Personal Statement

I love God with all my heart, soul and mind. I am a work in progress, a woman of good intentions, but I fall almost as much as I walk on my journey...He loves me anyway! I am so thankful to have Him in my life.

I have been married since July 10, 1993-some days it seems like yesterday-some days like forever... 

We have been blessed with six beautiful children (what can I say, Wal-Mart was having a buy one get one free deal and I couldn't stop myself...), a cat, a puppy and other living "things" on occasion.

If my body and sanity were guaranteed to hold up I would keep having babies forever...or at least until we got an ugly one.

I am an inspirational, humorist writer. I write for magazines and I am the author of "A Mother's Journey: Through Laughter and Tears".

I was an elementary school teacher in my previous life before children.

 "Moms" are one of my ministries in life, both with my writing and speaking. Motherhood is such a blessed calling and I applaud all of us that are taking this challenge!  

I am a transplanted "Buckeye"...originally I am from Indiana. I still hold a special place in my heart for Notre Dame Football, but have grown to love OSU and the Cleveland Browns as well.

I am Catholic-thankfully we live right across the street from our parish or we would never be to church on time. Hey, you try to get six kids and yourself ready on time...

Two vices...well, two that immediately come to mind, chocolate and cappuccino, not the "real" cappuccino, but the gas station/store bought glorified hot chocolate kind. I hope that doesn't make me less of a "real" woman.  

I am an avid reader. I can devour a book and you can often find me curled up late at night (or early morning-who needs sleep anyway!) with a flashlight in bed.  

I admit, sometimes I would rather talk to the voices in my head than the person next to me... If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad. ~George Gordon, Lord Byron

I am faithful, a good listener (and talker), funny, laid back, and take to heart others' emotions. I go above and beyond for anyone that I consider a friend. I believe in "kindred spirits"...

I could go on and on (obviously), but this is a little taste of me.
