Who Are You?
I am a child of God, a woman, a wife, a mother,a daughter, a sister, a friend, a mentor, a volunteer and a geek. I have found I am most comfortable in my jeans and a T-shirt wearing ratty old flip flops. I do have a pair of black flip flops that are my "church flip flops" that remain in good condition, mainly because they are only worn on Sundays. I am a mom like all others that would like to be able to do it all, but I have thoroughly accepted that I cannot. I have spent years as an advisor to middle and high school aged young people but am still completely unprepared for my own children to be adolescents. I think that so much in life could be solved by responding and acting with love, and I think I need to take my own advice. I am very good at creating and encouraging community. Long ago I helped my husband lead recreation at several Presbyterian youth events and we have continued to serve in leadership roles at youth events. I work two days a week at a local toy store where my job title is elf. No joke, elf. Things I love: laughing, Disney, music, games of all kinds, the beach, the mountains, encouraging other people.
