I am a wife to one man and mother to three elementary school age children. I grew up in a small town in Texas and now live in one of the largest cities in the country. My small-town upbringing provides a calming backdrop to my sometimes hectic life in the big city.
And yes, I speak with a twang.
I’m a ponderer. That’s what I really like to do, just ruminate, construct and deconstruct thoughts. According to my friends, I can go deep quickly with only a “how’s the weather?” And while my favorite topic is Jesus, I can also go grad school thesis on lipstick color and application.
I like to read books. Many of my friends — or anyone who find themselves in a conversation with me — will likely come away with a few (emphatic) book recommendations. You can check out what I’m reading ON MY NIGHTSTAND.
I guess that leads me to reveal to you that I am a recommender by nature. If I like something, I don’t keep it a secret. I’ve often thought my dream job would be to host for one of the home shopping networks. You can see what I like on MY FAVORITES.
Before leaving the corporate world to stay home with our children, I worked in national public relations for one of the world’s leading and most recognizable brands.
About this blog
I started this blog as a place to call my own. I’ve written (and continue to write) for other outlets, but I wanted a warehouse for all of my previous writing, plus a showcase for new pieces that are only for this site. I came up with a lot of different names for this blog, but in the end, nothing really captured me, like, well, me.
I’ve waited several years to do this. My husband has been encouraging me to blog for years, but I put it off due to a lot of fear-based reasons (they seemed like reasonable reasons at the time, but I can look back and, nope, fear).
My favorite topics include marriage and parenting – you know, daily life kind of stuff – focusing on how Jesus loves us through all of it. And while I do have a Biblical worldview, I welcome everyone here — even if our views are different.
