A Bit About Me

Just an all-around Canadian girl 😉

I am a wife and mother, which means I’m a chauffeur, domestic engineer, grocery shopper, chief cook & bottle washer, dietitian, pediatrician, early childhood educator, psychologist, psychotherapist, occasional drill sergeant, laundress, mistress, and an a/r & a/p and finance manager, as well as a writer, a singer, and a Norwex consultant.  In my spare time I…wait I don’t have any spare time.

As you can see, I'm surrounded by a great deal of testosterone

I’ve been writing since I was but a wee thing.

Since I was big enough to hold a pencil I’ve written stories and poetry.  But, I must confess, I haven’t written much of anything in a long time.  That’s what happens when life catches up with you; or when you have a pile of kids; or both.

My life has been a roller coaster of sorts.  A whole lotta deep, dark valleys but a good many mountain tops, too.  It’s amazing I’m sane, quite honestly.  Actually, the only reason that I’m not hugging myself in a padded room is I have the grace of God in my life.  Everything I am that’s good, came from surrendering it to God.  Everything else that I am comes from being a stubborn, prideful  sinner, only saved because of the Grace of God, but prone to stumbling pretty badly over the same blocks over and over again.

In all seriousness, I should be dead or in jail.  But God saved my life and gave me a life.

I am a work in progress.

I strive to be, with all that I am, an effective servant of God.  God has recently given me a glimpse of His Will for my life at this time, and that is to write.  I will be dangerous for God and I think it will be as a writer, but He hasn’t quite let me in on that yet.  (Although, maybe I’m just not listening…this call, despite my past yearning to be a writer, scares me a bit.)  So I decided that I would blog for right now (and take a course on writing).  I’ll share things about my life and what little wisdom I have to a cyberspace audience.  If it’s an audience of 1 or 1000, it doesn’t matter.  I strive to do this for the glory of God.

I pray that my thoughts, experiences and things God has taught me may benefit at least one person.

If not, eh…it’s a way to vent.

    Hey it’s so nice to meet you. Go to Forum’s in wordpress. Find or type in “blogging buddies.” Or what ever you wish. I am on that one and on one that says how many views does your blog have. This is a great way to meet others. Jackie a Christian friend.

    Now that I read your story on the blog post wow, you are an amazing woman. You have so many great qualities that I admire. My hubby walked out on me and his daughter when she was 1.5 years old. That is another story to tell…but Love – you show it and I see it. A wonderful wife and mother. I survived raising my daughter alone working three jobs; only God could have gotten me through that time as she is now 17-and I still have struggles. My ex doesn’t’ pay child support and she is 17! Imagine that. I am not a victim I am redeemed in Christ. I am a survivor. I am Your Friend.
