I am a Christian. God has richly blessed my life. I am married to my wonderful husband, Alan. We are the parents of a precious girl, Anna Ruth. We have some special pets in our lives: our fur babies ~ JR and Emma. (We also have several special pets who have already crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and we miss them very much!) I used to be a second grade teacher, but I decided to resign to be a stay at home mother. I hope to teach full time again someday. I love staying at home with my precious girl and interacting with her each day. In my spare time, I enjoy scrapbooking, cross-stitching, collecting Boyds bears, and shopping.
