I WAS a first grade teacher, learning disabilities tutor, and sign language interpreter.
Now I'm a mom. I have eight children so I spend most of my time listening, chaufffeuring, teaching, cooking, encouraging, cleaning, correcting, and organizing. I love (almost) every minute of it.
The Good Doctor and I met in college, got married a month after graduation, and have now been at this marriage thing for over 25 (sometimes) blissful years.
What do I love? I love children, of course. If I had freetime, I would probably read, sew, do crafts, or end up spending time with one or more of my children, anyway.
I desire to find my place in this world; using the talents God has given to me. I want to live my story well. I want others to know that they are uniquely gifted and that each of us has a story in this great anthology called life. I especially want to encourage and support younger parents in their parenting journey. I have a heart and a passion for orphans. I'd adopt them all but where I'm the accelerator, the Good Doctor is the brake. Together, we keep from crashing.
The best way to find out who I am is to read this blog, I guess. I struggle to think that anyone would want to read what I have to say so I'm glad you're here. Let me know what you like, what you enjoy, and in what areas you'd like to know more.
