Bio’s are tough. I never know what to say. How do you tell a person who you are in a matter of paragraphs and hope to convey something of value that makes them want to come back and read more? With that said, rather than convincing you that I’m a great writer with lots of really smart stuff to say, I’ll go ahead and give you the bare bones of who I am.
I am a morning person. I love the quietness of the morning. I can’t sleep in late and I’ve really tried. On the flip side, I go to bed early. Past 9:30, I can hardly put two sentences together. I like to eat circus peanuts. Chewy, soft, orange wonderfulness. I can eat an entire bag in one sitting and all on my own. I like the color blue…all shades, but especially navy blue. I HATE swim suit shopping…about as much as I hate cleaning the toilets. I can touch my nose with my tongue. You know that Van Halen song called “Panama”? Well, for all of my life up until about 5 years ago, I thought they were saying “Cannon Ball”. Yes, I did think it was a little strange to be singing about cannon balls, but stranger things have been sung about.
At present, I am a stay-at-home mom and do free-lance writing on the side. I received my undergrad (BS in Business) from Miami of Ohio. After school I worked as a consultant in the market research industry. However, I was diagnosed with MS and left the professional world shortly there after.
Blogging for me is not necessarily a need to share as much as it is a need to release. It’s like having something inside that if you don’t say it, you’re just going to explode. In the end, I guess that’s what this blog is…an explosion of grace that I have gotten to taste and am dying to share.
Jeremiah 20:9 But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
