About

Welcome.

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?

    Hi Robin,
    I saw your daughter and husband at dinner the other night. I overheard your husband tell his clients that your daughter doesn’t speak, but can understand everything they are saying. This is when my ears perked up! I watched your beautiful daughter intetact with your husband, and thought of my own sweet girl. My daughter also has Apraxia. Haddy is 4, and just starting her journey with therapies and signs and many more things. Ad we had dinner and signed with Haddy I could see your daughter watching us, and at one time she waved to me and I waved and said hi. Our interaction was brief and not very much. But, I have thought about her since that day. I didn’t want to interrupt, or even make an assumption and talk to your husband. But this morning, I saw your blog posted, and knew I must write. I would love to talk to you about your experiences, meet your daughter and you in real life. I would also love to have the encouragement and friendship of a mom who is walking this journey as well. It must be fate that we saw each other and then I randomly saw your blog! Please email me, I would love to speak to you! ❤️
