This part is always difficult for me because I’m learning that being a mom, wife, teacher, blogger…. the list goes on, does not define me, so I hesitate to introduce myself in that way. However, I also realize that all those roles are a part of me- are being used by God to make me more like Him, and THAT is my identity: a woman belonging to my Lord, a work in progress, saved by grace, bearing the righteousness of Christ.
I live in southern Oregon and have two kiddos- my daughter Korrie, 17 and attending classes at our local community college, and my son Joseph, 14.
I was married right out of high school and, rather than becoming the expected statistic, God has blessed us with 18 years of marriage (most of them wonderful). I spent half of my life as an unbeliever walking in sin. That sin led to a daughter, which led to a marriage, which led me to the realization that I was in desperate need of a Savior. And here I am, still trying to figure out life. But I’m not alone am I, because you’re seeking to figure it out right alongside me, aren’t you?
