So Ewe Want to Know About Me?

JuliLambI’m Juli Jarvis–a wife, proud mother of three, a Child Advocate for Compassion International, an avid quilter and a musician. I’m very pleased to be the piano accompanist for our local high school choirs, which include concert choir, a vocal jazz group and an all male choir.  I love going for walks, picnics, and hikes in the mountains.  I also love to travel and have combined travel and history interests with research on our family tree.  The most important aspect of my life is my relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is my best friend, Counselor, Comforter, and supplier of all my needs.

I like to bring humor into my writing, along with the spiritual lessons I’m learning along the way.  He speaks to me every day in the words of scripture, in nature and from others on the same pathway.

No, I don’t raise sheep but am usually seen at a local sheep ranch every spring, just to get my hands on these sweet little creatures!  I love small things — lambs, puppies, children, miniature paintings and keepsakes.  God can do amazing wonders with small things!

    Would love to know if you have any info on the nativity set with the stone wall etc. We have one that was left by my husbands parents and it’s beautiful.
    Thanks Shannon

    Hi Juli
    You have a partial photo of the ship’s log from the Robert and Alice that arrived in Philadelphia Sept. 11, 1738. Do you happen to have a copy of the entire handwritten list? My family of 11 were aboard. The names are shown with several spellings of the names —
    Philip Tofort sen.
    Philip Tofort jr.
    Stephen (+) Durnbercher
    Johann Philipps Weiss
    Jan Jacob (X) Torenberger
    Hans Michell Torenberger
    Oygell Torenberger

    The names was really Duffort and Terryberry

    Your item about your ancestors appeared when I Goggled “Pascommuck 1704 Indian Huggins”. Margaret Huggins, Almira Sophia Huggins, John Huggins, Hutchinson, Innersole, Abigail Fleming Huggins, Morrison Huggins, and Rockford are all integral parts of my family tree. I would be happy to share what I have, and wonder if you have any information beyond what you posted.

    Juli: My wife was inspired by your Wordle of the names of Jesus, and wants to try to do something along the same lines for our congregation. We would appreciate knowing the version of Wordle you are currently using, specifically, one that allows use of phrases, and greater control of output styles. But, as you’ve learned through your experiences, the standard wordle routines don’t handle phrases… We are aware of the advanced routine allowing control of size and color, but wonder if these are what you use. Thanks in advance for a reply. M-E and SC Duban.

      I just use according to their directions. When you want to keep words together, you need to connect them like this:
      You can see tips for creating wordles here on my website in the sidebar. Let me know if you have any other questions. And please send me the link to your Wordle when it’s completed!

  7. Ruth says:

    Sorry I have just left a message about sponsering a child in Hait but ment to mention I live in England, and my husband is also an advocate for compassion too.

  8. Ruth says:

    Hi just started sponsering a little boy from Haiti, and was interested in the visit you made there. And what church did you go to.

    Brittany — I’ve heard that you call your hills “mountains” back East! lol

  10. Brittany says:

    Northwestern Virginia…about 2 hours west of DC. We have the Shenandoah Mountains, which after visiting Wyoming, look more like hills…lol.

  11. Juli Jarvis says:

    Brittany — it’s a small world, isn’t it? Where do you live now?

  12. Brittany says:

    Wyoming?! My husband grew up in Powell and my in-laws still live there. We visited for New Years this past year…it was BEAUTIFUL!!
