Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8 (ESV)
I prefer not to be defined by what I do or what I have; I prefer to be identified simply as a child of God, saved by grace. And my greatest joy is to encourage others.
But in case you're curious . . .
I am a former Christian school teacher and Recreation Therapist/Activities Director. I live in a small town in the Mohawk Valley in Upstate New York, an area rich in history and natural beauty.
My husband, Paul, and I are the parents of four young adults and a son-in-law. All four of them, and their peers, inspire and challenge me. They are bright, creative, innovative thinkers, driven, and out to change the world.
I love to hike, explore, and walk my three small, mixed-breed dogs. I also love to spend time with my family, to read, and to write.
