I am a devoted Christian, well loved for 27 years by the most excellent representation of masculinity I have ever known, and mother to 5 children I hope I haven’t screwed up too much.

My life is filled to the brim with wifely duties, mothering (and hopefully discipling) our children, homeschooling and related activities, cooking, and running, at which I am still very much a beginner. I’m embarking this fall on a new gig as a teacher, as well as doing some freelance copyediting while continuing our homeschool journey. This year is promising to be a challenging one, but still a lot of fun!

When the sun sets and the day’s work is done, there really is nothing I enjoy more than grabbing a tome, putting on my glasses, and snuggling as close as possible to my beloved and reading.

I can’t wait to discuss genres, iconic characters, authors, and even children’s books in this space. The busyness and fast pace of post-modern life attempts to devour the slowness and relaxation required to truly delve into a good book.

I’m so very thankful that I was able to recapture the love of reading that I felt as a child before the pixels succeeded to take over every inch of available mental space.

    If it is about reading, then I’m always down…plus I need to get with you about a few things at some point.

    Put my first and last name together all one word at gmail dot com and there I’ll be. You are uniquely qualified for this. 🙂

    I try to update my About pic once a year or so, because I just like to do that. If I’m going to have one, it shouldn’t be 5 years old. I was loving my hair today so I updated it. Also, I consider it a “before” picture. If I can swing it, I hope to be much thinner by my anniversary in February 2019.

    So I’m trying to remember to update this page every year, mainly for my oldest bloggy friends to keep up with how I’m doing, and watching me age, LOL. So there’s a new pic up and an update with what’s happening on the next leg of my journey.
