Hi, my name is Chris Padgett. My wife and I have been doing ministry for over 25 years.  We may be flawed and a bit crazy, but we are living the greatest adventure. From high school sweethearts to parents of 9 children, following our dreams have led us to a nine sided house in CNY. In our little paradise, we have connected with the simpler life of family, faith, and very naughty farm animals. In addition, I love making people laugh, telling stories and encouraging people in the faith. In truth, I think we need something to laugh about and believe in now more than ever.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast; in my opinion the best yet.
    I met Linda at the school but had no idea of their ministry. The Padgetts and the Novotnys are 2 couples who are truly God’s instruments in our Church.
    Thank you!
