About Me

Hi and welcome to my little corner of the internet!

In no particular order, here are some facts about me:

I am an Air Force brat born in France who married a Navy man from Pittsburgh.  Go figure.

My official resume lists a whole lot of different jobs from reporter to teacher to dog walker to doing PR for a professional basketball team.

My tax return has me check the dreaded box marked ‘widow’.  Ugh.

My driver’s license has a great picture that I keep even though it is now seven years old and lists my weight as 15 lbs less than the truth.

I am usually cheerful, and have even been called ‘perky’ by some.  I’m not quite sure it was a compliment. :)

I am often impatient and never, ever turn down the corners of a book’s pages to keep my place.

I am rarely late, but occasionally drive too fast to achieve that goal.  I’m working on that, really I am.

I love strong coffee, loud music, new lip-gloss and the first spoonful of peanut butter out of a brand new jar of Peter Pan.

I don’t love licorice jelly beans, any foods in the cabbage family, prejudice, road rage and anyone who messes with my kids.

I am completely amazed with God’s grace and that fact that He loves me for me.

The fact that He gives me the opportunity to speak His truth in front of a group of ladies is incomprehensible at times.

The idea that He has blessed me with, and trusts me to raise my two beautiful daughters on my own never ceases to bring me to tears. I love Him so.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

p.s.  I’d adore it if you would leave a comment if something blesses you…I know my security is in Him, but still, a girl needs a comment every now and then, dontcha think?
