Blogging is new for me, and I’m having a hard time keeping up with it. But, this blog’s purpose is to keep our friends and family back in the States up-to-date with how this branch of the Allardice family is doing in France.
I’m Melody, my husband is Guillaume, and our beautiful daughter is Liliane Rose. Guillaume and I met as freshman at Bob Jones University when we had assigned seats next to each other. We both thought the other was very weird, and barely spoke. However due to a myriad of circumstances, our paths kept crossing, and we started dating our senior year. After 2 years of grad school, we were married July 24, 2009. We stayed at BJU for another year, Guillaume finishing a masters degree, and me working on staff with BJU Press Distance Learning. On August 2, 2010, Lily joined our family, and when she was 7 weeks old, we moved to Limay, France.
We feel God has called us let let our lights shine for Him in this part of the world. France is a Catholic nation turned to atheism, and there is so much need here for the True Light of Christ.
