About Me

Once upon a time, I was a stay-at-home mom to four boisterous kids, trying to cram in my writing & review deadlines between the never-ending laundry pile and constant calls for mom. Now I'm a middle-aged mama with two of munchkins off being mini-adults and two teenagers still at home to keep my taxi-driving credentials up-to-date.

Over the years, I've worked from home in the publishing industry, as well as holiday retail jobs and as a substitute para-educator. I've taught youth Sunday school classes, organized summer camps for young women, served on PTO's and been on hundreds of field trips. But the most rewarding choice I ever made was to become a mother. Motherhood has brought so many blessings and challenges into my life, all of which have helped me grow from a naive new mommy to a woman with more compassion, wisdom, and patience, as well as a heart full of love and faith.

I invite you to dive into my blog as I share the ups and downs of my nutty clan and all that our lives entail. As you explore the posts, I hope you find an abundance of strength, bits of inspiration, and the knowledge that you are never alone in this journey called Motherhood. Happy reading!
