About my blog and about me … well, that is a little complicated…
I have wanted to write all my life. I created my first short story when I was four – complete with illustrations and a construction paper cover. I have felt compelled to blog for years now, and after several people in my life suggested that I do so – here I am.
I was just figuring out a little about how to navigate WordPress when life took an unexpected turn – around a corner and then dropped down a dark hole. And all creating came to a screeching halt. So through work-related chaos; several family deaths; my parents divorce – and the ugly, psychotic drama, laden with such grotesque and shocking abuse; an unexpected move; financial strain; two consecutive pregnancies; Asperger’s diagnosis in myself and my first born; 3 years of medication-resistant postpartum depression and anxiety; MTHFR gene mutation; traveling for engraving school; finishing my Master Herbalist degree; husband entering seminary – this journey of progressive sanctification became a roller coaster ride. (I am not one for roller coaster rides! I’d much rather just ride the leisurely train that goes along the scenic route!)
In all of this – the tug to create has been ever present. I am grateful for the encouragement of so many to pursue writing – I have a long way to go: finding the right words has always been difficult for me – yet, I feel so compelled to do so, that I may possibly help others and bring Glory to God for the mercies He has graciously bestowed.
So I invite you, to follow me as I try to narrate the journey the Lord has placed me on.
