I believe in strengthening families by strengthening mothers first! That is what this blog is all about.
I am a Mother. Having majored in Marriage, Family and Human Development at Brigham Young University, I get to say I use my degree every day raising six children ages 3-15. Fortunately, I get to share the parenting responsibility with my dear husband, J.
I am a Writer. From an early age I wrote...and wrote...and wrote. Writing has been a healing agent in my life through the thick and the thin. That's why I keep this blog...for my own health and well-being. Hopefully my writing will serve to uplift others as well.
I am a Teacher. I enjoy presenting thoughts and ideas that have helped to strengthen me and appreciate hearing the perspectives of others. I also teach my children in the home, some full-time and others with the few hours that I have with them each day.
I am a Yogi. Dealing with some semi-serious health challenges led me to yoga. I love it! A few yoga classes a week and I feel strong in body, mind and spirit.
I am a Book-reader and Movie-watcher. I love books and movies! There is so much to learn in this life and I'm grateful for these mediums in which to do it. I also find pure enjoyment in escaping through well-done stories created by others.
I am a Friend, a Sister, a Daughter and a Disciple of Christ. I find great purpose in building and strengthening the relationships in my life. Though not perfect at all of them all the time, I do have the desire to be better in each area of my life.
This is my Family!
My husband of 20 years, J. Hathaway. My rock! This guy keeps me grounded when so much of me wants to live the ideal perfectly. We currently live in Rexburg, Idaho where he teaches Statistics at BYU-Idaho.
My seven amazing, crazy, normal and eclectic kids: John, Brooklynn, Addie, Joel, Ethan, David & Donovan.
