Who Am I?

All my life I’ve wanted to be a mom. I started babysitting at age 11, and continued to do so right up until I started my career as a pastor in 2009.  I’ve said since my early twenties that if I got to a certain point (early estimates were 28 or 29, but I’m a couple years past that) and wasn’t married, I’d start a family on my own.

So, I did it! E came to live with me in November of 2011, and I’m working on adopting him, balancing being pastor and parent, and keeping us both (mostly) sane. In October of 2013, I opened my home to the potential for other placements of children in foster care as well. Two months later, I met The Dude, and  in April 2014 he and his two kids, Girl-E and C, moved into the Parsonage with us.

I serve a small church and have two Etsy shops to help pay the bills and give me a creative outlet: Piecemaker’s Peace and The Purple Cow.

This blog began as a chronicle of my journey in motherhood, but has now merged with my “pastor” blog, http://sunlight-and-shadows.blogspot.com, and therefore will contain musings on family, faith, art, green living, and whatever else occurs in a mind that is almost as cluttered as my house.
