Much of who we are is defined by our relationships, so that is where I will start.
As a Christian, I am first and foremost a daughter of my Heavenly Father. My life goal is to live in the love, peace, grace, and joy of this!
I am the wife of Thad. I am the mother of Mary, Julia, Rachel, Joanna, Lydia, Andrew, Micah, Naomi, Ben, and Melody. Mary is married to Ryan and has two sons, Jacob and Isaac. Julia is married to Alex.
I am a friend to many, and look forward to all of the stories each will tell in Heaven of how our lives intersected.
I cherish the people whom God has placed in my life, and pray that I will be able to love them well.
I am a poet and activist with what I would call a “fluid” personality: creative, quirky, ADD-ish, and allergic to being boxed in. We have also been home schooling for over 20 years, and some of our children have also been enrolled in public schools. I value the choice.
