About Me

Welcome! I'm Tina Puntigam, the writer in residence. This blog is where I share about HoHa which is an abbreviation for "Hands on Home arts." I share about our home life and all the things that make up my days.

I believe that everything we do is an art, or at least it can be. And I like to share about all the things that I find provoking through out my day. One way that I do that is through book reviews, which are generally posted on Wednesdays, depending on how much time I've had to read the week before. I also like to share something tasty from our previous week's menu on Tasty Tuesday. Every Thursday, I try to pause to remember to be thankful for all the little things. And then every now and then I will post about something that has struck me in regards to the work that Jesus is doing in my life.

So, who is MamaTina?



Well, I grew up in the sticks of South Carolina. We used to kid around and say that they have to pump the sunshine in. To this day, cable is still not available at my childhood home. I left small town life after graduating high school to experience small liberal arts college life. I attended Converse College in the late nineties, developed some wonderful friendships and started a journey of walking with Jesus. I left college with degrees in chemistry and French and a thirst for God. I practically ran to seminary and I'm so glad that I did because that's where I met my amazing husband, Joel.

We got married in 2001 and were blessed with our one and only child, Hannah, three years later. The three of us currently live in Michigan, were Joel is the pastor of a local church. We spend our free time watching movies, going for walks with our dog, and playing with our cats, Tinkerbell and Pumpkin. And that is pretty much me in a nutshell.

I guess I should mention that in the midst of all those commas and periods, I suffered a few set backs and painful events. I share about them from time to time, when I've discovered healing or feel God's prompting. Mainly, my struggles have centered around depression, PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome), miscarriages, lost friendships, and the reality of life. I praise the Lord that we were in the storm together and that He stands with me still!

If you ever have any questions about me or about the things that I write here, please contact me via email at HoHaBlog @ gmail.com. I would love to hear from you!
