Introducing me

Although the majority of people who will read this blog may already know me, for those who may not, here goes nothing.

I am a 36 year old woman living in Central Indiana. I have been married for fifteen years to a wonderful man who puts up with a lot. We have 2 children together. A twelve year old daughter who is active in softball and choir and has a bedroom full of Jonas Brothers posters and a six year old son who loves to play computer games, build with lego's, magnetix, and k'nex...and trips to the library.

I am fulltime student--taking my courses online as much as possible. I am in my fourth semester--with 2 more to go for my associates degree--and then at least 4 more semesters at another institution to get my B.S. My family supports my dream and for that I'm truly grateful.
I love to read. I am an unpublished author and hope to share some of work here from time to time. I am a Christian. I believe God has big plans for me...and much of my writing reflects my faith.
Recently life has added a few extra struggles and those struggles, as well as whatever else flows out of my fingertips, is what I will be sharing here. Between the normalcy of having an almost teenage girl and being in school myself to the little boy with ADHD and who knows what else going a husband with a job that is unstable at best right has thrown us a few curve balles. Writing is my release. God is my guide. When I started writing at I stated my purpose in writing was to serve Him. That remains...though in truth, as much as I hope that my writing touches someone, somewhere for also helps to bring me peace.

I have writings at and have been a member for 2 years. I also have held a blog there--but because I can't afford to continue to pay for an upgraded membership I just don't have time to use I will be moving here. The writers there have been a source of encouragement and knowledge. I will continue to keep a portfolio there and may link to it from time to time.
For now, I'm curious about all who are here...and I hope the air is fresh, the neighbors friendly, and the hugs good and strong.

Many blessings to you and yours.


  1. I can't wait to read what you have to say. I love having new friends around the country. You're an old pro so I'll definitely be checking back often.

  2. I just noticed your comment on my page. I love to help plan Disney Vacations. I always suggest and as great places to start gathering info. You'll want to plan ahead for the attractions you won't want to miss and any dining experiences want might want plan for. We've stayed at Pop Century and our daughter loved it.

    We always suggest getting up early and being at the parks at rope drop. You will accomplish so much more and be able to enjoy your resort in the afternoon before hitting the parks again in the evening.

    If you have any specific questions, let me know?

  3. Thanks for sharing six things about you. It is great meeting you and I hope you will share some of your writing here.
