I’m just a girl who has found through her Savior to be a creative being. Life has become an everchanging journey of inspiration as God opens my eyes wider each day; wider to the beauty of his creation and his created. On this journey he is teaching me the freedom of nonjudgment in how I view things, others, and even myself. This has even allowed me to be free from others’ judgment of myself as well. Yes, I’m a liberated woman.
I’m married to the hunkiest man ever and have two children. We are a homeschooling family, but I think that I am learning more from my kids than they are from me. The kids are very different in their learning styles and interests, so our home is always full of grand adventures. My teenage daughter is a wonderful baker, artist, poet and musician. My son is a book writer, game player, musician and comedian.
My husband is a freelance videographer with his specialty being the jib arm. “What’s a jib arm?” you ask. Check out his website at www.sjps.tv. He is extremely creative and has a great eye for the perfect video shot. My accounting degree does come in a little handy as I take care of his bookkeeping and administrative needs. His wild and crazy schedule also adds interest to our lives.
The things I love to do ebb and flow just like all of life. Right now I love:
- making fermented and whole foods just because they taste so good.
- being teacher and guide to my children as their natural talents and skills emerge.
- working in my Moleskine art journal and my altered hymnal.
- writing, so if I’m not journaling in my Moleskine, I am journaling on some paper somewhere. There’s something wonderful about the feel of ink on paper.
- soldering. This entered our lives this year after my daughter and I took a class. We’ve even opened up etsy shops last year to sell our soldered charms and rings.
- investing my life in people. Besides investing my time and self with my family, I also listen for God’s leading to determine what direction he wants me to go.
- blogging, twittering, facebooking.
Just to name a few, and not in any particular order.
