New to Faithwriters in January 2007, I'm still finding my way around. Forgive any faux pas in the meantime! My relationship with Jesus Christ defines the parameters of my life. Inside that framework I live with 2 dogs, 2 preteens, 2 teens,and 1 husband. Homeschooling, homemaking, resident sounding board, chief cook, grocery shopper, and finder of lost items - that's where I'm at right now, and it's the best job I've had! Writing is something I do to preserve the shredded tatters of my sanity, and I love it! I enjoy voluntary simplicity, a rural lifestyle, travel, humor and good conversation.
