Greetings!

I'm so glad you're here. Let's share a cuppa and chat.

I’m an English major undergrad - law school graduate turned homeschooling stay-at-home mother of six. Yes, you read that right ~ I have given up what could have been a lucrative law career for the only opportunity I will ever have to guide, nurture, and love the precious blessings the Lord has given me.

I’m living the dream I didn’t know I had. 

My husband and I have been married twenty-three years, and our three boys and three girls range in age from sixteen to five years old.

In the middle of all that somewhere, I've returned to my first love ~ writing. Writing notes to my children, blog posts, and now a novel!

Most afternoons while the kidlets nap, I escape the craziness of math tests and spelling lists, overflowing laundry and scads of art supplies, to spend time with my imaginary friends and the stories they live. When I'm not writing stories that find dashes of hope in the question marks of life, I'm blogging about parenting and home educating my large brood and finding faith in it all.

My fervent prayer is that when you leave here, you feel like you’ve read something worthwhile. 

Something uplifting or encouraging or just plain helpful. I would also be satisfied with entertainingThank you for your time spent here. I appreciate you!

"And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God." ~ Philippians 1:9-11

  3. wow. i'm sitting here having a little moment with God - so many blessings in your blog and i'm so grateful to have found it. i practiced law for several years, until our daughter turned one, at which point i finally summoned up enough courage to go home (or, rather, submit to the Holy Spirit's whispering in my ear). so, anyway, i was excited to see someone else step off that path for a greater one as well. ;)

    in peace.

    1. Do people think you're nuts for giving up a law career? Oh well, it truly is a much greater path, Autumn! I'm so glad you agree. Time rushes by so quickly - I don't want to miss a moment.

  4. Just found your blog. I can relate to the leaving a career. I finished nursing school and became a RN June 2002 and started homeschooling September 2002. At first I worked 32 hours a week. The second year 24 hours, the third and fourth 16 hours and final, and my fifth and final year of nursing I worked 8 hours a week per diem. I left nursing September 2007 and never looked back!!! I feel blessed to be able to stay home with my children. It is kind of funny, I worked so hard to get through nursing school (I went back after being married 8 years and 2 children later) and I don't regret at all that I now stay home with my 7 children full time.

    1. I was right in the middle of law school when I heard God whispering to me that I should stay home with my children. I thought of quitting, but my husband wanted me to finish. It's an insurance policy of sorts, if anything should ever happen to him or his income. Staying home and homeschooling has been the most rewarding and fulfilling thing I've ever done, no matter what the naysayers say! Thanks so much for commenting, and welcome!

  6. Lovely family, and it's so wonderful to meet another large family Christian woman with loads of education being currently put to use raising her family. :-P We have children relatively close in age: I have two girls, ages 13 and almost 11, then two boys, 8 and 5, and then two girls 3 and 2.

    In Christ,
    Melissa

  7. What a beautiful family. I like your blog. I'll be coming back soon. I am expecting my sixth and we have such small bedrooms. Fortunately, I think we can make one room work for multiples. We have four girls and one boy. Baby on the way makes five girls. Lots of girls, right?

    I'd love for you to stop by http://ladybugsabode.blogspot.com
