I am glad you are here.
I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, Christian working to get comfortable in my own skin. I am learning this is a journey that requires significantly more work than I want it to. It likely means I will have to become an exerciser and a vegetable eater when I would prefer to spend every afternoon in a climate-controlled movie theater eating buckets of butter-dripping popcorn and drinking coke through a Red Vine straw.
I don’t really have the right metabolism for that.
I am tired of plastic faith. I want a life that is gritty, stretching, and rooted in a love for God’s word. Seriously, I want everyone to fall in love with the Bible. I want to disagree and still be friends, which is going to take a lot of work.
Aside from being with my family, my favorite thing to do is plan crazy-big ministry projects. You can check them out at www.brightenacorner.com.
My son is grown and lives too far away. My daughters are still home and attend a fabulous hybrid school, which means they are on campus a few days a week and at home a few days a week. My 13 year old is in high school and is in charge of her own learning. My nine year old has special needs and is in the first grade, having successfully completed four years of kindergarten. She is learning and growing and thriving; I work her hard on her homeschool days.
I am learning to love my people for who they are, not who I want them to be. And I am desperately trying–as always–to get organized. Join me?
