About Me

I am a homeschooling mother of 7 and wife to my knight in shining armor (who also happens to be our school principle, janitor, librarian, theologian and fire chief among many other things). I have one little saint in heaven and am open to any little lives that may come in the future.

I am not excellent in any one thing but am passably good at many things. This keeps me humble and also keeps me excessively curious about life in general. I certainly do tend to get distracted easily but I am passionate about my distractions!  I hope that my children will develop excellence in some area of their lives. I also hope that they will remain wildly curious about all the pieces of God's great big beautiful world.

My primary goal in life is heaven. My primary prayer is to possess the desire to love God above all things and the will to do so. My primary vocation is wife and mother. My primary distraction is taking raw material and making it into something beautiful and useful.

I blog because my heart overflows and finds a colorful place so willingly on these pages. It's like art. I put it down and marvel or cringe alternately. Is that really me? Yes, it is. What do I love? Do I really live those words? Why must it be public? It doesn't have to be. But we are a social people and a public forum keeps me accountable. 

Sometimes I think that I will die young as a result of my horrible absent-mindedness. Other times I think I will live long so that I have lots of time to laugh at my folly and repent of it all. Between the beginning and ending pages of this life, I hope to have written a work of love that mirrors the goodness and joy of the One Who Is the original Love. May He write His will on my heart and delight in it for eternity.

I'm not an incredibly interesting person but I am striving (and often failing) to be incredibly good at who I am made to be. If you must know more, you can find random thoughts here:
