I’m the wife of a really handsome and good man. A paramedic and firefighter who loves Jesus. For real, look below at his sun-tanned biceps and you’ll swoon a little.
I’ve been a homeschool mom for going on 18 years now. No, I do not wear a denim jumper. We’ve been parents to three biological kids, foster to several and adoptive parents to one extremely handsome kid who makes our hearts sing. I like to say that my heart doesn’t know that he didn’t grow in my womb. We are also grandparents to one super sass-ay curly-top darling girl.
And I milk a herd of dairy goats and sheep. I know. I know. That’s weird.
We live rurally on a small horse ranch taken over by Miniature Nubian milk goats. I make cheese and soap with the milk and sometimes yogurt and ice-cream. I’ve also begun spinning the fleece from my flock of sheep into artsy yarn. I’m no good at it, but it’s therapeutic.
On a productive day I work out, read with my littles and maybe ride one of my horses. Or Write 1500 words on my MacBook, and catch up the laundry.
On a not-so-productive day I curl up with my iPad and Netflix and watch Call The Midwife even though I’ve seen every episode 793 times. I’m a homebody. I never, ever wear high heels. I have a crazy love of newborn babies, good jeans, T-shirts, boots, mocha cappuccinos, well written books, my husband’s biceps, and Bible study. (“Seek ye out the book of the LORD, and read…” Isaiah 34:16)
Jesus has made all the difference in my life. He saved me out of a dark and deep pit and all I know to say to you is that my life is different. I put my trust in Jesus about 22 years ago now…it’s been quite a ride. Things are never boring, I’m far from perfect, and God is always good. Sometimes I like to write about it.
Over the years I’ve written for various print magazines, online newsletters, and had some work published in a couple of books. I’m working on self-study of writing craft because I’d dearly love to write well-written novels that in some way inspire.
