- If it weren't for God's presence in my life, I would not be able to inspire faith and courage in others. He is my inspiration, my strength, my joy.
- My favorite verse is Isaiah 26:3. And also Psalm 30:5. Oh wait, Psalm 34:18 is another great one . . . I'll stop now.
- I'm an ordinary mom. I make lunches, wipe noses, play Chutes & Ladders, read bedtime stories, dispense band-aids, and give lots of hugs and kisses to my kids while they'll still let me.
- I fall behind in my household chores from time to time, especially when on deadline. I keep up with laundry pretty well, but my mop doesn't see any action, for instance, while I write a book.
- We love traditions in this house. Among our favorites: having pizza and Family Movie Night on Fridays, watching Rick Steves on Saturday mornings, spaghetti dinner (made by my husband) on Sundays.
- I do my best writing wearing pants with elastic waistbands. I call these "writing pants." My favorite pair is summer pajama bottoms from L.L. Bean.
- I'm an introvert but enjoy public speaking. Weird, right?
- I'm really big on list-making. I think it's hereditary, because my daughter seems to have inherited the gene as well. Evidence at right, from when she was six years old.
- I tend to either cook 30 meals in a day or go for three months without cooking more than twice a week (and therefore using the 30 meals I had prepared ahead of time). It works out nicely. Although sometimes I wish I was one of those people who cooked and baked super good stuff for fun.
- I'm not very crafty. I'll just say it. I really admire those who are, though.
Thanks so much for stopping by. This feels a little weird talking so much about myself, but that's what this page is all about. I'd much rather connect with you in a way that's not so one-sided, though, so please, connect with me through my blog, the contact page, or my Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you. :)
