Most of you know me by name and by face. Usually you will find me with two or three children all going in the opposite directions. For those of you who don't know me, I am Robin Lehmann. I have been the secretary here at Living Savior Lutheran Church since November of 2014. For a stay at home mom with a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 year old, you can imagine how much I enjoy my two days of working at the church. Let me take you back a little ways and I will tell you how I got here.
I grew up in Fort Atkinson, WI, with 1 older sister. I graduated from Fort Atkinson Senior High-School in 1997 and decided after two years of working 3rd shift in a factory to go college. I graduated in 2005 from Madison Area Technical College with an Associate Degree in Business Mid-Management. Years went by until I meet Jeremy Lehmann and fell in love with him and his 2 year old (Elizabeth). I'm happy to say we have been married for 1 year now and have 3 children: Elizabeth (6), Bethany (2) and Jacob (1). To make it a full house, we also have a dog named Cooper.
As far as hobbies go, I do have a few. One would never know it watching me grow up, but reading is one of them. Scrapbooking, and exercising are hobbies of mine as well. Having children has turned me into a good cook and an amazing baker, according to my husband and kids. My kids love to help cook and bake so we tend to do a lot of it instead of going out to eat.
My personality is one of a kind. I am a trusting person unless I have a reason not to trust someone. Being open and honest is another trait of mine. My mom will tell you that putting a band-aid on everyone’s ouchies is what I do. My response is, if I can help someone in need then I will. If I can’t help, I will always try to point you in the right direction. My dad would tell you that I think with my heart and it leads me to a lot of heartache. Truth be told, he is right.
By now you should have a pretty good idea of who I am and what I am all about. If you have any questions for me or, if there is something that I can help you with, please don't be shy. You will never know what I can help you with until you ask. :0) Peace to you all, always.
