About Abbie

IMG_5394Welcome to The Blue Tree House! I’m Abbie Sikma. I started The Blue Tree House with the desire that it would be a blessing to other Christian young ladies. Over the years, I’ve shared modest outfit ideas, recipes, truths God is teaching me, book reviews, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I’m the third of eleven children and have seven brothers and three sisters (yes, the girls are just slightly outnumbered). I love living in a large family. As a child, there was always a playmate (or three) and, as an adult, there’s always someone to talk to. Our best friends are each other.

My parents are a continual encouragement, challenge, and blessing to me. My dad leads our family with love and bases every decision on the Word of God. Mom is wonderful helpmeet for Dad, an amazing mother to her eleven children, a talented homemaker, and a tremendous teacher.

I enjoy a variety of pastimes and activities and I love learning a new skill. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family, learning Spanish, playing an instrument, sewing, baking, and going on missions trips (not necessarily in that order).

What about you? Who are you? Where are you from? What do you enjoy doing? Drop me a line sometime, I’d love to hear from you!

For thou art great and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. Psalm 86:10
