Writer House

From our home to you.

The Shroyer 3 are learning to rise. We bought this house after we had to let go of the 47-acre ministry property where we were living-on-purpose with Michael, on a venture to create a family wholeness center, where we were dreaming and building together… for the rest of our 100+ years. After Mike passed away, big decisions had to be made, and fast! The kids and I began to crave a small, cozy space within which to huddle, to heal, and to express our grief freely, one to another. We nicknamed our charming new-to-us 1924 bungalow, “Writer House.” And from within these crooked door frames and character-laden plaster walls, music is made, words are written, laughter and tears intermingle, and our hearts are healing. This section of the site is where our personal expression is most personal, and we invite you to enter Writer House and see what Good Grief sometimes looks like, how fun and funny the kids can be, read some candid parenting moments, and experience some of our adventures in homeschooling. So grab a cup of coffee and come on in! You never know what you might find when three open hearts and creativity find a home.

Ami

Ami

Mom. Widow. Jesus follower. Song expresser. People lover. Memory cherisher. Home-school promoter. Wholeness advocate. Healthy food balancer (sometimes enforcer!). Multi-tasker (or is it procrastinator?). Seeker. Believer. Learner. Dreamer.

I love words. I love the meanings of names. My name means “Beloved. Follower of the Lord.”

I want to love as much as I have been loved. I want to raise champions. The world is big, and though I am small, I want to make a splash with my dash in the timeline.

For eternity. For Jesus. For Love. For always.

J. Michael

J. Michael

This kid. His name means “Divine Peace. Who is like the Lord.” He was born with a smile and a giant belly laugh! I could have charged money for the amount of calls I used to receive, “Can JM come to our house to play with my kids? They’re about to kill each other, but when he’s here, they somehow get along!” So, while he writes, I can promise you that whatever he shares will be quirky, nerdy, full of peace, and laughter. He’s one classy guy. And because he has so much of his heroic father built-in, he’s also growing into… a champion.

Sadiella

Sadiella

This girl. Her name has a big meaning for her larger-than-life personality, “Princess. Who is Brighter than the Sun. Full of Grace and Mercy.” Her creativity can hit overdrive, and when it does, she raps on the fly, she draws and paints all over herself or anything she can find. She has a passion for cooking, and wants to have a restaurant someday (Souper Happiness, “where we serve more than soup and everyone leaves HAPPY!”). So, you may see her singing, serving, or singing while she’s serving. She has a heart for her “elders” and anyone sick or in need. She’s a true baby whisperer and would have her own zoo if only I’d let her. Whatever she decides to share with you, it’s sure to come from a recipe of some kind of wonderful.
