Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. Here’s a little bit about my background and how this blog came to be.
I’m a wife and mother of three young adults and one teenager, and I’ve recently become a grandmother. This is the cornerstone of my love for and appreciation of “great and noble tasks.” Small tasks that are actually great and noble often begin with family that is closest to us.
I’m a teacher and homeschool mom. I taught high school English before homeschooling my own children for the past 18 years. I’ve coordinated and taught Sunday school to preschoolers through high schoolers, written academic and Sunday school curricula, and led women’s discipleship groups and Bible studies.
I’ve been writing all my life. When I was nine, I decided to be a mystery writer (hopefully the next “Carolyn Keene” or Agatha Christie), but sadly, I was unable to actually create a plot of any kind. After time as a theatre major and eventually acquiring a degree in English, I discovered that I could get paid for writing – advertising and marketing materials, that is. Not mystery stories after all. I’ve been a freelance writer and editor ever since.
I am a Christian. My life changed drastically 25 years ago, when God brought me back to himself after a long, long hiatus of living only for myself. He’s been teaching me the meaning of love, sacrifice, obedience, grace, mercy, patience, and what it looks like to live out what I say I believe.
