New Year, New Blog

a fresh, new look and bold, thoughtful content at

At long last, after several years’ hiatus, I am back to blogging regularly! And I’m so excited to be back at my own home on the interwebs.

Let’s catch up!

I‘m a little older (not much!), a lot more healthy, and just as busy as before.

YourPhoto_0032My children are so big now, ranging from seven to sixteen. Teaching elementary, middle school, and high school simultaneously is more fun than I expected. We’re still eclectically classical, using Tapestry of Grace, textbooks, Red Wagon Tutorials, and lively discussions. I feel like we’ve settled into our own unique learning culture that is comfortable and enjoyable.

My husband is still the super hero of the family. He works as a banker, coaches two competitive soccer teams, directs an AWANA ministry, and keeps me sane. I’m so grateful to see our children taking after him more and more.

I still love coffee and tea and reading; hate housework and crafts and scary movies; and play the piano and violin and Pandora.

What’s new with me?

I’m working as a freelance marketing copywriter; my primary client is a Dallas marketing firm. I’m very excited to begin teaching English this coming fall with Red Wagon Tutorials. My days are pretty full now, writing the lessons and the brand-new student notebooks for those classes. That’s two books to write this year! And on top of that, I hope to write my own work of nonfiction this year, as well. I think 2015 will be an exciting year!

  • Influence/Leadership
