I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast but have lived in almost every corner of this great state. I currently live with my husband and son in the piney woods of East Texas, where we have a small ranch complete with horses, cows, chickens, dogs, our donkey Buster, and our farm cat, Foxie. As I entered college, my dream was to live a life of adventure as a photographer, but I chose to go with something more stable, working as a speech-language pathologist for over twenty years. At the time I began to burn out, I also began to feel a tugging on my heart to write.
I joined a group called hope*writers, and the connections I made there paved a path for me and in May 2020, I launched my first book, Unstuck: Freeing Yourself From The Grips Of Your Safety Net And Living The Life of Purpose You Were Made For. After getting unstuck and enjoying my new role as a writer, I found myself wanting to write about cultivating a simple life, something I have been exploring for years. As I began to clear out space in my home, I felt called to surrender and also clear out space in my heart. Interestingly, God paved a path right back to the space where I felt so stuck. I settled back in with a positive attitude and refreshed perspective and enjoyed one of my best years as a public school speech-language pathologist.
My mission now is to share what I discover as I begin this journey of simplicity and surrender.
