I have a Psychology and Elementary Education background and have always enjoyed seeking out the meanings in life relationships and experiences. Before becoming a stay at home mom, I taught First and Second Grade in Catholic Schools for 6 years. I write to gain understanding, clarity, and inspiration, in hopes of reaching others and to help myself process my own spiritual journey.
I write about my journey in being a caregiver for my mother, who has early onset Alcohol Induced and Vascular Dementia, and about my personal recovery with being an adult child of an alcoholic. I write about the role my Catholic faith plays in my life, and how it sustains me and gives me hope and strength to live an authentic and full life. I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, prayer, teaching the Catholic faith, scrap booking, traveling, cooking, knitting, running outdoors, and having fun with my 3 young kids, husband, family, and friends!
