Who am I? What a good question. Until I began my 12 Step Spiritual Journey, I had no clue. I defined myself by what others thought of me, what others wanted from me, and by the hurt and damaged emotions that came along with what others did to me. As a result of completing my steps and working the program on a daily basis, I now know who I am and I like what I see.
I’m a 42 year old wife and mother of 4. I don’t mind telling my age because if given the chance, I would never go back to younger years. Not even if I could know then what I know now. Life just gets better with age. I am soon to be celebrating my 12th anniversary with the love of my life, Paul. He’s a brilliant man with a brilliant mind.
I am a family kind of gal. I love to bake, sew, crochet, and do bible studies. I’m currently sort of in between churches right now as I’ve felt a nudge for a change. I don’t know what that will look like but it should be an interesting ride.
My children are my stars. I am totally crazy about each one of them. They all know it too except of course, for the 16 year old. At 16 I’m not sure any kid really understands how much they are loved. Anyway, they all bring me such pride. More than they will ever know. Though each is different in very unique ways, they are all loved by me just the same.
I am a closet writer with very strong, Christian beliefs. I hope to someday, publish a book on Christianity. I have a passion for helping hurting women find life beyond the pain. And most likely, you will find much of that kind of writing here. I am heavily influenced by the bible studies of Beth Moore and I think that reflects in my writing style quite a bit. I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts and I pray that somewhere along the line, someone is helped by what they read here.
