Hello! My name is Naomi, and I am 16 years old. I'm the second oldest daughter in our family. I like to bake, cook, sew, read, practice my photography skills, have fun and spend time with my friends and family. I like to learn new things, grow my skills and am usually up for a challenge- whatever it may be. I want to travel the world when I grow up, but am safe and happy at home right now.

  I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth"

Naomi, You did a beautiful job with the photos, and I can just imagine that the rolls were every bit as yummy as the photos were beautiful! I can see you will make a wonderful home-builder one day! Your Mama taught you well. :~) I so enjoyed your post and hope to see more from you in the future. God bless you for taking an interest in the matters of the home, and may He bless and fulfill your dreams to bake and take pictures. He placed the dreams there in your heart in the first place to guide and direct your life's path. God's peace be with you, Cheryl
