I am from Chesterfield, VA, but consider myself a North Carolinian now. I am a mother of three boys and one daughter, all so different, but full of love for each other. I love my family with all of my heart. My husband is my best friend and we love seeing each other grow and succeed. He, my children, and my extended family are the most important things to me other than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to stay busy, and life is never boring. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Southern Utah University in Interpersonal Communication, with a minor in English Literature. For hobbies, I love to sing, act, play the piano, bake, cook, spend time with friends and family, go shopping, read, write, dance, and even edit other people's grammar. I also find so much joy in sharing my testimony of Christ with others through word and deed, particularly through social media. That is one of the reasons why I started a blog!
