I have always enjoyed writing and journaling. Throughout school I wrote and edited for school papers and yearbooks. I wrote Christmas is About Jesus when my children were young to encourage their family celebrations to truly center on Jesus. Besides raising my own children I have worked with children from preschool through middle school at various times and in variety of roles since I was in high school. I pray my books will be helpful for your family as you raise godly children.
I am humbled you have an interest in me.
I am an ordinary wife and mother. So ordinary I find it hard to know what to say about myself. I'm just me. I long to be many things, but that's not who I am, yet.
Most important to know is that I have a growing passion to know God, our loving Creator. He is so much better than I know. Better than I can imagine. It is wonderful to get to know Him better, to witness His faithfulness, mercy and grace. What I learn I feel I must share. This is why I write. I want you to benefit from my lessons learned, my thoughts and inspirations, and hard as it is, my failures.
Next I am a wife. My husband is my best friend and greatest fan. I would not be what I am without his unconditional love and support. We rejoice that we have grown together through our trials and hard times rather than apart. He is more vital to me than ever.
I am a mother of four fabulous children. The youngest is awaiting my arrival in heaven. Already so familiar with the Savior's face.
Mothering is all inclusive and somewhat consuming. My three are 13 and 15 months apart for a total of 28 months from oldest to youngest. They grow far too quickly and their time under my care is far too short. I have always felt called to educate my children as part of raising them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. I have learned that this was just as much for the shaping of my faith and character as for theirs.
I have been blessed to live in the beautiful state of Alaska on our own 5 acres. We can see some mountains from home and many more as we go about our daily lives. I love that the sun rises later in the winter so I can enjoy more sunrises and sunsets. I also love the long summer nights, especially when bedtime doesn't really matter.
In rare moments of free time, I write. I enjoy creating things. I knit or crochet while my children work on their studies and even while I read to them sometimes. I like to doodle and paint and draw. I am far better at planning than following through. I love to capture memories by writing them down or scrapbooking. I grow and struggle and fail and repent, not always as soon as I'd like.
I thought I'd be grown up by now. Now I just see I have father to go. I am more determined to cherish the journey and my fellow travelers.
