I once thought I'd be a lifelong atheist. Then I became desperately unhappy, read up on philosophy and various religions (while assiduously avoiding Christianity), and waited for something to make sense. I was initially appalled when Christianity began to look like the sensible thing, surprised when I wanted to be baptized, and stunned that I ended up a Catholic. But I wouldn't change a bit of it. Life is happier and makes far more sense than it ever did before.
When I'm not pretending that I know how to teach math or impersonating a Craft Mom, I write: articles, books, blog posts and grocery lists.
A few other posts about the blog, writing, and me:
- How this blog got started: Clever Blog Names
- I like poetry.
- I once offered to pay off my kids if they would skip doing 4-H the following year. I am not particularly proud of this (though on some level I was pleased by my creative approach to the stress) but it sums up the kind of homemaker I am.
