Life is a journey meant to be shared. This is one of the places I share mine. Here, you’ll find the good the bad and the downright messy. I share my mistakes, ideas, art and life as I’m getting to know and learning to follow Jesus. (be forewarned:I tend to be slow in that race.)
I have been married to my husband-Kyle for nearly 25 years. I am Mom to three sons-one in each of the last three decades…Mike 24, Matt 20 and (yes- SURPRISE!) Noah- who’s 11. I love photography, learning, speaking, writing, and yeah, knitting, spinning and fiber arts of all kinds. (Something I do each day should last longer than toilet scrubbing!)
Things I’ve done or do:
Taught pre-school, Sunday school and home schooled older two sons for 3 years. (have also had them in private and charter schools-the oldest just started college and the middle one is in high school) If there is a schooling option, I’ve tried it. I am currently homeschooling my youngest son.

Random fact- I love taking pictures- but hate being in them…
I dream of:
Encouraging and equipping women to live authentically and love fully, and by doing so- to make a difference in their world. (I also dream of having the whole house clean at one time… . but that will probably never happen.)
