About Me

486567_4197363546150_1249138451_nI am a wife and a mother.  The birth of my first child led to a complete reevaluation of my life and the choices I was making.  Up to that point, I was a career woman.  I had a well paid government position doing what I loved and traveling all over the world.  And at that point I thought that that is what I would be doing for the rest of my life.  And then things changed.

My first daughter came into my life.  All of a sudden I was paying closer attention to what I used to clean my home, what I was feeding my family, and most dramatic of all, I began to toy with the idea of changing my career.  I left my cushy government job and became a Realtor.  It was a perfect job for me and gave me the flexibility I needed at the time to be home with my daughter but also help bring in some income.

When my second child came along, I decided to leave real estate altogether.  One child is one thing, but two was a whole different story.  I found it difficult to be there for both of my kids and still be there for my clients.  As I prayed and asked God what to do, I was strongly convicted to just be a stay-at-home-mom.

I am an academic and a researcher at heart.  I graduated from Colby College with bachelor’s degree in economics and in international studies.  I later got my master’s in national security and strategic studies.  I am not spending a lot of time researching national security issues these days, but that side of me has led me to research everything else.  I first decided to use my research skills to blog about  food and nutrition, but as my spiritual life has gotten more robust, I have felt God leading me to write about Him as well and our spiritual walk and growth as a family.

My God and my family are my everything.  This blog has given me a voice to share with you my struggles to keep my family spiritually and physically safe and healthy.
