I’m on this mission to spread love, hope, and kindness by blogging at Intentional Dabblings, writing ebooks (like Becoming an A+ Mama), creating Christian-based gifts for Fibers of Joy (coming soon), and by giving a portion of my earnings to ministries that share my mission.
I’m striving to help people combat the voice of The Enemy, whispering in our ears. He’s telling us that we aren’t good enough and never will be. It’s true too. Which is what makes him so very hard to defeat and miserable to endure. But God’s grace is sufficient. It’s through Him that we learn to live joyous and meaningful lives. I want everyone to know that joy.
About Me: I Ain’t Perfect
There’s normally a basket of clean, unmatched socks and unsorted underwear in my house because I hate matching socks and sorting underwear. I put it off until my husband helps me dig myself out (he’s awesome that way).
I can’t buy a box of ice cream without eating the whole thing. By myself. In one day.
I learned about leadership and teamwork as a research assistant working on a study of testosterone and it’s effects on human behavior. It was good times.
I’ve learned about the importance of relationships and how God works through us while serving as the coordinator of my local MOPS (mother’s of preschoolers) group. oh yeah. I’m still doing that…I’m sure I need to go write a meeting agenda…
I DVR the Super Bowl so I can watch the commercials and half-time show the next day.
My kids use tablets. They work hard at school all day, they do their homework, we read books and we have family game night and generally eat meals together. But I let them use tablets as long as they follow instructions and get done what they need to get done. I’m not convinced that letting them use a tablet is a bad thing but I know technology can be dangerous.
My car is the ultimate mom-mobile. There are crumbs, trash, and toys everywhere. Somehow it also accumulates shoes and socks…I’m bewildered by this. Sometimes, when my kids get out of the car, their garbage falls out behind them. It’s never ending.
I work hard to see the people behind my to-do list. People are more important than productivity or details. But I still (almost) ALWAYS have a to-do list. And I still struggle to remain cheerful when it gets interrupted.
I often walk into a room and forget why I’m there.
I’ve been skydiving and hang gliding. There are pictures and witnesses (who are as crazy as I am). Right now my bucket list item is “raising children.” I’ll be on that one for a while. Apparently, there are many other people out there who are crazy enough to try raising children too. If you’re one of them, good luck with that. Skydiving is easier.
I’m a blogger and you’re reading my blog right now! How cool is that? Although, I just heard one blogger refer to herself as an “online publisher.” I like the way that sounds. I do publish stuff. Online. Frequently (like once a week).
