About MeA single mom with 2 grown kids and a baby boy almost ready to fly the nest, I enjoy writing, serving Christ and hanging out with my kids. I tend to see things a little differently than most folks, but I love that different drummer I march to. I like to reach out to other women and try to help them make it through this crazy chaos we call life. I try to do it with faith, fellowship and an occasional dose of common sense. Come follow me as I learn more about my faith, serving the Savior, reaching for the prize of the high calling, growing and glowing as The Son Shines Through Me.
