Just some fun and random things about me!
I am a wife and mom to three wild kids whom I love like crazy! We have fluffy dog who follows me everywhere. I am a teacher by day. I LOVE teaching not just kids, but people too! I enjoy researching and throwing myself into (read “become obsessive”) various topics.
I love to read! I have VERY eclectic reading tastes. Checkout some of my faves on Goodreads! Some days I am reading nutritional information and research, other days I am reading children’s fantasy. When I am not reading, I am listening to books and podcasts. It is not unusual for me to have four different books/podcasts/audiobooks going at once.
Softball, weight lifting, running, yoga, and water sports are some of my favorite ways to be active. In the summer I enjoy gardening. This is a new hobby for me, so I’ll take all the help I can get! I enjoy cooking, but HATE to clean up the dishes, specifically pots and pans.
I used to play a lot of video games, but now you’ll find me playing pocket games on my iPhone. However, I love old fashioned board games and card games. My favs are Yahtzee, Rummy, Sequence, and Trouble.
And of course, I throw myself into (read “become obsessive”) TV shows and movies. Binge watching TV is the only way I can watch a show. I’m too impatient to wait until “next week’s” episode. I don’t know how I survived before TiVo and DVRs!
I am a Christ follower. I hate injustice and often feel paralyzed about how many people need God’s love and grace, not to mention food, shelter, and clothing. I constantly have to remind myself of Jill Briscoe’s words, “Your mission field is between your own two feet at any time.”
Enough about me, I want to get to know YOU! Feel free to comment in a post that looks interesting to you and let me know how you ended up here and what I can do to help!
