Here's a bit more about me and what you can expect from my writing...
I'm a believer in Jesus and bride to a handsome combo of economist brains and farmer brawn, Greg. I'm a part-time administrative assistant, an occasional piano virtuoso, and a full-time farm wife in training.
My home is in Kansas, where I was born and raised, but part of my heart belongs to Missouri, which made me who I am.
I'm a fan of sunshine, Mexican food, grace, Jane Austen, country music, my people, and coffee. Oh, and green grass.
It’s always greener on the other side, or so it seems. Rather than resigning myself to constant comparison, I'm choosing to cultivate a lush life--one that's abundant and fruitful not only for me but also for others--on my own side of the fence.
How? Well, for one thing, I’ve predetermined that when life hands me a “laugh or cry” situation, I’m going to laugh! If you stick around, you just might enjoy a chuckle as well.
I’m also embracing burden-light living. What’s that? It’s what Jesus talked about when He said, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30) This burden-light way of living has been infusing new life into my faith, relationships, and how I care for myself.
Won’t you join me?
