I'm complicated and simple. I'm a mother and a wife. I work and wish I didn't. I want to spend the rest of my life writing a better story both on paper and in the minds of those who love me. I like social media but I have a hard enough time keeping up with my life in 'real-time'. I have a hard time promoting myself & yet I try as a blogger/writer. Also I think it is imperative we do good where-ever, when-ever we can. That's why I take at least 1 mission trip a year! God help me!
