Creative, always pondering and thinking, Alyssa Holmstrom loves the beautiful landscape Duluth has to offer. Reading a book, walking her beloved dog, cooking, or spending time with her strong and loving husband of six years, Todd are favorite pastimes of Alyssa's. Alyssa loves spending time with her friends. Her friends are so very important: making them laugh and drinking lots of coffee are her favorite ways to unwind! They are a true gift and bring much joy to her life! Walking together through infertility and adoption, they are praying about the joys and sorrows their story holds, and have seen the fruit of joy as they enjoy their new daughter. Adoption is something near and dear to her heart.In December 2015, Ashley and her family moved to the beautiful North Shore of Minnesota and currently live in Two Harbors. She has the privilege of being a stay at home mom to her three daughters Ellie (born December 2013), Emma (born June 2016), and Nora (born October 2017). In addition to navigating motherhood she also is figuring out what it means to be a pastor's wife and keeping life in balance.
