I am a child of God, a wife, a mom, and a teacher. I have a hard time trusting that God is in control, but He keeps teaching me. I love my amazing husband more every day. He is my best friend, my partner, and my rock. My daughter and son teach me every day about unconditional love, patience, and myself. In addition to my jobs as wife and mom, I have been a high school English teacher for nearly 18 years. I truly believe that this is what I was called to do. Teaching is my vocation and my ministry and is as much a part of who I am as my roles of wife and mother.
So why do I take time out of my day to write when my days are already packed with mothering and educating? Because I love to write. I really enjoy reading, but I love to write even more. Blogging is where I can write to remember what I don’t want to forget and write to process what I am trying to understand. I love words and appreciate the power of language; as much as I enjoy reading words, I enjoy writing them even more. This is my quiet place and the place where I recharge so that I can go back to my calling as wife, mother, and teacher.
So welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
