I am a mom of 4 (two boys ages 8 and 6, two girls ages 4 and 9 months), and have been married for almost 10 years. We started homeschooling about 6 years ago. Both my husband and I were homeschooled, so we count it a great honour and privilege to be able to do the same for our children! We live in Ontario, Canada, and love the winter because it means we get to spend time together as a family on the slopes. I started blogging in 2008 as a way to keep track of my recipes, then started doing a bible study with some other women online, and writing what God was teaching me as he laid it on my heart. I never enjoyed creative writing in school, so this has been a huge stretch and surprising area of joy in my life. Since then I have been encircled by some amazing writers and women who have encouraged me along the way to actually call myself a writer. I try to stay focused in my blogging on writing what God places on my heart to write so I can keep the main things the main things – God, family, then everything else!
