My name is Jane Korvemaker, and it’s very nice to meet you!
I am wife to my other half – Andy – who seldom writes here, but occasionally likes to make his views known. We have been married over a decade and have had adventures in southern California, Edmonton, Ottawa, and now Saskatoon. He loves StarCraft, Star Wars, and beer making. That might nearly sum him up.
We have co-created 3 children, and currently we’re into homeschooling. They love having pictures and videos taken of them, the videos of which can be found on my youtube channel.
What I do
I am a faithful Catholic residing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and as transplant from the mountainous region of British Columbia where I grew up, I miss my mountains and hills in this land of endless prairie.
Traveling with my kids is a favourite pastime/learning adventure (even if the drive might drive us crazy sometimes), I love food and have my Certificate in Culinary Arts from the College of New Caledonia in my hometown of Prince George. I love wine and beer, and enjoy the idea of crafting and have no qualms with attempting projects I have no experience in, even if the final result is disappointing. This is both a blessing and a curse, depending on the result of the endeavour.
Academics and Writing
I write monthly for CatholicMom.com, you can find those articles here.
I earned my Bachelor in Theology from Newman Theological College in Edmonton, where I met Andy, who was studying as a seminarian at the time. We have a story that is told here, but long to short, we got married after awhile. Post-marriage, we moved to Ottawa for me to pursue a Masters in Pastoral Theology from St. Paul University, which I ended mid-program due to unsatisfactory experiences. I did attain my Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies (what an amazing program!) and we loved our time in Ottawa, especially loved the people with whom we connected. And we miss the cheese. Maybe especially the cheese. I’ll be honest – I am still quite attached to the cheese, as well as the people.
I am a Catechist in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, and I started an Atrium in the Autumn of 2016 and, due to the Spirit’s unyielding desire to have the program in my parish, we have 6 catechists-in-training in my Atrium this year. I’m thoroughly excited to help give kids the tools they need to develop their relationship with Jesus!
Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your time here!
