I’ve been reluctant to put an “about me” page up because my work isn’t about me but the journey we’re taking. All the same, I realize I’m often curious about the person behind the computer and should kindly reciprocate.
I’m consumed with wanting to squeeze more out of life. Being idle isn’t something I can conceive. I’m a wife to a husband who understands my need to write and cheers me on (yes, he knows everything I write about our family), a mama to two young active and adventurous children here and two with God (can’t wait to meet them- they’ve impacted my life dramatically). I have a teaching credential and real estate license both used actively. Being busy for the sake of busyness is a waste but I thrive when I’m up to my eyes in projects that will make a difference (baking cookies does fall under this heading).
Looking back, I’ve had two careers, a divorce, a second-chance marriage and family but missed a lot because I was unwilling to fully follow where God was leading. Recently, I’ve been wondering, have I been faithful to God? Have I been His servant or have I merely obeyed when convenient and comfortable? God has used the answers to these questions to prick my heart. For me, writing is a form of worship, a way to lean-in and draw-near to the Creator. I don’t want to miss any more of His amazing plan for my life!
