I never thought I would have kids. I was raised in the era of liberated women and motherhood was not in the plan.
Then – BAM! At 30, baby fever hit me with a vengeance! Then came chapters of infertility and miscarriage.
God answered my prayers in ways I could never have imagined.
Because I’m a writer, I think about mothering a lot – the spiritual aspects, the practical aspects, the societal aspects.
Mothering: Becoming a mother has been the most joyous and painful experience of my life. I talk about the light and the shadows here.
Marriage: My first marriage was when I was 19 and scared and lasted a few years. I’ve been married to my husband Mark for almost 30! I talk about the journey here.
Working mothers: All moms are working mothers, but there are distinct differences between working in the home and out of the home. I share thoughts and strategies for making either work for you.
Mother quotes: I just like this stuff.
