My Secret Wish is that you would become the most fabulous version of yourself.

What I Do:

  • I aim to inspire through fiction, my blog, knitting patternsrecipes, and freelance articles. (And my music, too.)
  • I edit and coach other writers into creating their best work. (More on that coming soon.)
  • I'm a work-from-home mom to four amazing boys. Three grew in my womb, one grew in my heart, but was taken home to heaven in June, 2015.
  • I cook from scratch, grow as much of my own food as I can, and eat traditional, whole-food style. I believe that giving the body whole-food support can prevent many illnesses.
  • In my "spare time", I love getting into my garden, taking care of my chickens, cats, and dog, and exploring other hobbies (photography, sewing and scrapbooking are favourites.)

Why I Do It:

  • I believe God put you and me and every other person on this earth for a reason.
  • I believe that spreading love and kindness is one of the most important things we can do.
  • I believe that this world can be an amazing, magical place, but we all need to be a part of making the magic happen.
  • I believe in mermaids and faeries. I really want to be a mermaid when I grow up.
  • I believe that you can make a difference in your world today.

My goal is to inspire you to reach higher, try harder, and be better. I want you to realize your full potential, and always know how fabulous you are. May you be uplifted by visiting me today. Please drop me a note to let me know you were here—I'd love to hear from you!
