My name is Rebecca Perry, but most doctors and official people are the only ones that call me that.  My mom called me Becky from day one, except when I was in trouble, and then it was "Rebecca Ruth Wilkinson!" 

I am one of four girls who grew up in a close, Christian home.  Our parents were great examples to us and showed kindness to everyone.  I'm grateful for my upbringing - I don't want to ever take it for granted.  I feel blessed, that even after I became an adult and set out on my own (so to speak), my heart still wanted to follow Jesus.

Now, I've been married since 1993.  After 7 years of trying to have children, we were finally blessed with a son in 2000 and in 2002.  I was able to realize my dream of homeschooling my children and seeing them graduate.  The oldest works with his dad every day, painting, and the youngest is pursuing a business degree at our local university.   As a parent, my biggest joy has been seeing them develop their own relationship with God and seeing them continue to follow Jesus.  I am blessed.

In 2008, my kidneys began failing due to a hereditary condition that has affected several members of my family (mom, aunt, cousins).  I went on dialysis and the transplant list in 2008 and had a transplant in March of 2010.  There's a whole lot of story in those few sentences and maybe soon I will share more about that with you.  I am thankful to be here, let me tell you!

Hobbies?  Interests?  Well, I'm a bit of a computer geek.  Not the programming and coding kind, but more of a "let's use the computer and internet to do things easier and quicker!"  I also love using desktop publishing to create printables, namely planner inserts.  For some reason, I have also loved doing paperwork, so making my own forms to fill out seemed like the way to go.

When I can draw myself away from my computer and phone (I should feel guilty about that, but I don't), I enjoy reading and crocheting (mostly when it's cold).

I'm a bit of a homebody (even before 2020) and I would call myself an introverted extrovert.  If you know, you know.  Really, I'm a combination of both.  Or maybe I'm an extrovert, but only if my group is small!  <smile!>  I guess what I'm saying is, I'm not shy.  I'm not afraid to say what's on my mind - but I want to feel safe when I do it.

Oh yeah, Roll Tide!!
