I'm still working to answer "who am I?" The easy answers: a wife, a mom, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a writer, a home-school teacher, a dreamer... But, behind all that, who am I? Gradually, I'm learning to celebrate more foundational things about me. I thrive on meeting new people and hearing some about their stories. I seek to find and appreciate beauty wherever I am. I value nourishing friendships--with my older children and with kindred spirits. I am a grieving mom, leaning on God and looking for hope. I am passionate about identifying dreams and pursuing them---for myself and, more importantly, encouraging others around me to do so. Who am I? I'm a COLORFUL HEART!
