I am a Christian. I “grew up in the church” as a preacher’s kid. I became a Christian when I was 13 years old and made the decision to be baptized for the forgiveness of my sins and to be added to His church. I don’t always follow God perfectly, but I rest in His grace. I follow His Word and seek to learn more about Him through study and prayer.
Before becoming a wife and mom, I was a social worker. I maintain my LMSW license and do part time counseling work. I’m dabbling in writing beyond my own blog (see my “I’m Published” badges).
I married my husband in July 2007. He was already active duty with the U.S. Army at the time. I left my family, friends, job, church, and life in Texas behind and began a new life as an army wife. Our adventure began in Colorado and took us to Germany. My husband separated from the Military in November 2014.
Dietrich has food allergies. I’ve adapted several recipes, which I’ve shared on this blog, to be egg free so he can still experience pancakes and cookies, in addition to being able to cook healthy meals for my family.
Partly due to my child’s allergies, and partly due to my own sensitivities to chemicals, I “dabble” in natural solutions for the home. I call myself a “slightly crispy,” rather than “crunchy” mom. Any links for essential oils will take you to my personal Young Living website though I do not push one brand over another or judge a person for choosing a different brand. My choice is based on my research and what works for me and my family.
