A middle-aged disciple of Jesus Christ, I'm also the wife of the same great guy for over 26 years. We have four beautiful children (three of whom are "grown and gone" and one who is halfway there). We also have two gorgeous daughters-in-law and a rambunctious Golden Retriever in our family. My hobbies include writing, reading, teaching, sewing, making art, traveling, watching songbirds, and socializing with people who love to laugh. My blog includes a smattering of it all, but mostly I love to talk about my family.
