Thank You for Visiting My Blog!
My husband and I reside with our rambunctious canines in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, USA. We were thrilled to begin our family this year with the birth of our son! I am a Christ-follower and rely on the Holy Spirit daily to navigate this often difficult life-road! “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:14 ESV
I was privileged to receive a comprehensive home education alongside my six siblings! Growing up on a farm, my parents stoked a passion in my soul for homesteading: supporting local farmers, raising livestock, growing veggies, and cooking at home! We dream of having more land ourselves one day. In the meantime, I love getting my hands dirty in our modest garden plot!
My college experience was atypical following high school. 7 years, 1 community college, and 2 online universities later, I graduated from Liberty University with a BS in Religion: Biblical and Theological studies. Perhaps I will one day have the funds and free time to pursue a master’s degree in Divinity!
While a student, I stumbled upon to opportunity to apprentice as a dog groomer and gained a skill that would help me pay college expenses faster. I later fell in love with this unique and challenging career and will soon be opening my grooming shop!
I enjoy working with children and teens, so I spent much of the last 10 years teaching through church groups and homeschool co-ops. I started this blog to motivate myself to be a consistent writer and finally focus on completing at least one of the writing projects that have floated aimlessly in my brain-space for too long! Being a consistent writer is difficult for me, mostly because I would rather daydream about being a famous author instead putting in the work.
Speaking of daydreaming; I spend too much time imagining Narnian-inspired worlds, dragons of all kinds, time traveling in a blue box, castle-sized libraries, and secret gardens surrounded by ancient stone walls.
Finally, I am a book dragon. Not a Bookworm. A Book Dragon. As in… books-are-treasures-and-my-home-looks-like-a-dragon’s-hoard! However, I am also content to spend enormous amounts of time binge-watching tv! Preferably… British murder mysteries, old cartoons, Marvel movies, Star Trek reruns, and Gordon Ramsey!
