That's the short story.
The longer version is that I'm an idealistic Iowa gal married to a nutty Nebraska guy, and God has been weaving our lives together in St. Louis, Missouri. Slowly, I am starting to learn to trust the Author of my life and realize that His story is bigger and better than the one I would have written myself.
Once upon a time I taught English as a Second Language to children from all around the world, and someday I have dreams of working with immigrants and refugees again. Nowadays my main mission in life is to four precious people who daily remind me of a thousand reasons to be thankful. And sometimes that makes me a little bit nutty, too. But it's all good, and it's all about how He's transforming my heart one day at a time.
