a Life Beyond Hepatitis C.
