If you’re wondering who is dishing out all this advice, well…
I ’ve been following Jesus since my freshman year in college. That was a very long time ago. My relationship with God affects everything I believe and everything I do. Hopefully, my blog reflects this Biblical worldview.
My husband and I got married in 1979, and we are still enthusiastically in love with each other. Pete works full-time leading a small non-profit ministry that combines his high-tech background with his life as a disciple of Jesus.
Starting in Silicon Valley, we moved to Colorado in 1993. For 22 years, my husband and I lived on 5 acres in Colorado, with Ponderosa pines and a field of
weeds wildflowers. Finally we realized it was time to downsize, so we’re back in suburbia in a smaller house, minus the chickens and huge garden, but still with room for flowers and veggies, and plenty of guest space.
We have two wonderful daughters (and a terrific son-in-law) and three granddaughters. We’ve been quite impressed with how they have taken on life’s challenges. Once in a while, they humor us and ask for our advice. We think they’re quite capable of making excellent decisions.
Since I’ve more or less worked myself out of my job as Mom, at least as a full-time position, I now work as an admin assistant and book editor. My spare time is spent watching birds, taking photographs, gardening, and trying new recipes. I also visit the Y, have a social life, and make random stabs at keeping the house somewhat clean and the laundry pile under control. Let’s just say I’m not bored.
